Privacy & Cookies
This document explains the collection, use and disclosure of personal and other information through this website. Personal information means information that personally identifies you, such as your name, address, telephone number and email address.
We are committed to the privacy of our visitors. We collect no personal information about you when you visit this website unless you choose to provide that information to us, for instance by requesting more information or placing an order.
Some non-personal information is collected automatically during your visit to this website. This information cannot identify you personally, but helps us understand how visitors use the website so we can improve our service. Non-personal information we collect during your visit includes:
- The Internet domain you are connecting from, such as ‘yourcollege.ac.uk’ if you’re connecting from a college, or ‘457gjdk4.aol.com’ if you’re connecting from a private Internet access account.
- Your IP address. This is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. In some cases the number stays the same from session to session, but in many cases, especially if you’re using a consumer Internet Service Provider, it changes each time you connect to the Internet.
- The type of browser and operating system you are using.
- The date and time you access the website.
- If you clicked a link on another website to reach this one, the address of the referring website. If the website was a search engine, the search term used to find the website is also collected.
If you voluntarily provide information to us, such as by filling in an online form, or sending us an email, this constitutes your consent to the use of that information for the stated purpose.
Information, personal or otherwise, is never sold or made available to third parties for any purpose, except when we are obliged to do so by the government or third parties under certain circumstances. There is always the possibility that third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
Cookies are small files stored on a visitors computer. There are two types – ‘session cookies’, that are maintained for the duration of a browsing session, and then destroyed when the user closes the browser window, or ‘persistent cookies’, which are saved on a users’ hard drive in order to identify either the user, or information about the user, the next time they log onto a website.
This website uses both session and persistent cookies. It uses persistent cookies to help our users stay logged in to our website, track how our visitors use this website, and enable users to interact with social networks they are already logged in to.
