CDEP appreciates that your privacy is of utmost importance and that you are concerned about the way your information is used and shared. We respect and value all CDEP users’ privacy and only collect and use information that is useful to improving the learning opportunity offered to you, and in a manner consistent with your rights and our obligations under the law.

Your data will be used for the purposes of managing CDEP (i.e. providing you with secure access to CDEP’s online diabetes education platform to complete your e-learning topics and access your reports, certificates and reflection documents).
Access to your CDEP account is password protected and passwords are account specific.
On request, we will share aggregate staffing cohort data with an organisation or wider commissioning bodies such as the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) or Clinical Networks, provided they have purchased bulk CDEP licences in order to monitor uptake and utilisation of CDEP within their region so as to support equality in diabetes education opportunities as well as target local diabetes education and training strategies. We also publish aggregated, anonymised data for audit and research purposes.
If you have given your consent for us to do so, CDEP will share your name and associated high-level training activity (topics started, topics completed and topic feedback) with your employing organisation for the purpose of updating local staff training records and supporting your role development. Your consent to do so is requested as part of the registration process and can be amended at any time via your CDEP account profile.
CDEP will, from time to time, contact you (via email) to invite you back to complete training you ahve alreayd started or to inform you of any new content or additions to the diabetes learning opportunities CDEP offers you. You may opt-out of these emails at any time.
CDEP has appropriate organisational and technical measures in place to look after your personal data and we will not keep it for any longer than is necessary.
