Your privacy is very important to us and we do not collect personal information from you when you visit our website without your prior consent.
We collect data from our website to help us understand how people access it and what people are using it for. This also helps us to work out whether there have been any technical problems with the site. The information that we collect does not contain your personal information and we cannot link it with individual visitors.
We collect personal information only when you specifically and knowingly give it to us. Examples of this are when you send an email to us, or when you fill in an online form giving us your details. We only use the information that you give to us for the reasons stated at the time that you provide it. The only exception to this is where we have a legal obligation to share the information that you provide, or where there is provision in law to do so.
All information that you give to us is processed, actioned and stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
Under the Data Protection Act, you can make a formal request for information about whether we hold information about you and why we have this information. You can also request copies of information that we hold.
Occasionally we work with other service providers to help us to deliver services. Your information is only shared with these companies to allow them to carry out the particular service that you have requested, or for them to provide you with the information that you have asked for. They do this on our behalf and we take all reasonable steps to ensure that each company we work with has proper systems in place to protect personal data.
Our site contains links to other websites. The inclusion of these links is for your convenience and it does not imply that the Council endorses products or services contained on external sites in any way. Because these links are outside of our control, we cannot guarantee that all of the links will work all of the time. We cannot guarantee your privacy once you have left the Council’s site.
