Privacy notice - Adult Social Care: your information and you

How will your information be used?

We hold your information so that we can provide services that you require and keep in touch with you. We also use it to plan and improve our services and to look into any concerns you may have about the services you receive. We need to do this either because we have statutory duties to fulfil, or because we are required to undertake certain tasks for reasons of public interest.

We aim to maintain high standards, adopt best practice for our record keeping and regularly check and report on how we are doing. Your information is never sold for direct marketing purposes.

We have strict controls on who can see your paper or electronic records. Nobody is allowed to see your information unless they have a valid reason and appropriate authorisation. Only people who need to know information about you, such as your social worker, therapist, support staff or other people involved in providing services to you, have access to our databases.

Your information is not processed outside the EEA (European Economic Area).

Our staff are trained to handle your information correctly and protect your confidentiality and privacy.

All information is held securely in accordance with our Data Protection & Information Security Policy.
