Personal information requested from you when using this site has been kept to a minimum and is held securely. Stryker UK Limited will use your personal data for the proper operation and functioning of the website. The data will be used for administration purposes by being held on a database so that we have a record of our users' details and so that we can monitor the number of people accessing the site.

Information you may receive from us

In addition to the information which is posted on the website, we also offer supplemental bulletins which, if you so choose, will be sent to you directly by e-mail once you have submitted an expression of interest. These bulletins may cover a range of topics which you may be interested in and may include educational updates, details of forthcoming Stryker conferences and some Stryker product information. If you would like to receive these e-mail bulletins, please tick the box which appears on the Expression of Interest form. Note that if you opt to receive these bulletins but at a later stage decide that you no longer wish to receive them, please let us know by deselecting the option on our website. Instructions on how to do this will be available both on our website and with all the e-mail bulletins.

Transfers of Information

The personal information which you provide to us will be held on a central database by Stryker UK Limited in the UK.

It may also become necessary to employ a third party organisation to manage the database in which your data is contained.
