Using the eIntegrity Learning Portal
In consideration of your having paid, and eIntegrity having accepted, a Licence fee (or entering into a payment plan as referred to below), eIntegrity grants you, the End User, rights to access the Training Content subject to acceptance of these Terms and Conditions as set out below.
eIntegrity has an Agreement with the Training Content Developers which is subject to conditions which cannot be varied and which are reflected in this End User Licence. By accessing the Training Content you, the End User, accept the following conditions:
You agree to use this site only for lawful purposes, and in a manner that does not infringe the rights of, or restrict or inhibit the use and enjoyment of this site by any third party. Such restriction or inhibition includes, without limitation, conduct which is unlawful, or which may harass or cause distress or inconvenience to any person, and the transmission of obscene or offensive content or disruption of normal flow of dialogue within this site.
Neither eIntegrity, nor any Agent distributing Licences on behalf of eIntegrity, nor the Training Content Developers, nor HEE e-LfH (individually and severally covered here by the designation ‘eIntegrity’) make any specific claims about the suitability of the Training Content for any particular purposes. The suitability of the Training Content to your, the End User’s, needs is wholly a matter for your judgement. While reasonable professional care has been taken in developing the Training Content, eIntegrity make no warranties concerning the correctness or completeness of the TrainingContent. To the maximum extent allowed by law, eIntegrity excludes all claims against it howsoever arising from errors and omissions in and use of the Training Content save that nothing in these terms and conditions shall purport to limit liability for personal injury or death caused by negligence or for fraud.
Log-in codes or passwords required to access the Training Content are provided for your personal use only and cannot be shared with anyone else unless the commercial terms under which the Licence is issued specifically allow for multiple use. You are required to take reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised use by others and to report such use to eIntegrity. You accept liability for any losses to eIntegrity arising from your deliberately sharing log-in codes or your failure to show appropriate diligence in keeping your code confidential.
Access to the Training Content requires the functioning of servers, websites and internet connections. eIntegrity undertakes to provide a service at least meeting e-learning industry norms for those elements of availability which are under its control. It does not undertake to provide availability to the Training Content at any specific time. Under the conditions of this Licence, eIntegrity specifically excludes liability to you or any third party for losses arising from the non- availability of access to the Training Content at any particular time. If you provide evidence that the general availability of access is inferior to that which could be expected under normal industry standards because of failure on the part of eIntegrity, eIntegrity may provide compensation which will not in any event exceed the price paid by you, or on your behalf, to purchase this Licence.
eIntegrity Subscription Services
Licences are purchased for twelve months on a single-user basis.
Organisations purchasing multiple Licences can purchase Licences for End Users and upload the Licences at any time within 12-months of the invoice date. Once uploaded, Licences expire after 12-months. All Licences purchased must be allocated to End Users within 12-months of the date of the invoice.
In addition to the annual single user Licence fee, eIntegrity provides a monthly payment plan option for some programmes when purchasing Licences online via the eIntegrity website. When selecting a payment plan option, you accept that:
- Payments are automatically debited from your chosen payment method each subscription period
- Payments automatically continue unless cancelled by you
- You can cancel your subscription any time after all 12 payments of your payment plan havebeen debited by emailing [email protected]. Your minimum commitment to pay is a sum equivalent to the value of all 12 payments representing the full Licence fee. This applies even if you have set up the monthly payment plan and cancel before the first payment is taken. You will be invoiced for and will be liable to pay the outstanding balance in the event of any cancellation prior to all 12 payments of your payment plan having been debited. Such invoice will be payable within 30 days of the invoice date.
- You are responsible for cancelling your subscription. You must allow a minimum of two working days for cancellation prior to the next scheduled automatic payment. eIntegrity operating hours are Monday to Friday 0900-1700 UK time, not including public holidays, subscription cancellation requests will not be actioned during weekends and UK public holidays. Refunds are not provided for cancellation requests that are not received within the period stated above and are not available at all for any cancellation request relating to the first 12 months of any payment plan option where the provisions of the precedeing paragraphs shall apply.
- Note that subscription services (and payment plans) are only available for programmes priced at £100 or more. Single annual licence purchases are available for one-off payments and it is up to you to renew your licence(s). We will send you a renewal reminder approximately one month before any licence held by you expires.
What information does eIntegrity hold?
eIntegrity captures certain information on each user as part of the registration process. This data enables the creation of an accurate user profile, which is necessary for reporting purposes and to offer users learning that is relevant to their needs. The data that is stored is limited to information relating to users’ work, such as their job role, place of work or membership number for a professional body (e.g. General Medical Council number). We will never ask for your home address or any other domestic information.
When accessing the eIntegrity Portal on the e-LfH Hub, you will be asked to set up some security questions, which may contain personal information. These questions are solely intended to enable users to log in if they forget their password and will never be used for any other purpose. The answers that users submit when setting up these security questions are encrypted in the database so that no-one can view what has been entered, not even e-LfH administrators.
e-LfH also store a record of all learning activity by all users on portal.eintegrity.org and on e- lfh.org.uk, including posts on forums or other communication media and all enquires to the e-LfH Service Desk.
How does eIntegrity process the information we hold?
Information collected by eIntegrity is solely processed to deliver online learning and to store and report on users’ learning activity. It will never be sold for financial gain or shared with other organisations for commercial purposes.
Examples of how eIntegrity might use the data held include but are not limited to the following:
- For internal review
- Customising the content and/or layout of the portal.eintegrity.org and on e-lfh.org.uk
- Notifying users about updates to the portal.eintegrity.org and on e-lfh.org.uk
- Gathering feedback or input on the service, content or layout of the portal.eintegrity.organd on e-lfh.org.uk
- Giving users access to their own learning history
- Making users’ learning activity records visible to specific named individuals, such as tutors,to allow tutors to view their trainees’ activity. A user would have to give their explicit approval to authorise another user to view their records (however eIntegrity users that are accessing Training Content as part of an agreement with an employer or overarching body/organisation may have their learning activity shared with them).
- Providing anonymous summary data to partner organisations, such as professional bodies or organisations.
Who can see users’ data?
eIntegrity and e-LfH administrators and other approved people working within eIntegrity and e-LfH have access to users’ training records and user profiles. This may include our suppliers but such organisations will be asked to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements and will never be allowed to use the information for commercial purposes.
Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), you have many rights regarding your personal data, including seeing what data we hold for you, your right for erasure and also withdrawing consent of data processing. Note that withdrawing consent will result in your account being anonymised and access to the e-LfH Hub removed.
