Privacy Statement

Our core data protection obligations and commitments are set out in Bradford Council’s primary privacy notice.


This notice provides additional privacy information for those accessing the Council’s Safer Bradford-Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence website and describes how we collect, use and share personal information about you and the types of personal information we need to process, including information the law describes as ‘special’ because of its sensitivity.


Personal information we collect and use


Information collected by Safer Bradford-Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Website

The information we collect will be the minimum we need to deliver our service and as such we will not collect and hold any personal information about you.

Our service is to give advice and information only and can be accessed anonymously

How long your personal data will be kept

This website will not hold any personal data about you.

Any data used in relation to statistical information or reports will be anonymised. Such data includes how many people have accessed our site, and which pages. We do this so we can build a picture of what information is needed most by those visiting our site. We can then ensure we prioritise these areas.


Who we share your personal information with

Our website has a number of links to services and organisations that offer help and support. Please see their individual privacy statements to see how they collect and use any personal data about you to deliver their services.


Telephone calls

We do not generally record any calls you make to our service. However, if it was necessary to do so, we will always inform you if we record or monitor any telephone calls you make to us.  

Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we won’t ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions.  


Keeping your personal information secure

Bradford Council has appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way.

We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security incidents and we will notify you and the appropriate regulator of any incident where we are legally required to do so.




Cookies are small text files that ‘remember’ bits of information from your visit to a website. They make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. Without cookies the website thinks you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page. Cookies on this site are not used to identify you personally. We also use them to collect anonymous statistics about how people use the site, and to help us to make it as easy for you to use as we can. A cookie is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Only that server can retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. So if we put a cookie on your computer it cannot be read by any other website. We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. If you continue without changing your cookie settings, we assume that you are happy with our use of cookies. However, you can change your cookie settings at any time.
