• When will we collect your personal information

We do not sell your personal infomation. Generally speaking, TabTimer collects personal information (including sensitive information) via express consent or inferred consent only; when customers enquire or purchase from TabTimer, when persons subscribe to receive information from TabTimer, or when information is publicly available which shows that TabTimer products and services have a strong link to the role or function of the person and their business.

Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your personal information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties and publicly available information to enable us to conduct and promote our business. In such a case when requested we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by such third party.


• The types of personal information that we may collect from you

The type of information which TabTimer collects about customers and subscribers will depend on how they use the services offered by TabTimer. We collect information solely to enable us to communicate with you better about relevant products and services. 

We only collect information that you tell us about yourself, information that is publicly available and information about where, why and how you use our web site and our products.

Examples of personal and sensitive information we may collect include: names, addresses, email addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, how and why our products are relevant to you and your health, if known. This information is obtained in many ways including orders, registration on our website, correspondence, by telephone and facsimile, by email, via our website, at interviews and meetings, and from third parties. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that contact.

In some circumstances we also collect credit card information off-line and take care to ensure this information is not shared outside our business other than for processing your order. Our e-commerce website uses a secure payment gateway connection linked directly to an authorised global online credit card payment gateway provider with a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance certificate following a set of rules created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. Information you provide to them is not shared with us.

When we collect personal information if requested we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
