We believe your right to confidentiality when using the UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network is very important. This means that only in very unusual circumstances would it be necessary for us to contact police or other agencies about any message we have received.
Legal requirements related to confidentiality
Under UK law, the UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network cannot legally provide confidentiality under the following circumstances:
1. A message sent to or through the UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network (including discussion forum posts) contains specific information about a terrorist suspect or terrorist activity that will take place or has taken place in the world. This information must immediately be disclosed to the police;
2. The UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network is forced through legal action to disclose specific confidential information; this can include legal action taken through the Data Protection Act and during criminal investigations.
Our choice to break confidentiality
Under the Data Protection Act we can choose to break confidentiality if we feel that doing so would be in the public interest or that not doing so would hinder a criminal investigation. Under very rare, extreme circumstances, we may choose to break confidentiality.
These circumstances are:
If we believe a user of the UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network is in immediate and great danger, or a user of the UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network is about to place another person in immediate and great danger.
That the user has provided enough personal information for us to believe there is an opportunity to intervene.
We wouldn’t even think of trying to intervene if the circumstances were not extreme.
Our address is UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network c/o Together 4 Change, Suite 223, 266 Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 7DL, United Kingdom.
