This page explains how the Basildon Healthcare Library uses any information you give to us, and the way we protect your privacy. Protecting the privacy and personal data of the visitors to our site is of the utmost importance to us.
In accordance with the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We will only use your information for the purpose as described and we do not pass on your details to any other government department or third party unless you have given us permission to do so. You have a right to access your personal data and rectify any inaccuracies. We are committed to safeguarding your information. The information you supply will be used to contact you about services or resources you have requested from the Library and Knowledge Service (LKS). We will share your information with the organisations that supply and manage our library management systems. We may share your information with another LKS team if you move organisations (you will receive an email notification if this happens). You may log in to our library management system (using your Library UserID and PIN) to see the data we hold about you. You can request changes by emailing us.
Deleting your personal information We will delete the data we hold on you after a maximum 5-year period of inactivity (in case you return to use NHS library and knowledge services again within this time).
We use a cookie to hold your session preference for text size, but this holds no personal information.
This privacy statement only covers the Basildon and Thurrock website. It does not cover links within this site to other websites.
