What information we collect

Some of the forms on our website collect personal information from you. We are asking you to “opt-in” before giving us any personal details, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you don’t want to share any information, there are other ways you can get in touch, for example by phone and email.

Any information you do submit will be kept in the strictest confidence and will never be passed on to a third party, unless we have your consent, or there is a legal obligation to do so.

Our website uses cookies to help us monitor site usage, for example pages looked at and the type of browser used. Cookies are not used to identify you as an individual.

How long will we keep your data

We will keep your data for varying amounts of time depending on the nature of the interaction with our services. We only store data that is necessary for a specific purpose.  We will not store your data for longer than is necessary, unless we are legally obligated to do so by contract or other legal requirement as a public body. Your data will be securely deleted when no longer needed for the purpose(s) for which it was collected.

Your personal information

You have the ‘right of access by the data subject’ under the GDPR and may request details of personal data which we hold about you.

If you would like to request a copy of your personal data or if you have any questions about our privacy policy, please contact R&DComms@gstt.nhs.uk.
