Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many web sites do this whenever a user visits their site in order to monitor visitor traffic.
Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.
If you do not wish to accept cookies on to your machine you can disable them by adjusting the settings on your browser. However this will affect the functionality of the websites you visit.
Use of optional information
On certain web pages, you may be asked to provide your name, e-mail address or other personal information (for example, when asking for an additional bin). We will not use this information for any other purpose; it is never sold, rented or shared with any third party.
If you contact us by e-mail to request information, report a problem or provide feedback on our services we will only use the information you provide (including your e-mail address) to respond to your message. We do not share this information in any way.
If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check this page periodically. We will only use data collected from the time of the policy change onwards for these new purposes.
We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information we have collected from you.
These security measures include the necessary protection to prevent, as far as possible, access to our databases by parties other than Rushcliffe Borough Council.
