Privacy Policy

Who we are
At the South East Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Force, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that we are not in the business of selling, renting or trading information with other companies and businesses. We aim to collect the minimum of information to allow the effective operation of the website. In this Privacy Policy, we’ve information on when and why we collect personal information, how we use it, and how we keep it secure.

Types of data we collect – 
Google Analytics (and similar)
Many sites use tools to monitor and measure traffic to their web sites. Whilst these are largely considered safe, some data is transferred to third parties for analysis. For this reason, the SERDATF web site does not use these types of analytics.

Our website has been scanned by “Cookiebot” in October 2018, which determined that the site uses three cookies and that these were essential for the basic functions of the web site such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website (report available on request). These cookies expire at the end of each session.

Members Lists
As part of the registration process for SERDATF members to access parts of the web site, we collect personal information. We use that information to allow access to elements of the web site that are not open to the public, and to provide information about the members of the SERDATF to the public. SERDATF members have consented to have their information on this web site, and can request that it be removed at any time. Members (when logged in) can also view, amend or delete their information, or can request that this be done for them.

Third Parties
The very limited information we collect is only used by us, as we have explained and we do not share it with any outside parties.

Access to your personal information
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to Chris Purnell (
