The Data Protection Act
Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We use leading technologies and encryption software where necessary to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so or we have a legal obligation to do so.
What information do we collect?
We collect three kinds of information from visitors to sstaffs.gov.uk: service request/reporting information, feedback and site usage information, from cookies and log files.
Service request/reporting information
In most cases we will collect simple contact details and a brief overview of the problem being reported or the service that is required.
This information is stored securely within the service unit responsible. We do not use this information to trace your identity and do not pass it on to any third party or government department.
You can send us your feedback by comments and questions to the Webmaster or service contacts, sent by e-mail, phone or post.
If you send an e-mail or letter to the Webmaster or call our service contacts, asking for information, we may need to contact other government departments to find that information. If your question is technical, we may need to pass it to our technology supplier. We do not pass on any of your personal information when dealing with your enquiry, unless you have given us permission to do so.
