General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance
We use Google Analytics to record visitors and pages visited on the website. Data recorded includes:
URL – the URL of the page the user is viewing
Title – the title of the page the user is viewing
Browser name – the browser the user is using
Viewport or Viewing pane – the size of the browser window
Screen resolution – the resolution of the user’s screen
Java enabled – whether or not the user has Java enabled
Location – this is derived from the IP address where the hit originated. The IP address itself is not available in Google Analytics as it is personally identifiable information (PII) which violates the terms of Google Analytics.
Language – derived from the language settings of the browser
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL provides a secure communication channel between your device’s browser and our web server. This turns a website’s address from HTTP to HTTPS, the ‘S’ standing for ‘secure’. This is particularly important if submitting your details via a web form. Anyone intercepting this communication will not be able to decrypt the data between the two devices.
The Right to be Forgotten
If you wish to request to be provided with full exposure of what data is held about you or you wish to request the data is completely removed from the our system – aka ‘the Right to be Forgotten’, email our Data Protection Officer (DPO) on firstname.lastname@example.org
