Privacy Policy

Effective Date: 9 February 2020

Your Privacy Rights

CT Operations International USA Inc., CT Operations PTY LTD and CT Operations International LTD”, (“Oculo”, “us,” “we,” or “our”) provides a software platform located at, and (including all applications, tools, information, content, materials, data, products and services made available on the Platform from time to time) (the “Platform”) to enable improved e-communication between health care providers, including optometrists, ophthalmologists, general practitioners, specialist support providers and other similar eye health providers who access and use the Platform (“Health Care Provider” or “you”).

The Platform aims to enable improved digital communication between Health Care Providers and to streamline the transfer and sharing of Health Care Provider and relevant patient information, including clinical notes and images, eye care records, referral and medical appointment details.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of those who use our Platform and our website at Oculo. This Privacy Notice (“Notice”) contains details about how Oculo collects, uses, and retains the Personal Data (defined below) of our Platform and website users that we obtain from and about you when you use our Platform and/or our website or otherwise interact with us for example by email or phone. Please read this Notice carefully.

This Notice is directed at Health Care Providers and other non-patient website visitors. It is not intended to provide patients with details of how we process Personal Data relating to them which is contained in the communications made between Health Care Providers via our Platform. As we do not have any direct relationship with these patients, it is the responsibility of our Health Care Providers, as the controllers of this data, to inform patients (where required by applicable privacy laws) about how their Personal Data will be processed on the Platform. To the extent HIPAA applies to any of the information we handle, such information is also not subject to this Notice and is instead governed by agreements we have with Health Care Providers.

Whenever you provide or access Personal Data about another individual (such as a patient or another Health Care Provider) whilst using the Platform or interacting with Oculo, you must ensure and you represent that you have any necessary consent or authorization for Oculo to use or share such information as described in this Notice. You shall have sole responsibility for any violation of privacy laws as a result of any failure to inform the other individual about how their Personal Data will be processed, or any failure to ensure that there is a lawful basis for the use of their Personal Data, such as obtaining the consent from the other individual.

Changes: Oculo may update this Notice from time to time by updating this page and so please check back periodically for updates. When required by applicable law, we will notify you of any changes to this Notice by providing an updated notice on this page.

EEA Data Protection Laws Section

Where EEA data protection laws apply to our processing of your Personal Data (for example, where your Personal Data is processed by our UK company), we are required to provide you with additional information, which is set out in this EEA Section. In the event of a conflict between information in this section and the rest of the Notice, this EEA Section will govern.

  • Legal Obligation – we process Personal Data to comply with applicable laws and regulations;
  • Performance of Agreement – we process Personal Data in order to perform or fulfill our obligations under our agreement with you;
  • Consent – we may process your Personal Data based on consent.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the information in the “Contact Us” Section above.

Further information about how we process your personal data is provided in the table at the end of this EEA Section.

International Transfers of Your Personal Data

Your Personal Data may be processed by Oculo affiliates or service providers located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), such as our Australian entity, CT Operations Pty Ltd for one or more of the purposes described in this Notice. Where your data is transferred outside the EEA, we will ensure that adequate safeguards are in place, such as:

(a) the transfer is to a country which is the subject of an adequacy-decision by the European Commission;

(b) the transfer is covered by a contractual agreement which has been approved by the European Commission as providing adequate safeguards for personal data transferred outside the EEA, such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses;

(c) the transfer is to an organisation in the US that is EU-US Privacy-Shield certified; or
 (d) an exemption applies, such as where the transfer is necessary to perform a contract with you (or concluded in your interests) or to take pre-contractual measures at your request.

International data transfers to our affiliates, subsidiaries and parent companies are governed by EU Standard Contractual Clauses.

Please contact if you want to receive further information or, where available, a copy of the relevant data transfer mechanism.

Your EEA Privacy Rights

  • Objection. Where we are processing your Personal Data on the basis of our legitimate interests, you can ask us to stop processing it and we must do so unless we believe we have an overriding legitimate reason to continue processing your Personal Data, or we need to process it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. In addition, you have the right to object at any time if your Personal Data is processed for direct marketing purposes.

  • Portability. You may receive Personal Data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit that data to others or to ask us to do this.

  • Right to lodge a complaint. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your data protection regulator and we will work with them to resolve it. In the UK, this is the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). You can make a complaint to the ICO by calling their helpline on 0303 123 1113 or on their website at We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the data protection regulator, and so please do contact us in the first instance.
