Privacy Policy – your data

GDPR – your data

How we manage your data

The data protection law changed in May 2018. A new law, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into force to protect your data. 

Data Protection legislation requires that data controllers (NUH in this case) provide certain information to people whose information (personal data) they hold and use. A privacy notice is one way of providing this information. 

The information in this section of our website, and in the pages shown in the menu to the left,  explains why we collect data about you, and how it is used and stored.

You can learn all about how the trust collects and uses data in general here Privacy Notice | NUH

Data and the HFEA

As a centre regulated by the fertility regulators, the HFEA, NUH Life must comply with their requirements for the handling of patient data. Therefore, although, in general no patient records leave the centre, the following are recorded routinely by the HFEA:

  • Gamete (sperm) donor identity and characteristics
  • Treatment cycles using donor sperm
  • IVF treatment cycles
