Our Privacy Policy applies to the Devon Partnership NHS Trust (the Trust) website only.  Links within this site to other websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy. 

Information collection and use


The Trust does not store or collect any personal information about site users. The system will record your email address and other information if volunteered to us by you. This information shall be treated as confidential. It may only be used for internal review and to contact you regarding any feedback.

The Data Protection Act


Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect. We will only use your information for the purpose we have described and we do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so. We use leading technologies to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it.

Feedback


You can send us your feedback, comment on policies, strategies or other issues relating to the Trust by contacting us. If you send an e-mail or contact us asking for information, we may need to contact other NHS departments or external organisations to find that information. 
If your question is technical, we may need to pass it to our IT Department.

Site usage information


Session cookies

Cookies are pieces of data created when you visit a website. The cookies our website uses are "session cookies", which means that your "preferences" are stored temporarily while you move around the site. You can set your computer not to accept cookies. However, if you do this, you may not be able to use some site features because we need to record your preferences in order to give you the information you need during your visit.
 
Session cookies are deleted when you leave the site. They do not contain any personal information about you, and do not hold any information about which sites you visited before the Trust's.

Log files


Log files allow us to record visitors' use of the site. They enable us to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around it.
 
Log files do not contain any personal information or information about which other sites you have visited. 

What happens when I move to another site?


The Trust's website contains links to other websites, which include those of NHS and government departments and of other organisations. This privacy policy applies only to our site, so you should always be aware when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement of any site which collects personal information.

We do not pass on any personal information you have given us to any other site.

Changes to this privacy policy


If this privacy policy changes in any way, we will place an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing this page ensures you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we will share it with other parties.
