Where we store your personal data
The TakeATestUK website (‘our website’) utilises high-level SSL security technology in order to ensure that the ‘live’ data you enter is safe. Once you have submitted your data via the TakeATestUK order form, this is transferred in an encrypted form to our test distributor in such a way that they have no way to store your data once they have dispatched the test. Your data is otherwise stored on highly-encrypted N3 servers within the NHS. It is given the same level of security as patient records, and will only be used by clinical professionals in order to communicate your results to you.
Demographic information may also be utilised by clinicians as part of research projects, but this will be done anonymously.
By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
Our Senior Information Risk Officer is the Saving Lives Director of Operations, Dan Hartland. Our Caldicott Guardian is Saving Lives’s Medical Director, Dr Steve Taylor. You may write to either of these individuals at Saving Lives, MIDRU Building, Heartlands Hospital, Bordesley Green East, B9 5SS.
Though we take every step to maintain security, and offer encryption of NHS standard, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting our Logistics Manager, Cynthia D’Aguilar, on email@example.com.
