What information do we collect?
We collect personal and non-personal data for the reasons set out here.
Web server logs
When you browse our website our web servers automatically save general information about your
content requests in server log files. The following data is logged:
- IP address used;
- name of the retrieved content;
- referrer URL (the page, if it exists, that sent you to our site)
- date and time of retrieval;
- transferred amount of data;
- message about successful retrieval or an error message;
- browser type, version and operating system;
This data is primarily collected for the purposes of detecting and correcting errors with the operation
of the website. We also use it to help identify Denial of Service attacks and when necessary we will
use IP address to block access for the benefit of legitimate website users. We do not give these logs
to any third parties and they are automatically deleted after 48 hours.
Like many website operators, we use the Analytics service from Google Inc (“Google”) to measure
how visitors browse our website. We do this to help us understand how the website is used and with
what devices so that we can ensure we provide the best visitor experience. Google provides us with
statistics about various aspects of website usage in the form of a suite of reports. As you browse
content, information about your use of the website is transmitted directly from your browser to
Google’s servers in North America where it is collated and aggregated in order to update the reports.
No personal information about you is sent. And, in particular, we use the Google Analytics IP address
your device when you request website content. These cookies are sent back to the website as part
of any future requests. Google Analytics do this so they can place a unique identifier on your device
in order to recognise that a sequence of content requests is coming from the same source. Although
the identifier is unique to your device it does not allow Google to identify you as an individual.
Moreover, the data they receive cannot be combined with other data sources to identify you as an
individual. Google Analytics cookies are not required for correct operation of our website, should
you choose to refuse them. They are functional cookies used to enable the analytics we use to help
us optimise the website for the benefit of all visitors.
Information about Google Analytics and data privacy can be found at
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245. More on cookies in general and how to
refuse or delete them can be found at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
