Visitors to Our Website

When someone visits this website we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting this website. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

Cookies 

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

In order to comply with the EU Cookie Directive we need to tell you what cookies we use and why we use them. This only applies to cookies that are not intrinsic to the functioning of the website. So, for example, if this were an e-commerce site which used cookies to hold your shopping cart information, we would not be obliged to notify you about those cookies.

Here is a summary of the cookies we use and why…

Cookie Family : WordPress

Cookie Name : wp-settings-time, wordpress_test_cookie

Cookie Use : This website runs on the WordPress platform. This is a very widely used content management system that helps website owners to run robust websites and easily manage the content on those websites. WordPress is used in roughly 16% of all new websites being built. WordPress sets several cookies, for example, to track logged-in users, and also to track blog commenters. This is perfectly normal, and operation of the website would be very difficult without them.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Access to Personal Information

We try to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. If we do hold information about you we will: give you a description of it; tell you why we are holding it; tell you who it could be disclosed to; and let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

To make a request to us for any personal information we may hold you need to put the request in writing to the address provided on the Contact page of this website. If you agree, we will try to deal with your request informally, for example by providing you with the specific information you need over the telephone.  If we do hold information about you, you can ask us to correct any mistakes.
