The Local Administrator recognises the need for us to all maintain our privacy and that the Internet can make us a little nervous. This means that your contact details can be as brief as you wish. However, do be aware that the harder it is to get hold of you, the less likely it is that you will be contacted.
We will only keep your contact details for as long as is necessary to provide you with this service and will remove them upon request;
We do not under any circumstances provide any personal data or any information to any third party whatsoever without your prior permission, except in the unlikely event that such information is required by law (e.g. the police);
We will not use your information ourselves for marketing purposes unless you have given us your prior agreement to do so (e.g. where you have requested us to keep you informed of future developments etc). If you do not want us to keep you informed of free updates please let us know.
Data Protection Act 1998
Just to let you know that when you register with us to advertise or publish information, we will need you to provide us with your full contact details because unfortunatey that's the law. However, so that you're reasured, the village idiot is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998, and we will ensure your details are properly managed and not misused.
We need to be mindful that some people visiting our website will very occasionally not share our ethos, aims and aspirations. To help protect ourselves the Local Administrator can offer advice as what information should be made available on the website and what should not to. Also, this website is running sophisticated network management software and all visitors are recorded individually and logged.
As a deterent to the 'low life' that collect email addresses from websites with a view to sending spam, we also suggest that personal email addresses are not published. If you have a business email, you may take a different view and decide otherwise. Data Protection is a subject that we are passionate about and will be happy to discuss with webpage authors the implications of publishing certain types of personal data on this website
