Privacy notice

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR will soon replace current data privacy law, giving more rights to individuals and more obligations to organisations holding personal data. 

One of these rights is a right to be informed. This means we need to give you even more information than we do now about the way in which we use, share and store your personal information.

To do this, we'll be publishing a new privacy notice so you can access this information, along with information about the increased rights you have in relation to the information we hold on you and the legal basis on which we are using it.

The GDPR comes into force on 25 May 2018.

Anonymised consultation responses may be published on the NICE website or passed to third parties approved by NICE.

Personal data used for maintaining our mailing lists for the distribution of newsletters may be passed to data processors or other third parties approved or contracted by NICE to enable us to maintain these services.
