MedicalPrices.co.uk is a free to use website and there is no obligation to register and/or enter any personal details to use it. It is intended for a UK audience, but all information is offered free of charge for anyone to access.
However, we do actively and passively collect and process data, which we feel you should be aware of. All website pages and data are sent using secure SSL technology.
All our data processing activities are done on a legitimate interest basis for the following reason:
- We only use the data we process for its intended purpose and not for other marketing activities.
- We primarily process information about UK businesses not individuals.
- The only data we actively collect is required to help fulfil users’ requests (more below)
MedicalPrices.co.uk processes several types of data for several different purposes, using several third-party partners and platforms.
Active Data Processing Activities
Our primary data processing activity is helping businesses compare franking machine prices via a free, no obligation quote service. It is intended to be used only by businesses that are already trading and/or about to imminently start trading and not by individuals.
Please also be aware, MedicalPrices.co.uk does not provide quotes itself but has instead partnered with Marketing VF Ltd (trading as Inspire Digital) to provide the quotes. They in turn work directly with the UK’s leading franking machine companies.
Therefore, we act as both a data controller (since we send them data) and data processor (since they inform use what data they need and then decide how to process it). All data we collect on their behalf is required to help filter suppliers that may be right for you. If you would prefer not share certain information, you are free to do so and can still find generic pricing information on each page.
Passive Data Processing Activities
We use the following third-party tools to help us run a useable website. They do not share any personal information about you with us, but they may still collect information about you and your computer that may be considered personal information.
Below we outline what we use each of them for and where you can find out more about how they may collect and use personal data:

Facebook Social Graph This is used to help make it easier to share content from our website and blog on Facebook. We do not use it for any remarketing or retargeting. See Facebook’s Data Page for more on how they use your data.
Pintrest: We use this to help make it easier to share our content on Pintrest. You can manage your data setting with them here.
External / Affiliate Links: We sometimes track external links either via Google Analytics and/or third-party affiliate tracking platforms. Any sort of tracking only occurs if you click on an external link. At the bottom of every page where this occurs we disclose which links are affiliate links, but if you’re concerned about this, the simplest option is to not click on external links from our website.
