Your confidentiality

Confidentiality

The information given to us is often sensitive, which is not already lawfully in the public domain or which has been shared in a relationship where the person giving the information understood that it would not be shared with others.

Legally, where there is a confidential relationship, anyone receiving confidential information is under a duty not to pass it on.

Exceptions

We can however share information without breaching this duty if:

  • the information is not confidential in nature
  • the person to whom the duty is owed has given explicit consent
  • there is an overriding public interest in disclosure
  • sharing is required by a court order or other legal obligation

For more information about how we use information please see our privacy notice
