If you are a user with general public and anonymous access the Defra website does not store or capture personal information, but merely logs the user’s IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server.
This privacy statement only covers the Defra website at http://www defra.gov.uk and/or http://ww2.defra.gov.uk. This statement does not cover other sub-domains (of the form http://subdomain.defra.gov.uk or www.subdomain.defra.gov.uk) – such addresses are typically used by web-based applications which may take different approaches to registration or logging of users – nor to links within this site to other websites.
Defra may from time to time use pixels, or transparent GIF files, together with cookies, to help manage certain online advertising. In either or both cases the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
