In accordance with our responsibilities under the Data Protection Act, you should be aware that the personal information you choose to provide will not be passed to any person or organisation outside CWS (unless we have your consent, or where we have a legal obligation or have the statutory powers to do so) but will be held by relevant staff in the service area relevant to your comments. CWS will not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. The CWS web site has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under its control. It will be understood by CWS that, in providing personal information, you agree to its use by CWS under these conditions and to the extent described in this and succeeding clauses of this Disclaimer.
It is only when you complete a form that requests personal information or when you email CWS that you can be identified. When completing forms you may be asked for a variety of personal information such as name, address, postcode etc. Where you voluntarily choose to give us your personal details that data – within the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 – will be used exclusively for providing you with the information or service you have requested. If there is a need to share your personal information with any other system or third party for other reasons then consent for us to do this will be requested at the point of data collection. CWS automatically receives and records information from your browser in server logs. CWS monitors the IP addresses of visitors only to assess which pages are the most popular. These IP addresses are not linked to any personal data so all visitors to our site remain by default anonymous. We will not transfer information about you to any web site that is external to the coastalwestsussex.org.uk domain and to which there is a link from this web site without your consent and specific notification being given to you prior to the transfer.
