Our Commitment To Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information

practices and the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available from most

pages of our site and on our registration page.


The Information We Collect:


This notice applies to all personal information collected or submitted on the Private Health Visitor website. In order to use some of the features on the Private Health Visitor site you are asked to register as a member. The personal information collected at registration is:


  • Name
  • Postcode
  • Email address
  • Where you heard about

If you use our community parent chat service we will collect details of posts and private messages exchanged with parent supporters for quality control and protection of individuals.


Use and storage of your personal information


When you supply any personal information to Private Health Visitor (e.g. for registrations, comments, community services etc.) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.

In general, any personal information you provide to Private Health Visitor will only be used within Private Health Visitor. It will never be supplied to anyone outside Private Health Visitor without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it, or to for example to safeguard the welfare of our members and their families.

If you use our community parent supporter service we may use the information you post and the responses to compile aggregate statistics (e.g. number of registered members, number of individuals addressing specific issues, etc.), to assist us in research and development to supply to our partners.  In these cases, all information will be completely anonymous.

We publish a newsletter and occasionally operate on line surveys. We will never sell our members e-mail addresses.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy


Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 16, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 16.
