Privacy

Website privacy statement

University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust (UHSussex) is committed to protecting your privacy, in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation and will not use any information we may hold about you for any purpose other than that for which it was collected.

UHSussex does not automatically capture or store personal information through our websites. Under no circumstances is your data used for anything other than the purpose for which it has been collected.

This privacy policy only covers uhsussex.nhs.uk. Other sites will have their own privacy policies and we cannot be held responsible or liable for how they may use your data.

At certain times you may be asked to fill in information about yourself on the site, e.g. when filling in a form. This information will only be used for the purpose stated in each case. UHSussex will not distribute personal information collected in this way to any third party, other than in limited cases where it is bound by law to do so.

UHSussex may analyse statistical trends based on responses to forms etc. to help to improve services; however, this analysis will not include identifiable personal information.

Although we will always treat the information you provide with the strictest confidence, we cannot guarantee the security of the World Wide Web. It is possible, though very unlikely, that someone other than UHSussex could access and read information sent to us in this way. If you feel concerned about this, please use another form of contact, e.g. telephone or post.

Cookies

We use cookies to help understand how people use this website and to enhance their experience of it by, for example, capturing which pages are most popular, how long people spend on each page and what links they use to access the information they are seeking.

UHSussex may also use cookies to enable the website to ‘remember’ details that you voluntarily give, such as when you complete online forms, so that you do not have to repeat the information next time you use the website.

On occasion we may embed content from another website, for example a YouTube video. Using a page with such content you may be presented with cookies from the third-party website. UHSussex does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the third-party websites for more information about these.

You can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, or you can set it to automatically reject them. Rejecting cookies may inconvenience you in browsing our website.
