Privacy Policy

Your privacy on the internet is important to us.  As part of using this website, we may gather certain types of information about Parish Council website users.  we would like to explain below the types of information we collect, what we do with it and how to correct or change the information.

Information collected by Great and Little Plumstead Parish Council

we collect two types of personally identifying information from users:

  1. Personal data (such as names and email addresses)
  2. Aggregated data (such as information on traffic patterns - for example how many users log into the website)

Personal Data

Personal data is collected when users provide personal data to Great and Little Parish Council.  This is through registering for the electronic newsletter updates and in answering any surveys.

Aggregated Information

Aggregated information, such as which pages users access or visit and information volunteered by users, such as survey information and/or site registrations, is collected through various methods. For example, GreatandLittlePlumsteadparishcouncil.co.uk collects IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address, and when you request a page from GreatandLittlePlumsteadparishcouncil.co.uk, our servers log your IP address. GreatandLittlePlumsteadparishcouncil.co.uk
does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us. GreatandLittlePlumsteadparishcouncil.co.uk collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to provide aggregate data about the volume of use on GreatandLittlePlumsteadparishcouncil.co.uk.

External links

The Parish Council website contains links to other external websites. This privacy policy applies only to our site, so you should always take care when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement of any site, which collects personal information. Great & Little Plumstead Parish Council accepts no responsibility or liability for these sites.

We do not pass on any personal information you have given us to any other site.
