Privacy

The Terrence Higgins Trust are the Data Controllers for this website under the Data Protection Act 1998. We will process your data in accordance with the Data Protection Act. The purpose of the privacy policy is to inform you as a user of the site about what information we collect when you visit the site, how we use the information, whether the information is disclosed and the ways in which we protect users' privacy.

 


Information we collect when you visit ‘Areyougetting.com’

We collect information indirectly and directly. When you access www.areyougettingit.com we use technology to collect information indirectly such as your internet address which is then kept in our internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways. One way is through the use of cookies. Cookies are small files of information which save and retrieve information about your visit to our site - for example, how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site, and what information was of interest to you. The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. (If you are uncomfortable regarding cookies use, please keep in mind you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in preferences or options menu in your browser.)

We also collect information when you give it to us. For example we collect information about the number of people who have visited/used the website. 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 this information?

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 public authority we do not share data with other organisations unless the law permits or requires 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.
Public Health England (PHE) count how many people have chlamydia; we will send them details of the results of your test but not your name or address.

 

You can have 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.

You can do this by contacting us at The Terrence Higgins Trust Norfolk, 15 Hooper Lane, Norwich, NR3 4ED.

 

Your data is kept under secure conditions

We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on our website. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that, in the ordinary way, 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 when people access www.areyougettingit.com and we take measures to ensure that it does not.
