3.0 Personal information that this website collects and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this website uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. This data is used to identify how much traffic the website is generating, to understand how our web pages are being found and to identify the journey of visitors through the website.
GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, however none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer's IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website but may prevent the website functioning as it was designed and intended.
