Please read the following policy to understand how we will treat your personal information when you use this site. Any changes to this policy will be posted on this website.
Who Are We?
This Privacy Notice is provided to you by Buckworth Parish Council which is the data controller for your data.
What Personal Data we Collect and Why
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Embedded Content from other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we Share your Data With
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset e-mail.
How Long we Retain your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What Rights you Have Over your Data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we Send your Data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Changes to this Notice
We keep this Privacy Notice under regular review and we will place any updates on the this website. This Notice was last updated in February 2023.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or the personal data we hold about you or to exercise all relevant rights, queries or complaints.
