Privacy Policy

This page explains how Powys Teaching Health Board uses any information you give to us, and the ways in which we protect your privacy.

The Data Protection Act

Under the Data Protection Act we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We will only use your information for the purpose we have described and we do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so. We use leading technologies to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent unauthorised access to it.

Feedback and queries

You can send us your feedback in two ways; by sending an email to our administration team at Powys tHB or by using our online feedback form. If you give us contact details so that we can respond to your query then they will only be used for that purpose.

Site usage information


Cookies are pieces of data created when you visit a website. Our site uses cookies to store information while you move around the site. You can set your computer not to accept cookies. However, if you do this, you may not be able to use some site features because we need to record your preferences in order to give you the information you need during your visit.

Our cookies do not contain any personal information about you and do not hold any information about which sites you visited before you came here.

Log files and analytics

Log files allow us to record visitors' use of the site. They enable us to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around it.

Mailing lists

What data do we collect?

If you are included on any of our mailing lists we necessarily record your email address. We may also record other personally identifiable information if you choose to provide it. This information is only used for the purpose for which it has been provided and on a “need to know” basis.

For what purpose do we intend to use your personal information?

We will only use your personal information either keep in touch with you or to respond to a query or comment made by you. Your address will not be added to any other lists, shared with third parties (other than our contracted mailing list service provider) or used to send you unsolicited email.

Links to external sites

Like most sites, the tHBs website contains links to external sites. It should be noted that this privacy policy can apply only to this site and that we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other websites.

We do not pass on any personal information you have given us to any other website.

Changes to this privacy policy

If this privacy policy changes we will publish an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing this page ensures you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we will share it with other parties.
