Welcome to Learning Zone
We want to use the information you tell us about your health to give you an interactive Learning Zone that’s tailored to you and your diabetes.
For example, we’ll show you videos about the type of diabetes you have, or sometimes we’ll email you about new things we’ve added. We promise to store your information securely and keep it confidential.
We also look at how people are using Learning Zone so we can see how to make it better, and to help with our research. We promise to keep this data completely anonymous.
To use Diabetes UK’s Learning Zone, we need to ask a few questions to find out more about you and your diabetes. The information you provide means Learning Zone can provide you with the correct content and a more personalised experience.
How Learning Zone uses your personal information:
Learning Zone has been created to provide practical, everyday advice and information for people living with diabetes. To help us provide the right information to you, we’ll need to ask you some questions about you and your diabetes. This information helps us make sure the information we give you is relevant and clinically accurate for you.
We ask if you live with diabetes and what type of diabetes it is. We ask when you were diagnosed and how you treat your diabetes. Finally, we need to know your age, gender and postcode. All of this helps us make sure the information we give you is relevant and clinically accurate to you.
You’ll also be asked for your name and contact details when you join, including your email address. This allows us to contact you to let you know about new content on Learning Zone or to let you know about changes we make to the service.
Learning Zone won’t work without this information. As you continue through Learning Zone you’ll be asked a little more about you, your diabetes and what’s important to you. Again this helps us give you the right information for you. All this information is stored by the website securely and is completely confidential.
