Website privacy and cookies
Privacy of your information on the Surrey Heartlands website
Surrey Heartlands uses personal and confidential information for several purposes. Our website privacy notice provides a summary of how we use your information.
This privacy statement only covers the Surrey Heartlands website (https://www.surreyheartlands.org). It does not cover all sites linked to this site, so you should always be aware when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement on that site.
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) to receive or use services on our website. Such services include newsletters and contacting Surrey Heartlands.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Surrey Heartlands and its service providers to provide you with your selected services. Any information you provide to Surrey Heartlands will only be used by us, our agents and service providers and will not be disclosed unless we are obliged or permitted by law to do so. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested and remove it if the purpose has been met or when you no longer wish to continue your subscription.
The Data Protection Act 2018
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 unauthorised access to it.
We do not pass on your details to any third party or another government department.
Changes to this statement
If this privacy statement changes, we will place an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing the page ensures you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we will share it with other parties.
This site has security measures to protect against the loss and alteration of the 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
