Privacy and Terms


A cookie is a small text file which is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. The data that they hold means that, if you keep coming back to a site, the site is able to deliver a page tailored to you, remember who you are on any forms and, in general, allows you to pick up where you left off.

Cookies used on the STP’s website don’t store or collect any personal data about website visitors. What we do use them for, however, is to help us use Google Analytics to improve our content. Google Analytics lets us do some basic analysis of how our website is used – the length of each visit, which pages generate the most activity, what links are clicked on, and so on – and will help us make our website even better.

We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this and we will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

You are, of course, very welcome to disable cookies on our site. Have a look in your browser settings and you should be able to turn them off. We won't know and we won’t hold it against you. For more information on enabling and disabling cookies please visit About Cookies.

Freedom of information

Our host organisation is South Eastern Hampshire CCG. Please click here for information on how they handle freedom of information requests.

Intellectual property

As we’re made up of lots of organisations, we’ve used their names, images, logos and descriptions. They are all property of the NHS or various local authorities. If you want to copy any of the logos, you’ll need to ask them directly.

Our links

We have a lot of links on our site and we hope you have found them to be helpful. We’re not responsible for any content on any external site, linking to a site or organisation doesn’t mean we endorse any of their content or views and we’re sorry if any of the links are broken. That last bit is probably our fault.

Privacy statement

There are a small number of sections on the Hampshire and Isle of Wight STP website where you can, if you’d like, submit information to us. The best example is the way in which you can send in some feedback to us.

When you submit information, you consent to us collecting, processing and storing it for that specific purpose. Under the Data Protection Act, we have a duty to protect any information you provide us with, therefore we won’t pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so (and we’ll make that clear on our website if we do ask for permission).

Virus protection

Although we make every effort to check and test our material, particularly documents and files that are stored on our website’s servers, we can’t accept any responsibility for loss, damage, disruption or other issues affecting your computer or mobile device if you use our website or download anything from it. We recommend scanning any files that you download from the internet with an anti-virus programme

Website availability

We can’t guarantee that this website will be available at all times and we are sorry if you wanted to use it and it was broken. We accept no responsibility for any damages arising from the loss of access to this information.
