Privacy & Cookies

This Policy covers Leicestershire & Rutland Safeguarding Adults Board and Leicestershire & Rutland Safeguarding Children Board, The Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Boards Business Office and their website, http://lrsb.org.uk/

The information that you provide us with, or that is gathered automatically, helps us to monitor our services and provide to you the services that you are entitled to as a resident of Leicestershire or visitor to our website.

We want our users to always be aware of any information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. Please see our Data Protection section for more information.

Cookies

This site uses cookies.

A cookie is small file placed on a user's computer by a Website, which logs information about the user and their previous/current visits for the use of the site next time the user makes contact.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling the website to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information multiple times during one task,
  • measuring how many people are using online services so we can make sure that there is enough capacity to make them work efficiently, and look at ways we can make them easier to use.

We've listed the cookies we use further down this page along with some information about different types of cookies to help you understand what they are and how we use them.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.aboutcookies.org.

To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Even more information about cookies can be found at www.allaboutcookies.org - a site recommended by the office of the Information Commissioner and referred to in Guidance to the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.

Session Cookies

A session cookie is a reference to you for the duration of your visit on the site. It enables us to secure our forms by checking that no one else is pretending to be you. The cookie only lasts as long as your visit.

Remember My Details

When you select "Use a cookie to remember this" we set a cookie to remember who you are. This might be, for example, when logging in to the site. This cookie will last for 1 year from when it is first set. After this time, or if you delete the cookie yourself, you will need to re-enter your details on your next visit.

Remember, if you're on a shared or public computer it's best not to use 'Remember' - the next person to use that computer might then be able to log in as you and cause havoc!
