Privacy Policy

The privacy policy below sets out how Morton Parish Council uses any information that you give us when you use our website, whether as a guest or a registered member/user or when you register for any online services.

Collection of non-personal data

We automatically collect certain non-personal data when you visit our website, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using and the domain name of your internet service provider (or “ISP”).

Collection of personal data

We only ever collect personal data (as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998), such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. through our website when you electronically register to be a registered user of our website or to subscribe to our newsletters. Personal data is required by us in order to provide this service.

How the information collected is used

We use non-personal data to analyse the usage of our website (such as aggregated information on the pages visited), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.

In the ordinary course of business, we use the personal data you give us solely to provide you with the service or services you have registered for on or through our website.

We will not rent or sell your personal data outside Morton Parish Council.

It is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personal data in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request.

Third parties

Our website may occasionally use links to or give access to other websites whose information practices may be different than ours. We have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, such third parties and therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Transmission of information

We cannot guarantee that any email sent from you to us will be received by us or that its contents are or will remain secure during or following transmission. Likewise we cannot guarantee that emails sent by us to you are secure. If you have any concerns about the security of email transmissions to or from us, you may prefer to telephone or write to us instead.

Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including third parties who provide services to us.
