Website Privacy

Charnwood Borough Council regards your privacy as important and complies with the Data Protection Act 1998.

We will only use personal information you send to us for the purposes for which you provide it. We will only hold your information for as long as necessary for these purposes and will not pass it to any other parties unless this is made clear to you. All employees who have access to your personal data or are associated with the handling of that data are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your personal data.

Visits to our web site are anonymous (no personal information about you is recorded or gathered) unless you fill in a survey, subscribe to a service or complete some other form requesting information. This information will not be used for purpose other than that for which it was provided.

Cookies

When we provide services we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. When we deliver these services and information through our website this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information multiple times during one task,
  • measuring how many people are using services so we can make sure that there is enough capacity to make them work efficiently, and look at ways we can make them easier to use

Traffic Logs

We use traffic logs to record how often individual web pages are being used. This helps us keep an eye on web page use and so develop the information and services provided to most benefit current and potential users. We only use this information for these purposes.
