More about how we ensure your privacy
Privacy and data security are of critical importance to Our Future Health. Information that is shared by people who join the programme will be stored securely and used to understand health and disease. Nothing else.
As a registered UK charity, Our Future Health is responsible for keeping all the information you share with us safe and secure. We have strict rules and processes that control who has access to the data you provide.
Our Future Health will make data available for research within trusted research environments (TREs), a type of secure data environment. Giving researchers access to data in this way is in line with best practice.
