Information we may collect
You can leave feedback on some pages of the website or on a user survey. You can choose to share your email address if you want a reply. Otherwise, we collect and store feedback anonymously
The law says that we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary to make our website work. For all other types of cookies we need your permission before we can use them on your device.
We like to use analytics cookies which measure how you use our website and help us improve our service for future users but we only use these cookies if you say it's OK.
Keeping your personal data secure
We convert your data into secure code (encrypt it) and store it on secure servers in England. A partner organisation is providing hosting services but has no say in how the information is used. There are no legal ways for their employees to see the data. Only approved people in the NHS digital service manual team can see it.
If you shared your email with us as part of a survey, we will delete it after 2 years. At that point no one can identify you in the survey data.
NHS Digital may share anonymous information on how the service is used with the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), and the National Clinical Governance Group.
When you give us personal information, we may pass it on if the law says we must.
If you make a claim against us, we and other third parties such as our solicitors may need to look at this information.
We will not share your personal information with anyone else without your permission for any other reason.
- find out what information we hold about you, ask us to correct it if it's wrong, or delete it by emailing email@example.com
- contact the Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AF if you want to make a complaint about how we have managed your data
