What information we collect

If you are a user with general public and anonymous access the Educational Psychology & Specialist Support website does not store or capture personal information, but merely logs the user’s IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server.

We collect information from visitors to the Educational Psychology & Specialist Support website using Google Analytics, which anonymously tracks things like numbers of visits/visitors/pageviews to our website, popular pages, customer journeys, and what browser or device people are using. It does not collect any personal information about the individual user. This enables us to monitor the performance of the website, ensure it can be used by everybody, and to deliver relevant and timely information to users.

You can ask for information or request services in five ways: by requests and questions sent by online forms, email, phone, post or in person. You can make comments and give us your feedback in the same way.

If you send an email or complete a form on the website asking for information or a service, or sending a comment that requires a response, it will be passed to the appropriate department who will respond to you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission or the Council is legally obliged to do so or it is for the prevention or detection of crime or fraud.

After we have replied to you, the Customer Service Centre will keep a record of your message for one year. Any queries which have been forwarded to other departments for a response may be kept for longer, but always in accordance with Educational Psychology & Specialist Support data protection policy.
