Privacy policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy.  You may be asked to submit personal information about yourself in order to receive information or use services on our website.  If you provide information to us, we will treat that information in accordance with this privacy policy.  By submitting personal information to us, you are agreeing to use of this information by us as described in this policy.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been fulfilled or, if you no longer wish to continue being registered for our services.

We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, and otherwise in accordance with Data Protection legislation.


Typically, identifying information is collected in relation to:

  • Registration on the mailing list
  • Registration to certain areas of the website
  • To allow us to consider your comments, queries and suggestions and respond if necessary
  • To allow us to respond to your enquiries for further information
  • To distribute requested materials

Identifying information may be voluntarily provided in relation to shared experiences of recovery. This process is governed separately. Click here to read more.

The type of personal information collected on the website could include your name, company name, address (including postcode), email address, telephone number (including mobile), user name and password.

Sometimes, we may ask questions where you are not personally identifiable from your response although we may post responses on the website. These instances will be highlighted to you but in all other instances, you should assume that we track any information you provide on a personally identifiable basis.


If you register with the SRN mailing list, you will  receive information and updates on our work. We use return email addresses to answer any emails that we receive, and we may use return email addresses to send to other information that you may request. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose.

We may use information that you provide to better design the website and to improve our strategy and products. We collect IP addresses.  An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from this website, our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us.

By using the website, you consent to the collection and use of this information by SRN.


Because we want your experience of the website to be as informative and useful as possible, we provide a number of links to third party websites. Always be aware of where you end up. Third party websites may send their own cookies to users, or otherwise collect data or solicit personal information. We assume no responsibility for the information gathering practices of websites that you are able to access through ours, and we encourage you to review each website’s privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.


We take reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.

We reserve the right to change or remove this Privacy Policy at our discretion. We encourage you to visit this area frequently so as to stay informed. If there is any material change in the type of personal information we collect, we will obtain your permission before we attempt to collect the additional information. We will not make any changes that allow us to give personal information to any other person without obtaining permission from you first.
