Corporate Web Standards

Information ownership

Hampshire County Council embraces devolved information ownership. Every web page has to be owned by a nominated department. They are responsible for:

  • the accuracy and currency of the information provided

  • ensuring that if the information has come from another source, the source is clearly identified

  • providing the contact details to whom a visitor can address any queries.

This standard is of particular importance because information suppliers are legally responsible for the accuracy of their data since the Data Protection Act.

Hantsweb is about public information; confidential information must not be published openly on Hantsweb web.
