Collecting some personal information is necessary if we are to satisfy the expectations and requirements of our users and we have set out below what we will do with your personal information.

When someone visits this website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
Security and Performance
We use a third party service to help maintain the security and performance of our website. To deliver this service it processes the IP addresses of visitors to the site. Any third party processing such information on the Council's behalf is contractually obliged to put in place similar measures. However, you should consider any communication that you transmit to us (such as data, questions, answers, comments or suggestions) as non-confidential. The Council will not be liable if information that belongs to you is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient.

• let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.
Please make any such request in writing via our email address email@example.com or by post to Bognor Regis Town Council, the Town Hall, Clarence Road, Bognor Regis, West Sussex, PO21 1LD. You are required to provide your contact details, a brief description of the information you require and enclose proof of your identity.
