How your response and personal information may be used by us and others

Analysis by EDF Energy

Your response and personal information will be analysed by EDF Energy and used solely in connection with the consultation process and any subsequent planning applications and, except as noted below will not be passed to any third parties.

Public reporting by EDF Energy and others

Summaries of this consultation will be made publicly available. Responses to this consultation may therefore be displayed on a public website and may be included in published reports. A list of organisations who have registered and a list of organisations who have responded to the consultation may be displayed on a public website and may be included in published reports.

Your comments and personal details could be made available, in due course, to the relevant planning or local authority or government body so your comments can be taken into account. These authorities may choose to publish your response. Although not directly within our control, we will request that your personal details are not made publicly available by them; in any event, the relevant planning or local authority, or government body, will itself be required to comply with the GDPR.

Attribution of consultation responses in published documents and on this website

For responses made by individuals, the response will be displayed but the respondent's name will not be linked with this (unless referred to in the body of the response - see below), so the response will not be attributed to an identified individual.

For responses made on behalf of an organisation, the organisation name will be displayed together with the response, but not the name of the individual who made the response.

Inclusion of personal information in the body of consultation responses

IMPORTANT: If a consultation response includes a participant's personal details or information which could identify an individual (e.g. name, job title, address), or details of other individuals or organisations, we will assume that the participant agrees to the response including any such details to be displayed on this website and/or in reporting documentation and also that the individual submitting the response has the consent of any third party individuals for their personal information to be used in this way. IF YOU DO NOT WISH THIS TO HAPPEN, PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION IN THE BODY OF THE CONSULTATION RESPONSE.


This website has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. The information you provide will be held and transferred securely. It will only be used for engagement purposes related to the subject of this consultation.

Consent to cookies and IP address analysis

This website uses cookies. How and why we use these cookies is explained in our Cookies Policy. By registering and logging in to the consultation you will be consenting to our use of cookies in accordance with this policy.

We use Google Analytics to track and analyse site visits, but only if you expressly give us permission to do so. Google Analytics logs IP addresses in order to obtain approximate data as to the location of a visitor's computer. To protect privacy these IP addresses are anonymised before they are stored on Google's servers and used in visitor analysis. Anonymisation is accomplished by deleting the final part (octet) of the IP address, so that the address represents many computers or devices rather than a single computer or device.

We collect the IP address, and browser type associated with the computer you use to access this website. We do this for the purposes of system administration and to analyse the use of our website. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that this is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Material uploaded will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, and we have the right to use, copy, distribute and disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose (subject to privacy law constraints). We also have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any material posted or uploaded by you to our website constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy.

Any views or opinions expressed in consultation responses are those of the consultees and not the views of EDF Energy or its agents. We will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials posted by you or any other user of our website.

We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of our website or to your downloading of any material posted on it, or on any website linked to it.
