DigiBete cares about the security of your information and uses commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through the website. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, DigiBete will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
This privacy notice tells you what personal information we collect and what we do with it. It applies to everyone who uses our Platform.
We ask for certain information such as your name, and e-mail address when you ‘get in touch’ with us through the website. All personal information of this nature when provided by you will not be disclosed by DigiBete to any third party without your permission. DigiBete may provide general statistical information to third parties, but such information will not allow anyone to be personally identified. We may also retain any messages you send through the website form.
If you are not happy for your information to be used in the way described, and would like to withdraw your consent to process data, you should stop using the DigIBete App and contact us by emailing email@example.com or completing the enquiry form on our website at https://www.digibete.org/contact-us/. We will delete your data and revoke app access within 30 days of notice being given.
We also have a specific Children’s Code Policy which explains how we conform to the code and demonstrates that our services use children’s data fairly and in compliance with data protection law. The code is a set of 15 flexible standards that provides built-in protection to allow children to explore, learn and play online by ensuring that the best interests of the child are the primary consideration when designing and developing online services.
We are required by law to tell you the legal basis that we are using for processing and using your data. These are GDPR articles 6 (1) (b) and 9 (2) (a):
UK GDPR Article 6 (1) (b):
“processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party…”.
UK GDPR Article 9 (2) (a):
“the data subject has given explicit consent to the processing of those personal data for one or more specified purposes”.
Sometimes we may be required to share information with regulators like the Care Quality Commission, the General Medical Council, NHS Digital, the Information Commissioner’s Office and the Health Service Ombudsman and in such circumstances we will rely on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR: “processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject”.
We may share information with bodies with public health responsibilities such as local councils and Public Health England to control infectious diseases such as meningitis, tuberculosis (TB) or measles and manage public health incidents.
Consent can be withdrawn at any time either by using the Contact Us functionality within the DigiBete App or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the use of your data, please use the enquiry form on our website at https://digibete.org/contact-us/.

When you access the website by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier (“UUID”). Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by DIGIBETE. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the website. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the website. Some features of the website may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
When you access the website by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device.
