The north-norfolk.gov.uk web server may automatically recognise the domain name and e-mail address (where possible) of users of our websites. We may collect the domain name and e-mail address of visitors to north-norfolk.gov.uk , the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, and all information volunteered by the user, such as survey information and/or site registrations.

To ensure that your card details remain secure, you will only be able to make online payments if you have Internet Explorer 5.5 or above installed on your PC. Internet Explorer 5.5 supports Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which is an industry standard for internet payments. This means all of your personal and card details are protected using 128 bit encryption when your details are transmitted over the Internet. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone else to discover and use your details.
You can check your browser encryption strength by using your mouse to hover over a padlock icon in the bottom right hand corner of your browser window (it should be a closed padlock). When you do this, it should tell you that it is SSL Secured 128 bit
