What information do we collect?
From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website. Such services include bulletins, information about events, PDF downloads and email updates. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete surveys and contact us forms or provide feedback.
How will we use the information we collect?
We collect information about you to help us deal with your requests and, if you agree, to email you with news, events and other updates we believe would be of interest to you based on the information we hold. By giving us your details you enable EMAHSN and our associated projects and programmes to provide you with the services you select. When you subscribe to a newsletter or complete a form you will have the chance to accept / “opt in” to what communications you would like. You can “opt out” or unsubscribe at any time by contacting us or updating your profile via newsletter or events invites.
Any information you provide to EMAHSN will only be used by us and our associated projects and programmes. Your details will not be disclosed unless we are obliged or permitted to by law to do so.
You can sign up to receive regular email news updates.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on www.emahsn.org.uk or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on www.emahsn.org.uk, we may use whatever information is available to us, about you, to stop such behaviour. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met or when you no longer wish to continue your subscription.
Accessing the information we hold about you
The Data Protection Act
Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We use leading technologies and encryption software to safeguard your data and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it.
We do not pass on your details to any third party or other government departments.
Changes to our policy
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss and alteration of information under our control.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
- Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
- Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast. You can manage these small files yourself through your browser setting
