This privacy statement only covers this website. It does not cover all sites that can be linked to from this site, so you should always be aware when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement on that site.
What information do we collect?
From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on this website. Such services include bulletins, email updates and website feedback.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Our People Your Future and its service providers to provide you with the services you select. Any information you provide to Our People Your Future will only be used by us, our agents and service providers and will not be disclosed unless we are obliged or permitted to by law to do so.
The Data Protection Act
Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We use leading technologies and encryption software to safeguard your data and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it.
We do not pass on your details to any third party or other government department.
Changes to our policy
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss and alteration of information under our control.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
What this privacy statement covers
This privacy statement only covers the processing of personal data by MSE that MSE has obtained from data subjects accessing MSE websites and from its provision of services and exercise of functions. It does not cover the processing of data by any sites that can be linked to or from MSE websites, so you should always be aware when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement on that website.
When providing MSE with any of your personal data for the first time, for example, when you register on My training Platform , you will be asked to confirm that you have read and accepted the terms of this privacy statement. A copy of your acknowledgement will be retained for reference.
Why MSE collects your personal data
Personal data may be collected from you via our training platform. Personal data may also be obtained by employing organisations in connection with the functions of my platform.
In connection with training, MSE collects and uses your personal information for the following purposes:
- To report on training completed or resources used via My Platform
- To quality assure training programmes and ensure that standards are maintained
- To identify workforce planning targets
- To maintain patient safety through the management of performance concerns
- To comply with legal and regulatory responsibilities including revalidation
- To contact you about training opportunities, events, surveys and information that may be of interest to you
How we protect your personal data
Our processing of all personal data complies with the General Data Protection Regulation principles.
The personal data we hold may be held as an electronic record on data systems managed by MSE or as a paper record. These records are only accessed, seen and used as required and/or permitted by law by staff who need access to personal data so they can do their jobs and other partner organisations within the Integrated Care System.
The security of the data is assured through the implementation of MSE’s policies on information governance management.
We make every effort to keep your personal information accurate and up to date, but in some cases we are reliant on you as the data subject to notify us of any necessary changes to your personal data. If you tell us of any changes in your circumstances, we can update the records with personal data you choose to share with us.
Sharing personal data
So we can provide the right services at the right level, we may share your personal data with other organisations within the MSE Partnership and with other third party organisations such as the Department of Health, Higher Education Institutions, NHS Trusts, clinical placement providers, colleges, faculties, other HEE local offices, the GMC, NHS Trusts/Health Boards/Health and Social Care Trusts, approved academic researchers and other NHS and government agencies where necessary, to provide the best possible training and education. This will be on a legitimate need to know basis only.
We may also share information, where necessary, to prevent, detect or assist in the investigation of fraud or criminal activity, to assist in the administration of justice, for the purposes of seeking legal advice or exercising or defending legal rights or as otherwise required by the law.
Where the data is used for analysis and publication by a recipient or third party, any publication will be on an anonymous basis, and will not make it possible to identify any individual. This will mean that the data ceases to become personal data.
