By using this website you will accept this Privacy Policy and any amendments which we may make to it from time to time.

NHCT is a charity and comes within a specific exemption in the Data Protection Act meaning it need not register with the Information Commissioner. However, any personal data which we collect from you will still be processed in accordance with the Data Protection principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the terms of the relevant exemption. If you have any questions about this, please contact the person whose details appear at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.
