Protecting Your Email Address.
You will not receive unsolicited paper or electronic mail from us as a result of using an electronic form unless we explicitly ask for and get your permission.
We will not pass on your e-mail address or any of your personal details to other organisations.
However, please note that if you choose to make your e-mail address publicly available on our website (via our forums, for example), it may be picked up and used by companies who specialize in creating e-mail distribution lists to send you unsolicited e-mail ('spam').
All sensitive personal information that we display and gather (e.g. financial and credit card details) will be sent through a secure connection.
All other information will be sent over the Internet. Do not include sensitive personal information by email. It cannot be assumed that this is secure and we cannot accept responsibility for misuse of information intercepted in this way.
This policy applies to Harrogate Borough Council's website. Other websites, linked to from this website, have their own privacy policies.
