This statement relates to our privacy practices in connection with this website. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other websites, and links from this website to external websites are clearly identifiable as such.

We fully respect your right to privacy and will not collect any personal information about you on this website without your clear permission.

  1. Information that is gathered from visitors

In common with other websites, log files are stored on the web server saving details such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visit. We gather the following personal data: 

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. 

Contact forms

We collect the names, email addresses, organisation names, phone numbers of people who contact us by filling out and submitting the Contact Us Form on our website.

Cookies are small digital signature files that are stored by your web browser that allow your preferences to be recorded when visiting websites. They may also be used to track your return visits to websites. Our policy regarding the collection of cookies by this website is available to read here.

This is a WordPress website. If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select ‘Remember Me’, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

  1. Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other websites, and links from this website to external websites are clearly identifiable as such.

  1. How the information is used

The information is used to enhance the visitor’s experience when using the website to display personalised content and possibly advertising. Email addresses will not be sold, rented or leased to third parties.

  1. Retention periods

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely by WordPress. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

  • Mailing lists are reviewed every two years and if there has been no engagement within this period, users will be removed from the mailing list.
  • C.V. and job applications are deleted after 12 months.
  • If staff have received no engagement from users regarding inquiries, any communication will also be deleted after 12 months.
