Detect by MedTech Engine allows users to create company profiles or to submit additional data to existing profiles for publishing.

Security Policy

The security of our website is of the utmost importance to us. Our site uses software to provide high-level SSL encryption technology.

There are two simple ways to check if a page on our website is secure; firstly, a small padlock sign will appear in the bottom bar of your browser and secondly, the ‘http’ will be replaced with ‘https’ at the front of medtechengine.com in the browser address window. Although we use advanced security measures to protect your information against loss, misuse and alteration, as with all computer networks linked to the internet, we cannot make absolute guarantees about the security of the information you provide over the internet and so we cannot be held responsible for it.

Please note that email correspondence is free format text and cannot be encrypted, therefore it is not a secure means of communication. Never send any sensitive information, such as passwords or credit card information, via email. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Cookies

Cookies are small files of information that are stored by your internet browser on your computer’s hard drive. They allow web applications to respond to you as an individual, tailoring its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. A cookie does not give us access to your computer or any information about you other than the data you choose to share with us.

MedTech Engine uses traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used and to manage user sessions. This helps us to analyse data about which pages you use most and to provide you with a better website tailored to your needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and the data is then removed from the system.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies, if you prefer. However, this may prevent you from taking full advantage of our website. To enable cookies, follow the instructions for the browser version you are using.

Policy changes

Any future changes to our Security and Privacy Policy will be posted on this page.
