We want you to feel secure when visiting the site. We are committed to respecting your privacy. Below we give an overview of how we do that.
Information we collect when you visit
We collect information indirectly and directly. When you access www.eastamb.nhs.uk, we use technology to collect information indirectly, such as your Internet address, which is then kept in our Internet access logs.
We also collect information when you give it to us. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether you provide it.
How we use this information?
We analyse it to see what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.
Will we disclose your information to or share it with other organisations?
As a government department, we do not share data with other organisations unless the law permits us to do so. We do not sell individual information. We will share it only with our authorised Data Processors, who must act at all times on our instructions as the Data Controller under the Data Protection Act 1998. Before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is up to you whether you provide it.
We may give you access to your information
You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your data is kept under secure conditions?
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on our website. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we employ security measures to protect the information provided by you, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate security procedures and features aimed at preventing any unauthorised access, unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage.
