The information provided on this site is for the benefit of people with dementia, carers, health and social care professionals and others with an interest in dementia. The NDAA is an independent network where members commit to actions and learn about the latest trends from across health and social care. We support members to work in partnership and adopt new practices that improve health and social care outcomes of people living with dementia.
To do this, we need to collect and use information about individual members, and those we have contact with. We will only use any personal information you send us for the purposes for which you provide it. For example, we collect your information, where you choose to provide it to us, for membership administration and development of the site, development of products and services or to receive our monthly newsletters.
- Sometimes, other members will request to make contact with you. We will approach you first in this instance, and we will not share any information without your consent.
- We will process your personal information in accordance with the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 and other relevant legislation, and commit to keeping your personal data secure.
- The data controller as defined by the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 is Alzheimer’s Society. The NDAA is legally part of Alzheimer’s Society. It is not an independent legal entity. Legal responsibility for the operations of the NDAA sits with the Board of Trustees of Alzheimer’s Society. The day to day running of the NDAA has been delegated by the Trustees of Alzheimer’s Society to the NDAA Secretariat.
- You are welcome to access our site without disclosing your personal data.
We will not keep your personal information for longer than necessary and will not sell it to any other parties. All employees who have access to your personal data and are associated with the handling of that data are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your personal data.
National Dementia Action Alliance tries to keep the information we have about you accurate and up to date. If you find errors or inaccuracies in your data, we will erase, complete or amend that information upon request.
You can ask us whether we are keeping personal data about you by contacting us at NDAA Secretariat, c/o Alzheimer’s Society, 43-44 Crutched Friars, London EC3N 2AE or by emailing NDAA@alzheimers.org.uk.
You can make a subject access request about the data we hold on you. Before we can respond to your request we require proof of identification e.g. a copy of a valid passport or a valid UK driving licence. Once we have received this along with full details of your request we aim to respond as soon as possible in a maximum of 1 month (as permitted be the law).
