Privacy and cookies
We handle people's personal details in accordance with the letter and spirit of the Data Protection 1998. We only collect personal details that are strictly necessary and we don't keep personal details longer than is necessary. Your personal details will never be used for marketing purposes, nor do we share personal information with third parties. We do have a MailChimp newsletter and we think you should subscribe to it - but we don't assume you want to do so. To subscribe you need to opt in, rather than the other way round.
To comply with the cookie law we don't use analytics software (i.e. Google Analytics) nor do we allow third parties to track visitors of this website. The server does log information every time you view a page on our website, including your IP address. We use a programme called Awstats to view the server's log files in aggregatted view, which means we can see how many people looked at a particular page without knowing which IP addresses looked at that page. Our web guru may look at the raw server logs to make sure the website functions properly.
YouTube videos embedded on this website use its privacy-enhanced mode, which means YouTube won’t track you if you don't play a video (they will track you if you do play a video). External hyperlinks will link to encrypted (https) pages if possible.
If you don't like the idea of anonymous marketing companies tracking you online your best option is to use a browser extension such as Ghostery (available for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and even Internet Explorer). Firefox users may also want to try NoScript.
Another option is to block all 'third party' cookies by default. It are these cookies that allow marketeers to track you, and all major browser manufacturers give you the option to prevent such cookies from being set. Safari already does so by default, and Firefox is considering doing the same.
