The Data Protection Act 1998 imposes a legal duty on the Department to protect any personal information we collect from, or about, you. If you are a user with general public and anonymous access, the Department’s website does not store or capture personal information, but merely logs the user's IP address which is automatically recognised by the web server.
The system will record your e-mail address and other information if volunteered to us by you. This shall be treated as proprietary and confidential. If you send us an e-mail or letter asking us for information that belongs to another department we may forward your request to that department for action and advise you that we have done so.
Personal information provided by you will not be passed on to any other sites or used for any purpose other than the purpose for which it was provided. Information provided to us may be used for internal review and to notify you about updates to the website.
Our site provides links to other websites and as this statement only applies to our website you should always read the privacy statement/policy of any site you access that collects personal information.
