    What happens to my personal information if I fill out an online form on the Connexions 360 website?

    We have taken great care to make sure that no one can else can find your personal information. All the web-based forms on this site use powerful 256-bit security . This changes your information into code, which makes it impossible for other people to access. This applies when you send us a comment, suggest content or submit a real life story. Look for the little padlock icon that tells you when your information is being handled securely. It will often be displayed in the address bar or at the bottom right of your screen.

    Where we ask you for personal information in an online form, we will only use this information for the purpose we have said, for example for entry to a competition. Your details will be held securely.

    If you send us a comment or story, this may be edited for spelling, grammar and length before being published on the website. We cannot guarantee we can publish everything we are sent. See our copyright policy

    We will only share your personal information. if we think that you, or someone else may be at risk of harm. We will then only pass on your information to the relevant team in the Council who could help you. If we do this, we will follow the government's child protection and safeguarding rules.

    Your information will not be used for any other reason without your permission and will not be kept for longer than six months if you submit a comment or enter a competition. If you submit a real life story your information will be kept for up to one year.

    If you are worried about submitting your personal information online, we can arrange alternative means for you to do this. Please contact us
