We may use your email address to send you information about products and services. In such a case you will be offered the option to opt in/out of these emails.
We may also share your personal information when we feel there’s a good reason that’s more important than protecting your privacy. It is unlikely, but possible that we may share your information:
in order to find and stop crime and fraud; or
if there are serious risks to the public, our staff or to other professionals.
For all of these reasons the risk must be serious before we can override your right to privacy.
If we’re worried about your physical safety or feel we need to take action to protect you from being harmed in other ways, we’ll discuss this with you and, if possible, get your permission to tell others about your situation before doing so. We may still share your information if we believe the risk to others is serious enough to do so.
How do we protect your information?
We’ll do what we can to make sure we hold records about you in a secure way, and we’ll only make them available to those who have a right to see them.
We only use what we need
We will only collect and use your personal information for specific reasons as listed above. If we need to retain your information for research or service planning reasons we will remove any information that identifies you personally.
How long we keep your personal information
Our services will need to retain your information for as long as we are working with you. Legislation tells us how long we need to keep some information.
