All information that you give us is confidential and we will not tell anyone else about your personal information. However, there are some exceptional circumstances where we would need to share your information to keep you safe. For example if it:
• is felt to be in your or the public’s best interest (child or adult safeguarding concerns)
• is required by the police
• could prevent a serious crime (e.g. terrorism).
