The App is a free health application for parents and carers of children aged 0-5. The App enables you to access information about your child’s health and is tailored using the age of your child (or expected delivery date if you are currently pregnant). The App provides information which has been approved by local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Trusts or Local Authority on many issues that may be encountered by parents and their children.

Damibu Limited is compliant with NHS England Information Governance. Our Data Protection Registration Number is ZA276533.
  • 1. Information/Data

    When using the App for the first time you will be asked to provide your postal district (the first half of your postcode). The App transmits this to our servers to determine details relating the most relevant supported NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS Trust or Local Authority. The server also determines your Council Ward and your Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA), both geographic hierarchy designed to improve small area statistics in England and Wales. These values, your Postal District, your Council Ward and your LSOA, are stored on your device and used in geographically placing app usage. If, by mistake, you enter your full postcode, this will be transmitted to your servers which will ignore all but the postal district. At no time is your full postcode stored either by the app or our servers.

    The Application does NOT request a surname or any further information that may identify you or your child. You can provide your child’s name, date of birth or birth due date. Your child’s name and age is stored only on your mobile device and is not transmitted to our servers or shared in any kind. By knowing your child’s age the App can provide suitable guidance and information relevant to the age. The App is for use by parents/carers of children between the age-range of 0 – 5 years old.

    We have partners such as NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Trusts and Local Authorities who validate the information presented in CATCH for your area, ensuring it is locally relevant. App usage analytics, aggregated by Postal Districts, Council Wards and LSOAs, are shared with these partners. No personally identifiable information about you or your child is shared with these partners.

    We may contact you from time to time through notifications visible within the app to provide you with important information, required notices and to request you to complete surveys, questionnaires or single questions. You are not obliged to complete any.

    Surveys and questionnaires may request additional information (e.g. email or telephone number). When this happens we will clearly state the reason for asking for such information. This personal information will only be used for this reason and will not be linked to any usage analytics of the APP.
  • 2. Automatically Collected Information

    The App may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile operating system and information about the way you use the App. All usage will be logged against your Postal District, your Council Ward and your LSOA. No Information is personally identifiable.

    When you visit the App, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location to display a location map with relevant health and social care providers. At no point is your GPS location transmitted to our servers or shared in any kind.
