Privacy Policy

Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of anyone who visits the West Berkshire Council website

This privacy information relates only to your use of the West Berkshire Council website. 

When you make an application, request for service, or otherwise provide personal data through the website, the service in question will provide a "Privacy Notice" to explain what it is collecting, why and who gets to see it.

Check our list of Privacy Notices for more information.

Personal Data and this website

The West Berkshire Council website does not collect any personally identifiable data about your visit to our website, unless you provide us with it as part of applying for a service, contacting us directly or otherwise interacting of your own choice.   We do not collect IP addresses except for anonymised monitoring and analysis of how our site is being used - it is never used for marketing or targeting of commercial services.  We use Google Analytics for the purpose of providing insights into how our customers use our website, but since we don't use the Google Advertising Features function, no identifiable tracking takes place that would require your consent to undertake under Data Protection legislation.

We may place cookies on your computer to help your visit run smoothly - there's more on these below.


This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are very small text files that are placed on your computer and we use them to store your personal preferences (ie text size or colour chosen if you use the accessibility buttons) and to track which pages are viewed so that we can make improvements to our site navigation. We do not store any personal information within cookies.

From time to time we may use third parties to survey our website to obtain feedback. It is possible that those third parties may use cookies.

You can delete your cookies at any time, but please be aware that some parts of our website may not work properly and your preferences may be lost.

You can read more about which cookies we use here.
