We do not sell, rent or exchange your personal information with any third party.

Cookies   ‘Cookies’ are small bits of text that are either used for the duration of a session (‘session cookies’), or saved on a user’s hard drive in order to identify that user, or information about that user, the next time the user logs on to a Web site (‘persistent cookies’).

  • This site may use persistent cookies to provide streamlined navigation throughout this site and for statistical analysis. You can set up your Web browser to inform you when cookies are set or to prevent cookies from being set.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically   If you visit our site to read or download information, we collect and store the following information about your visit:

  • The name of the Internet domain (for example, ‘xcompany.com’ if you use a private Internet access account, or ‘yourschool.edu’ if you are connecting from a university’s domain) and the IP address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet) from which you access our site.

This information is primarily collected for statistical analysis and technical improvements to the site. Stinchcombe Parish Council uses software programs to create summary statistics, which may be used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

Viruses   When you request a file for download from our site, it is possible, though unlikely, that the data may contract a virus and become corrupted before it reaches your computer. Stinchcombe Parish Council is not responsible for files that may become corrupted as the data travels the Internet. We recommend that you check all files downloaded for viruses before opening with a recognised virus package.
