We value your privacy. This notice is to inform our clients of our privacy policy which pertains to both this website and our e-newsletter service. By agreeing to the terms of this policy and using this website, you consent to our use of cookies as laid out below.

Collection of Data
Personal information such as your email address, name, or company may be required by Fountain Medical (Pty) Ltd. and/or vital baby® for certain services. Any personal and identifiable information provided is optional but opting out of doing so may limit access to some of our services.

Disclosure of Data
Neither Fountain Medical (Pty) Ltd. nor vital baby® will disclose any of your personal information without your permission except under specific circumstances, such as when disclosure is required by law. All information collected by Fountain Medical (Pty) Ltd. and/or vital baby® is treated as confidential. Your privacy is important to us, so it is essential that you understand the way your information is collected and used. Please be sure to review our Privacy Policy periodically in case of any changes. Comments and feedback regarding this policy are welcomed.

Personal Information
We only collect personal information that has been knowingly and voluntarily submitted by our website visitors. This information may be collected in order to provide you with further services or to communicate with customers who present any requests or queries. We aim to protect your personal information from being dealt with in any way that is inconsistent with privacy laws in South Africa.

Use of Information
We will only use your personal information for the purpose for which it is submitted, or for secondary purposes relating to the primary purpose. Other use of information will be disclosed at the time of collection. Copies of website correspondence are stored as archives for record-keeping and back-up only.
You are free to opt-out of news and offers, and these will not be sent to you unless you sign up to receive them.

Collecting Information on Registered Members
When registering with us, you may need to provide additional personal information to take full advantage of our services. Registration is optional and may include submitting your name, contact information, address, and consent on receiving updates and promotional material. This information is easily accessible any time you log into your online account.
All vital baby® products are tested and adhere to strict legislated guidelines, but we will still keep your information on file in the case of any potential issues concerning a product you may have purchased. If, however, you do not want us to keep your information on file, please email fountain@babies.co.za to let us know.

Credit Card Details
Credit Card details are only sorted for the processing of payments and are deleted once payment is processed.

Disclosure
Apart from where you have consented to disclosure as necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was submitted, we may choose to disclose personal information in situations where we have reason to believe it is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against an individual. In the case of any persons damaging, injuring, or interfering with our rights, property, site users, or other individuals, we may disclose information where we believe the law requires it. We may also engage third parties to act on our behalf to bring you goods and services, in which case personal information may be disclosed for such purposes.

Security
While no online data transmission is ever completely secure, we regularly review and update our security measures in keeping with current technologies. We take the reasonable steps required to protect your personal information when purchasing our products and services. All employees and contractors who provide services
related to our information systems are obliged to respect the integrity and confidentiality of any information held by us. We are not, however, responsible for a breach in our security or unauthorised access to your personal information.
