This statement covers the services provided by the Ipswich Borough Council website.

Any information you provide will be held securely and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Your personal details will not normally be disclosed to third parties (an exception being bodies responsible for auditing and administering public funds, in order to prevent and detect fraud). In some circumstances however we may need to disclose your personal details to a third party so that they can provide a service you have requested, or fulfil a request for information. Any information about you that we pass to a third party will be held securely by that party, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and used only to provide the services or information you have requested.

You have the right to gain access to the personal information we hold about you at any time. If you wish to do this, please visit our Data Protection page.

Cookies

Delivering online services sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer or device in text files known as cookies. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently.

Cookies are generally set by the website you are visiting (first-party cookies) but if the website has included content from an external resource, such as a Google map, cookies can be set from the origin of the content (third-party cookies).

Session cookies do not have an expiry time set when they are created and are deleted once the browser is closed. However, persistent cookies remain on your computer or device until their expiry time is reached.

The cookies listed below are set by Ipswich Borough Council services when the service is requested unless otherwise specified.
