Information Collection and Use:
BEEMS is a partnership project led by Southampton City Council. The Council is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others.
This website complies with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) 2011. The changes to the regulations mean that website owners need to get consent from visitors if they are to store cookies on the users’ computers. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
There are currently only two cookies used on the whole site. The first is to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to different parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will make it clear when we want to do so and will explain what we intend to do with it.
The second cookie we use is to remember that the user has ticked the box agreeing to cookies when they first enter the site, so that they only need to agree to this once and won't be asked the next time they visit. Once the user closes their browser, the cookies simply terminate. If we need to add more cookies at a later date we will ensure that these are explained in this policy.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
For complaints, please write to The Data Protection Officer, Legal Services, Southampton City Council, Civic Centre, Southampton, SO14 7LY or use the Council's complaints procedure.
If we ask you for information, we will comply with the law, including the Data Protection Act 1998. For independent advice about data protection, privacy and data-sharing issues, you can contact the Information Commissioner at: Email: email@example.com or Website: www.ico.gov.uk
