Visitors to our website

The computers which host our website maintain site logs which include the IP details of all machines accessing our pages. We only use such logs to determine website usage and not as a means of identifying or obtaining information about specific users. Any IP information is treated as strictly confidential and is not published or divulged to any third party. We do not use cookies to collect and store information.

Disclosure of information

In many circumstances we will not disclose personal information without consent. However in some circumstances we will need to share personal information, either with different departments within Nottinghamshire County Council, or with other organisations. For example we may need to share information without consent in order to prevent or detect crime, or for adult’s or children’s safeguarding.

We have entered into agreements with other organisations for sharing information. If you need any further information about this you can contact the Complaints and Information Team at the addresses above.

Other use of information

We may use information you send us for data analysis, research, statistical and survey purposes. This is to help us improve the services we provide. Where we use information for this purpose it is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone; the information is anonymised.

Photographic images

Images of individuals are treated as personal data. Images of crowds in a public area are not. When taking photographs intended for publication on our website or elsewhere, it is our policy to seek the written permission of any individuals who are photographed.

We will respond promptly to any request to remove photographic images and/or personal data from the website where the person making such a request has a right to do so under the Data Protection Act.
