We require personal data to conduct our business including the following examples:

Some personal data are legally considered to be sensitive and are subject to additional safeguards. Sensitive data include: race, ethnic origin, genetics, health, sexual orientation, criminal convictions.

- Hardcopy (e.g. a business card or CV)
- Publicly available records (e.g. Google, PubMed)

How information is shared
Indigo Medical will not sell or rent your personal information with anyone, but we may need to share your information with other third parties to allow us to fulfil our obligations to you. For example, we may share your information with a pharmaceuticals company to allow a contract to be drawn up, or with a logistics provider to arrange your travel to a meeting.
How your information is kept safe
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
You have specific legal rights around your personal data and how we use it. Please bear in mind that some may not be actionable in specific circumstances. If you would like to discuss or exercise any of these rights, please get in touch with us using the details under the ‘who we are and what we do’ heading above.

Updates to this policy
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION POLICY
The aim of this policy is to outline Indigo Medical’s commitment to complying with the Equality Act 2010, and to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion across the Group and in our interactions with third-party clients and suppliers, as well as the wider society.
It is our belief that every person at Indigo Medical should be treated fairly and with the dignity and respect they deserve, regardless of their characteristics which may include those protected by UK Government legislation, as well as those that are not protected. See definitions below for a list of characteristics.
Diversity: This is a perceived difference in characteristics in comparison to another person or group. Depending on their characteristics, each person will experience different privileges and non-privileges e.g., a black woman compared to a white man; or a poor old man compared to a rich young woman.
Equity: This is an approach that ensures an individual’s needs are met. This is opposed to people being treated equally which may not be applicable in all circumstances because often one person does not need what another person needs, for example, the way a person is managed or training opportunities may differ from person-to-person, depending on their needs.
With regards to reward, pay equity is equal pay for work of equal value; and equal pay for equal work addresses situations in which men and women do the same work.
Inclusion: This is an experience of authenticity where a person feels safe, seen, heard, respected, and engaged, regardless of their personal characteristics, while interacting with one or more people. It is also the practice of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized.
As a company, Indigo Medical has a responsibility to foster a culture where our staff can thrive; feel engaged and motivated to do meaningful work; feel valued; and add value through supporting personal growth, as well as that of the business and our clients. With this in mind, we are committed to being proactive in our efforts to achieve the following:
- To create a safe space to openly discuss and raise awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion across the company; what it means exactly; and how it affects each of us personally through our lived experiences. This can be achieved through training sessions as well as informal meetings.
- To safely discuss non-work topics such as gender, race, mental health, and discrimination, to remove stigmas, and encourage people to speak up and no longer cover aspects of themselves at work.
- To recognise, understand and celebrate our individual differences and contributions, so that we can foster an open, creative, and collaborative culture.
- Upskill Managers on how to manage themselves and others to prevent harassment, bullying, victimisation, discrimination, and promote positive employee experiences.
- Monitor the diversity of the workforce regarding information such as age, gender, ethnic background, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and disability etc. for reporting purposes; to improve diversity and business performance; and to help design and implement SCIRIS Group Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance (ESG) initiatives.
- Ensure all people are treated with dignity and respect throughout the entire employee lifecycle from recruiting and hiring; growing and keeping; and through to them leaving.
- Consider and include all the above in any employee engagement initiatives, incorporating them into action plans which will be created and agreed by Senior Management.
- Senior Management to be responsible for leading the implementation of any relevant actions, and for reviewing, evolving, and reporting on the outcomes.
