Information about all users

The website does not capture or store personal information from site visitors without their knowledge, other than to log the user's IP address and session information such as the duration of the visit to the site and the type of web browser used, the numbers and frequency of visitors to the site and its pages.

Acceptable use of comments

By submitting a comment in any section of our site, which includes our blog, you agree to abide by the following rules. These rules are designed to ensure participants feel comfortable and equal in the online discussion and keen to take part, and that the discussion meets its objectives.

  1. Be respectful of others. Debates may be lively but taking part should be a positive experience for all participants. Comments should be civil and tasteful, and must not be malicious or designed to offend. No reference should be made to the personality of other participants nor should attacks be made on an individual's character
  2. Stay on-topic. Your comment should be within scope of the topic under discussion. Please don't post messages that are unrelated to the forum, blog, webchat or wiki discussion you are contributing to.
  3. Don't incite hatred on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality, sexuality or other personal characteristic. Don't swear, use hate-speech or make obscene or vulgar comments. 
  4. Don't break the law. This includes libel, condoning illegal activity and contempt of court (comments which might affect the outcome of an approaching court case). You should remember that you are legally responsible for what you write. By submitting a comment you undertake to indemnify the Department for Communities and Local Government against any liability arising from its publication.
  5. Don't post personal information - addresses, phone numbers, email addresses or other online contact details either relating to yourself or other individuals.
  6. Don't engage in 'spamming'. Please don't add the same comment in more than one place, or more than once to the same discussion. 
  7. Don't advertise. You can mention relevant products and services as long as they support your comment. No advertising or promotion is allowed except where it is for an event, publication or similar item that has direct relevance to the subject of discussion. Information about locating and sharing knowledge and expertise is welcomed, but within the specific discussion provided. All links submitted must be appropriate for a general audience, and must not link the site to material that is obscene, defamatory or inciting to hatred or violence.
  8. Don't impersonate or falsely claim to represent a person or organisation. Please don't mislead other users by abusing our registration procedure. 
  9. Don't post in a language other than English. 
  10. Avoid being party political - this site is not about point-scoring. Comments used for party political purposes cannot be published for propriety reasons.
  11. Under 16? - If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission before commenting. Users without this consent are not allowed to participate or provide us with personal information. 
  12. Be concise - other users are more likely to read your contribution if it is concise, and for this reason we don't generally publish commentslonger than 100-200 words.

The decision to publish comments received via this site remains at our discretion. Comments that violate any of the above rules will not be published.
