Privacy policy

We, the Scottish Drug Deaths Taskforce, are committed to safeguarding your privacy and ensuring that you continue to trust us with your personal information (“personal data”).


When delivering services over the internet, it is common practice to store small amounts of information on your computer or phone.  This information is stored by your web browser in small files called cookies. Cookies serve a number of possible purposes:

  • to speed up websites by avoiding sending the same information every time;
  • to measure general usage of the website to help us improve; and
  • to recognise returning visitors so we can highlight new/changed information since your last visit.

You can block/remove cookies using your browser.

There are two main types of cookies, first party and third party.

First party cookies: these are our own cookies, controlled directly by us and used to provide information about general usage of our website.

Third party cookies: these are cookies used by other companies’ tools which we are using to enhance our site, for example Google Analytics and Facebook Like buttons have their own cookies, which are controlled by them.

Changes to our privacy policy:

We keep our privacy policy under regular review and we will place any updates on our website.
