Privacy policy

Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of anyone who visits the Joint Strategic Needs and Assets Assessment (JSNAA) website.

Personal information collected via online forms

We have taken great care to make sure that no-one can intercept personal information about you.

Where we ask you for personal information through an online form, this information will only be used for the purpose indicated and it will be held in a secure manner.

Your information will not be used for any other purpose without your permission and will not be kept for longer than necessary. If you are concerned about providing your personal information online, we can arrange alternative means for you to do this. Please contact the JSNA team.

Use of IP addresses

Every computer has its own individual IP address, identifying it in the same way as a telephone number identifies your phone line.

We collect IP addresses only for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that while your use of the website will be logged you will remain anonymous to us.

Use of cookies

A cookie refers to a text file which is stored on a user's hard drive and is used to identify that user when they revisit a website. A common use of cookies is to store information entered into a form so it does not need to be re-entered on subsequent visits. We use cookies occasionally on our site, but you can use your browser settings to block them if you want to.

You can find out more about cookies, how they're used and how you can opt out of using them:

Here's a list of the cookies we use, what they're called and what they do.

  • '__utma', '__utmb', '__utmc', '__utmz'
    These are set by Google Analytics. We use this service to help us understand how many people are visiting the website and how they're using it, so that we can see where we can improve.
    Opt out of Google Analytics – Google Tools website.
  • 'ASP.NET_SessionId' and 'ASPSESSIONIDxxx' (the xxx part is different for everyone)
    These are temporary cookies needed by some of the tools on the website to recognise you from one page to the next. They're deleted when you leave our site.
