My Life Digital

Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our service users.

Our Privacy Policy explains how we will protect your personal information and data, and the unique control MyLife Digital provides to your data. This includes understanding, at all times, precisely what data we are storing for and about you, who (if anyone) can see that data, and whether you give permission for that data to be shared with third-parties. We will never share your data with third-parties for marketing purposes.

At MyLife Digital we believe that transparency practices need to be reframed to be more meaningful, actionable and relevant for individuals.

Greater emphasis is needed on presenting individuals with understandable and relevant information on how data is being used. Organisations need to simplify the way in which they communicate their data practices to reduce the complexity of transparency for individuals.

Also needed are policies and tools to understand how data flows “out the back door” of institutions. The transfer of data throughout the ecosystem is complex, opaque and drives uncertainty and suspicion. We have designed the MyLife Digital Consentric Platform to put users in full control of all of their data. View our full Privacy Policy by clicking on the icon below:

Cookie Policy

Our website uses cookies.

Cookies are small files that are sent to your web browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. The file contains an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser.

This identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies are important for the intended functionality of a website. To improve your experience during a visit, we use cookies to remember log-in details and provide secure log-in, collect statistics to optimise website functions, and deliver content specific to your interests. Most websites use cookies for these purposes.

Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

We use both session and persistent cookies on our website.

They cannot be used to identify you.

There are two specific types of cookie we use on our website:

  • Session Variables – ‘session cookies’ are temporary cookies that remain in your browser until you leave the website. These allow you to carry information across our site without having to re-enter it; it also enables us to analyse web traffic and improve our online services.
  • Tracking Cookies– this is another very common type of cookie. We use these to help us track how many people visit our website, what pages they look at and how often they come back. When you visit our website we automatically check to see whether this cookie is in your browser, if it is present we know you have visited us before. This helps us identify between unique new visitors and returning visitors.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that will personally identify you, but personal information that we store about you from other means may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

Our cookies do not analyse visits to other websites or track any Internet searches undertaken whilst you still have a window with our website open.

You may set your web browser to notify you of cookie placement requests or to decline cookies completely. You can delete the files that contain cookies; those files are stored as part of your Internet browser.
