1. Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following information about you:
- Information that you provide when you submit your own content to us for display on the Site. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with the Site.
- If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
- We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
- Details of your visits to the Site (including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, whether this is required for our own billing purposes or otherwise) and the resources that you access.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Generally, we will only use your information within Arts Council England. However, sometimes we will use third parties, for example the BBC, to process your information. We have contractual provisions in place which require that these third parties comply strictly with our instructions and that they do not use your information for their own business purposes.

The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
