We want you to feel secure when visiting this website. We are committed to respecting your privacy. Below we give an overview of how we do that.
Information we collect
We collect information indirectly and directly.
We also collect information when you give it to us on registering for Change4Life. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
How do we use the information collected by cookies?
We analyse it to see what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.
Will we disclose your information to or share it with other organisations?
As a Government Department we do not share data with other organisations unless the law permits us to do so. We do not sell individual information. We will share it only with our authorised Data Processors who must act at all times on our instructions as the Data Controller under the Data Protection Act 1998. Before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
We may give you access to your information
You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate.

Your data is kept under secure conditions
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on our websites. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Our intention is that this should not happen and we take measures to ensure that it does not.
