This website may log some information about website users (such as IP addresses). This information is anonymous and is held purely for system administration purposes.
Personal information will be stored on a secure server and will be processed by a Bath and North East Somerset Council as the data controller. This data will be held and processed under the terms of the Data Protection Act 2018.

If any information we hold about you is incorrect please let us know. We are committed to upholding the principles of the Data Protection Act, and will not process your information in a way incompatible with these principles.

This privacy statement only covers the websites run by the Heritage Services section of Bath & North East Somerset Council. Other links within these sites to other websites are not covered by this privacy statement.
We aim to ensure that our websites are up to date and relevant for our visitors. To help us achieve this goal we use Google Analytics and other analytical systems to analyse anonymous data collected by cookies about how visitors use our websites. This data also helps us to measure the success of our marketing campaigns across Heritage Services.
Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)
We use Google Analytics on an ongoing basis to collect information about how people use the website, and from time to time share other third-party services. We do this to make sure we are meeting our users' needs and to understand how we can improve the site.
Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store any personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify you. We do not allow Google to share our analytics data.
We use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to more accurately determine visitors by age, gender and interests. This helps us better establish the types of content we make available and what we produce online is relevant to our audiences.
You can opt out of Google Analytics by implementing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
