Our Commitment to Privacy

At Leading Medical Clinics of the World Inc. (“Leading Medical Clinics of the World” or “LMCW” or “we” or “us”), your privacy is important to us. To keep you informed of our approach to the collection and retention of your personal information, we provide this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explaining our online information practices and our privacy protection measures. To make this policy easy to find, we make it available on our home page and at every webpage on our website (the “Site”) where personal information may be collected.

Unless we state otherwise in this Privacy Policy or at the time personal information is collected, any personal information you provide to Leading Medical Clinics of the World will be known only to two parties: you and Leading Medical Clinics of the World. We will not share or sell your personal information with advertisers, marketing firms or promotions companies unless you provide consent thereto.

The following policy is intended to explain how your personal information will be treated as you make use of our Site.

Definition of “Personal Information”

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual or information that can be used directly to distinguish or infer an individual’s identity – such as their name – or used indirectly to identify an individual when used in conjunction with other distinguishing information, such as their birth date. For example, “personal information” could include your name, e-mail address, telephone number, username and any other information you may provide on the site which could allow you could be identified through the use of that information, alone or in combination with other information. As it applies in Canada, “personal information” does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.

  3. Consent: Your consent will be obtained for the collection, use or disclosure of personal information, except where the law provides an exemption.
  4. Limiting Collection: The personal information we collect shall be limited only to that which is necessary for the purposes identified.
  5.

Personal information shall be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
  6. Accuracy: We shall keep personal information as accurate, complete and up-to-date as may be necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used.

You are entitled to challenge the accuracy and completeness of that personal information and request that it be amended, if appropriate.
  10. Handling Enquiries or Complaints: Any questions or enquiries concerning compliance with our privacy policies and procedures may be addressed to our Privacy Officer, as set out below.

Sharing Information With Others

We are not in the business of selling personal information to others.

In certain circumstances, we may be required to provide personal information to third parties for legal or regulatory purposes.

As we continue to develop and grow, we may buy or sell parts of our business. As our business consists primarily of user relationships, information regarding the particular business being purchased or sold could include personal information and be one of the transferred business assets.

Use of Cookies and Traffic Data

To help us serve you better, we may collect information that does not identify you personally, but rather identifies your computer or browser through the use of cookies. “Cookies” are pieces of information placed in the settings of your web browser by a website server to identify your computer when you return to a website. Whenever a site welcomes you and tailors data to your specifications, it is reading a cookie left in your browser and identifying information that you may have registered during previous visits, such as your viewing preferences.

We may use cookies to keep track of your status as a user of our site, to tailor information to your preferences or for other similar purposes. Cookies also help us estimate and report the size of our viewing community and traffic. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of certain features enjoyed by other users of our website.

Each time a user visits the Site, our server – like most on the internet – collects some basic technical information, including, for example, referral data (e.g., we record the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to the Site) and browser and platform type (e.g., a Safari browser on a Macintosh platform).

We also count, track and aggregate the user’s activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our site (e.g., tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic flows within the site, etc.). To these ends, we may merge information about users and visits into group data, but we will not disclose your individual identity or personally identifiable data without your permission. When we do present aggregated information to outside companies, no one will be able to identify you or contact you.

How We Safeguard Your Personal Information

We employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect our systems and all personal information under our control against unauthorized access and use. All safety and security measures are appropriate and may not use the information for any unauthorized purpose.

Our service providers and agents are required to maintain users’ confidentiality, and may not use the information for any unauthorized purpose.

LMCW employees are governed by strict standards and policies to ensure that personal information is secure and treated with the utmost care and respect.


LMCW does not retain your personal information for any longer than is strictly necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected.

Other Sites

The Site may contain links to other third party sites that are not governed by this Privacy Policy. Although we endeavor to link only to sites with high privacy standards, our Privacy Policy will no longer apply once you leave this Site. We are not responsible for privacy policies employed by other third parties since they would be governed by privacy legislation applicable in their country of residence. We suggest, therefore, that you examine the privacy statements of those sites to learn how personal information may be collected, used and/or disclosed.

Data Storage in the United States

Please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States or other countries where our servers are located. The data protection, lawful access and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that LMCW does take steps pursuant to laws in the United States to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using our Site, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities as described in this Privacy Policy.

Change to this Privacy Policy

Leading Medical Clinics of the World may update this Privacy Policy in the future. We will notify our users about material changes to this Privacy Policy by either sending a notice to the e-mail address you provided to us or by placing a prominent notice on our Site.
