Privacy, cookies and legal information

Privacy statement

The CPNI website does not store or capture personal information about you, but merely logs the IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server - CPNI uses this information to analyse the usage of the website and the websites from which visitors have arrived. CPNI does this to assess which parts of the website are the most popular and identify trends in usage, helping to guide the development of new web pages.

The system will only record your email address and other information if volunteered to us by you, for example via the 'contact' page. In this case, your message will be sent via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL), a protocol used for secure communications over the Internet. Web addresses that begin with "https" indicate that an SSL connection will be used.


Cookies

Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies; you can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through Internet browser cookies - what they are and how to manage them.

By using our website, you are consenting to our use of cookies as outlined here: 

To support our information provision and engagement, we use other resources on the web, specifically Google (including YouTube) and ShareThis. As a result, when you use these resources from our website, you may be presented with cookies from those websites. These cookies help us understand how people use the CPNI website, allow you to share pages with social networks and allow the site to work properly. CPNI does not control the dissemination of these third party cookies; you should therefore check the third party websites for more information - the Google (including YouTube) privacy policy and ShareThis privacy statement can be found online.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. We do this to make sure it’s meeting its users’ needs and to understand how we could do it better.

Google Analytics stored information abnout what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.


Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) came into force 1 January 2005, and allows members of the public to request access to information held by certain public authorities.

In legal terms, CPNI is not subject to FOIA and therefore will not process FOIA requests.

For further information on FOIA please refer to the Information Commissioner's Office.


Limitations and amendments

This statement only covers the CPNI website at www.cpni.gov.uk. This statement does not cover third party websites to which we may link.

Any revisions to this statement will be published on this page. It is your responsibility to check this page periodically for any such changes.
