Use of your information
Where you are asked for personal information via the online consultation form, this information will only be used for the purpose of conducting the consultation exercise. Information will not be used for any other purpose without your permission. At all times, your information will be properly safeguarded and processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
A summary of who has responded to each consultation and a summary of views expressed in the response to each question will be published, and full consultation responses may be published.

On individual consultations, you may be offered the option to keep your response confidential.

Where a respondent has opted to keep their response confidential, it would only be disclosed if it becomes illegal to refuse to do so.
