Privacy and data protection
Information about what we do with any information you send us through our website.
Information which you send to Durham County Council through this website, either by email or through electronic forms, will be treated as follows:
- We will keep information no longer than we reasonably believe is necessary.
- We will use information only for the purpose for which you sent it.
- We may use information for statistical analysis but in such a way that your identity will not be involved.
If any forms need further consent from you, this will be explicitly asked for, and explained, as part of the submission process.
Unless stated otherwise (for example that you are viewing information over a secure connection) information transmitted over the internet is not secure and we cannot accept responsibility for misuse of information intercepted in this way.
All emails and any associated attachments received by Durham County Council will be electronically intercepted and examined for viruses etc. This is purely routine and any delay will be kept to a minimum.
