Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council (the Council or we or us) is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This privacy policy explains how we use the information we collect about you and how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information.

1. The information we collect and how we use it.

We do not actively seek to collect information about you via this website except where you are invited to complete a form to request a service. We will only collect information sent to us by you on such forms or in e-mails, which you send to us of your own volition.

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 we have a duty to protect any information we collect from you. Information you provide to us (e.g. contact details) within an e-mail or form will only be used by us for the purpose for which it was provided. We will not intentionally pass your details onto any third party unless obliged to do so by any statute, regulation or other legally binding authority including but not limited to government request. It may, however, become necessary to pass the information to departments of the Council other than one to which your original e-mail or form was submitted. If you wish to place any restrictions on the use of information, which you may supply to the Council, you should detail such restrictions within an e-mail to the Council.

We may collect information to provide statistics for the purpose of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop this website and our services. These statistics will not contain information which can be used to identify individuals.
