The Data Protection Act 1998 means that we must have your consent for us to hold your details, and those of your organisation, on our databases. We are required to tell you how we use these details.
CareData uses the information you give us to provide a local community, care and health information service to the general public.
The information on the Grampian CareData database is:
- Published on our web site
- Made available to non-commercial organisations to assist in the compilation of directories, for example the Carers Resource Book
Only the information provided by your organisation is published. Your contact details, as Information Provider, are held independently on an administrative database which is only used internally and is not distributed.
If there are any details which you prefer not to be made available to the general public but which may be held by us in the office, please call us on 01651 872727 to discuss this further.
We would like to keep information about you and your organisation on CareData but in compliance with the Act we will remove any details from our databases at your written request.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 you must ensure that individuals whose personal details have been included as part of your organisation's record of information, have consented to this information being made public and are aware that it may be published on the Internet. This includes home addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses, where provided.
