It is possible to use almost all aspects of this site without disclosing personal information. However where information is provided to this site by users it will be treated in confidence and under no circumstances will the NNEF sell, trade or otherwise disclose your details to third parties unless required to do so by law.

Where the provision of personal data is required to enable us to provide a specific service (eg Membership of the NNEF) to the user the details collected will only be used for the stated purpose.

Mailing/Membership List

The NNEF uses an external service to manage the members newsletter mailing list for this site. This list is kept solely for the purpose of keeping you updated with what happens on this website and to act as a list of members for the purpose of running the NNEF. The personal data collected for this list will also be treated in confidence and under no circumstances will the NNEF sell, trade or otherwise disclose your details to third parties unless required to do so by law. Please note the 3rd Party service we use to manage the Membership List is Mailchimp.com who also have their own privacy policy.

On May 26th 2011 a new EU originated law came into effect that requires website owners to make significant changes to their sites and may fundamentally change the whole web browsing experience for everybody.This Cookie Law is amended privacy legislation that requires websites to obtain informed consent from visitors before they can store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device. If you want to find out more about these law changes we recomend visiting ‘The Cookie Collective‘.

What do cookies do

  • Cookies do allow us to remember you, your preferences and information about your visit when you browse the site.
  • Cookies set by this site do not contain personally indentifiable information.
  • Cookies belong to specific websites and can not be viewed by other websites.
  • Cookies do not allow us to access your computer or view your other data.

Third party cookies

Although it is the case that cookies can only be set by a domain (eg. naloxone.org.uk) you visit, when you visit a website you will usually see content from many different domains and these providers can also set cookies. Embedded videos, “share” buttons, Twitter or Facebook counters are just a few examples of when you may be served content by other providers on this site.


To better understand their visitors, many sites use analytics tools to analyse traffic to their websites. Analytics services use tracking codes and use cookies to log visits to the site. This data does not identify specific visitors personally. These tools set long-life cookies from our domain. These cookies can not be viewed by other sites but the data is reported back to our partners. Because so many sites use the same packages and the data is centralised with select companies, people may be concerned about their activity across the web being collected. The companies we use are reputable companies with strong privacy policies, but we understand you may still be concerned. Our chosen partner is Google Analytics who if you require it provide an opt-out method.
