Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

When you supply any personal information to us we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data.

In general, any information you provide will only be used within the South Downs National Park Authority and by its service providers, including the South Downs National Park Trust. It will never be supplied to anyone outside South Downs National Park Authority or the South Downs National Park Trust without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met or you request us to do so.¬† You can ask us to stop using your information at any time (also known as “opting-out”) by contacting us on the details below. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely.
