This is the privacy policy of the States of Guernsey site www.gov.gg

Your rights and the Data Protection Law


The States of Guernsey complies with the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2001. Personally identifiable information the States of Guernsey receives about you via GOV.GG or any other route will not be disclosed to any third party without your prior consent or the requestor's demonstrated legal authority to receive it.

Browsing


We collect certain information about your computer and your interaction with the site when you browse GOV.GG:

This data is not personally identifiable and by using the site, you are agreeing to this data being collected. It is only used to help us to monitor and improve the site (such as making updates to the popular pages buttons on the home page).

Submitting feedback


If you submit feedback via the Was this page helpful? buttons at the bottom of each page, the information:

We would recommend that you use an online contact form to submit any message containing personal details, since this will ensure it is directed to the relevant service area more quickly.

Submitting online forms


If you submit on online form, such as a contact us, complaint or request recycling bags forms, which require you to provide personal data, the information:

We won't share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes and we don't pass on your details to other websites. However, please be aware that the information you submit will only be encrypted up to the point it is received by the gov.gg server. Its onward transmission to the relevant staff member is by unencrypted means (equivalent to sending an email), so (although still protected from being accesses by anyone outside the States of Guernsey) your information could be viewed by other staff or suppliers within the organisation. Data protection policies and good practice are in place to protect your data from misuse at all times.

Links to other websites


GOV.GG contains links to and from other websites. This privacy policy only applies to this website and doesn't cover other States of Guernsey online services and transactions that we link to. If you go to another website from this one, always read the privacy policy on that website to find out what it does with your information. Usually, you will see a difference in the look of the web pages, flagging that you have gone into another website but if you are unsure, you can check the web address. All the pages within this site start with www.gov.gg.

For your information, online payment transactions with the States of Guernsey are always encrypted.

Changes to this policy


We may, at any time, revise this privacy policy without notice so you should check it regularly. Continued use of the GOV.GG website after a change has been made is your acceptance of the change.
