Our collection and storage of data
This is essentially a non-commercial website. As such we do not make any effort to collect personally identifying data about any visitors to this website. We may however store any data which you send to us voluntarily about yourself. This can only happen if you get in touch with us via email, post, telephone or text message. We cannot collect personally identifying information about any visitor by any other means. As a result you have complete control over any personally identifying data that you choose to send us.
Collection of non-identifying data
The record is kept of every visitor to our website. This is generic information about the pages that our visitors have looked at, how long they stayed on these pages, and in what order. In a small proportion of visits we are also able to see the search terms that our visitors used in order to find our website via a search engine.
We can also get statistical data about the types of devices that our visitors were using at the time they viewed our website, including the kind of software that was on these devices.
We must stress that this is generic information only which we use for statistical purposes in order to analyse the use of our website. None of it can be linked to any individual visitor and we cannot use any of it to personally identify any visitor.
Sorting of data
We do not make any attempt to sort personally identifiable data about our visitors. We may from time to time sort the non-identifying data so that we can analyse trends in the usage of our site and hopefully improve it as a result.
Disclosure of data
We do not disclose data of any kind to any person outside our own small organisation and we do not propose to do so in the future unless we are compelled to do so in order to comply with legal obligations, or in order to protect ourselves, our visitors, our computer and server systems, or our website from current or prospective risks.
Sale of data
We will not transfer any data about any visitor to any other person for financial gain.
