The council's websites do not store or capture personal information. The council monitors the IP addresses of visitors in order to assess which pages are the most popular. IP addresses are not linked to any personal data so all site visitors remain anonymous.
Users may choose to volunteer personal information (data from which you can be identified - your name and address or email address) to enable the council to provide services or for correspondence.

We will only hold your information for as long as necessary for these purposes and will not pass it to any other parties unless this is made clear to you.

Pages on sites run by Wyre Council include links to other sites. We try to include links to relevant organisations that you may find useful. However, with numerous websites around the world, we do need guidelines to help ensure we are fair and consistent.
Our external links provide users with further sources of relevant information and advice. As a general rule we usually link to government websites, partners or not-for-profit/non-commercial websites.
We do not maintain the external sites accessed through these links, and therefore does not assume any responsibility for their content. The inclusion of a link to a third-party web site on a Wyre run web page should not be considered an endorsement or recommendation.
If you have any queries about information accessed through links, you are advised to check directly with the organisation concerned.
We have two types of links:
- internal links - these link to another part of the Wyre Council website. These might be referred to as related pages
- external links - these are links to sites that we do not own, or have any control over, but that we think you might find useful.
We do not link to:
- sites which are not free to access
- external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind
- commercial websites.
The reason for not linking to commercial websites is to be fair to everyone. If we add a link for one commercial website in a specific sector then we need to include all relevant links and that is not the core purpose of the Wyre Council website. We do accept though that, despite trying to enforce this rule, there may be occasions where we do include commercial website links but this is not normal or regular.
We try to review all external links on our sites regularly to check their content and quality. However, if you find a broken link or it links to material you feel is unsuitable, please contact us and let us know.
Linking to our website
Links may be made to our website from personal and organisational websites. We request that you link to our site rather than downloading portions of it to another web server, so that viewers will see the most up-to-date information.
Emails contain information intended for the addressee only. It may be confidential and may be the subject of legal and/or professional privilege.
If you are not the intended recipient, any disclosure, copying, distribution or use of the email and/or any attachment is strictly prohibited.
Any views expressed by the sender of the message are not necessarily those of Wyre Council. They may be personal or contain personal opinions and therefore cannot be taken to be an expression of Wyre Council's position.
If you have received a transmission in error, please use the reply function to tell us and permanently delete the message.
Please note: Incoming and outgoing email messages are routinely monitored for compliance with our policy on the use of electronic communications. Wyre Council scans outgoing emails for viruses and it is your responsibility to carry out any checks before opening the email and/or attachments.
