Privacy Policy

The purpose of this notice is to inform members of the public about the personal data that Devon County Council collects from website visitors. We do not intend to collect data to identify individuals. However, we may collect certain information as outlined in this notice.

Visitors to our website

When someone visits our website, we collect certain information about these visitors, such as IP addresses and details of the pages which these people have visited. This information does not allow us to identify individuals but helps us ensure our website is structured in the most effective and user-friendly way.

Use of an IP address

An IP address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider, or through your local area network (LAN). Web servers, the powerful computers that provide web pages for viewing, automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your online session.

IP addresses may be collected for certain purposes (for example, to audit the use of our site). We do not link a user’s IP address to a person’s personal data, which means we will have a record of each user’s session but the user will remain anonymous to us.
