Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement

Our Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that you may provide via the LGSS Horsham website. Whenever you use this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

Ways that we collect information

Horsham District Council does not capture and store any personal information about individuals who access this web site, except where you voluntarily choose to give us your personal details via online forms, email, or by enquiring about any of our services. In the latter case, the personal data you give Horsham District Council will be used exclusively for providing you with the information you have requested.

Statistical information such as URL, type of browser and the IP address of site visitors is automatically monitored.  This information is not linked to personally identifiable information and is only used by the Council for system administration and to evaluate the use of the site.

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you can access the Internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer).

For further information contact:

Email: dpa@horsham.gov.uk

Submission of personal information (data)

When you supply any personal information to Horsham District Council (e.g. when applying using an online form, or adding your details to an online information service) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data.

We must collect the information fairly; we must let you know how we will use it; and we must tell you in advance if it becomes necessary to pass the information on to anyone else.

All personal information that we obtain from you will be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy and the Data Protection Act 1998. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as it is needed for the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met.
