Privacy policy

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for www.networkedcaretoolkit.org.uk. It applies solely to this website.

The NHS is committed to respecting the privacy of individuals using this website. The only personal information collected by the site is your name and email address. This is to facilitate the “remember my username” function and to allow us to measure the value of toolkit. (See ‘cookies’ section below.) Some users may be contacted requesting feedback. We also analyse the server log files which contain details of the internet address (IP address) of computers using the site, pages looked at, the times of day and the type of web browser used. None of this information is linked to individuals.

Where users provide us with information, that information is treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.


What is a cookie?

Cookies are small computer files, typically containing letters and numbers, that are created through web browsers. Cookies are used as a form of digital memory to remember bits of information about a user’s visits to and use of web pages. They are mostly intended to enhance the user’s web experience by recording preferences and settings. However, they can also be used as ‘trackers’ to collect data about web sites and pages visited. This information may then be used to display web content and advertisements thought to be of most interest to the individual concerned. Advertising is not used on this website.

How we use cookies

This site does not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you. It does, however, use a cookie to store login information.   This cookie allows the ‘Remember my username’ option to function. If you wish to restrict or block cookies, you can do this through your browser settings. The help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer as well as more general information about cookies. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you will need to refer to the manufacturer, or you may find advice online.


Any information submitted through forms on this website is transferred to us by email, and will be dealt with by us in accordance with data protection legislation.

Emails are not encrypted before being sent to us and, as the internet is not always totally secure, users are sending the information at their own risk.

Notification of changes

Information about any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on this website.
