Links to external websites

We add links from our site into other websites to help you find more information related to our services. However NHS Greenwich cannot be held responsible for the content of any external site linked to from within this site.

This is because we:

  • do not produce them or maintain and update them

Privacy statement

Your privacy is paramount and as such, NHS Greenwich is committed to protecting your privacy online. We will treat any personal information by which you can be identified (i.e. name, address, email and the like) in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act of 1998.

We will not sell, trade or rent your information to other third parties.

We will not collect any personal information without your knowledge. This information will be collected for a known purpose that you understand and will not be used in future for any other reason other than the one it is being collected for in the first instance.

The collection of information is for the purpose of communicating with you in regards to an online query and/or your benefiting from our online transactional services.

This information is collected by you filling out an electronic form. A browser's mechanism called cookies may be used in some cases for the users' convenience but our cookies will not store or retrieve personal information. These cookies are not more than lines of words within a plain text file left by the browser and can be monitored by the users to verify the kind of information stored in them (if you are looking for this, please find cookies.txt in your machine or a directory called cookies). Apart from this, users can set up their browsers not to allow cookies being stored in their machines (but this is not advisable as it will prevent many transactional websites from operating properly).

Your trust in NHS Greenwich's online system is pivotal to our success and we would welcome any comments, doubts or suggestions that you may have. Please email us at info@greenwichgetactive.com if you wish to submit comments.

Cookies and Website Traffic Analysis

When users enter the Greenwich Get Active website their computers will automatically be issued with 'cookies'. Cookies are text files which identify users' computers. The website then creates "session" cookies to store some of the preferences of users moving around the website, e.g. retaining a text-only preference. Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used and they are deleted on departure from the website.

Many websites do this to track traffic flows, whenever users visit those websites.

The Greenwich Get Active website uses third-party cookies to measure use of the website including number of visitors, how frequently pages are viewed, and the city and country of origin of users. This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. For this purpose, we use Google Analytics to measure and analyse usage of the website. The information collected will include IP Address, pages visited, browser type and operating system. The data will not be used to identify any user personally.

Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.

Log files

Log files stored on our web server allow the recording and analysis of users' use of the website. Log files do not contain any personal information.
