Privacy & Cookies Policy
Thank you for visiting the SoSustainable website and for viewing our Privacy & Cookies Policy.
We do not collect information about you, other than information automatically collected and stored (see below), when you visit our web site unless you choose to provide that information to us.
Information automatically collected and stored:
When you browse through any web site, certain personal information about you may be collected. We use Google Analytics to help analyse how visitors use this web site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior in an anonymous form. The anonymous information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google. This information is then processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for SoSustainable.co.uk only. We automatically collect and temporarily store the following information about your visit:
1. Your IP address and the type of browser you use to access the Internet.
2. The date and time of your visit
3. The pages that you visited
4. The referring URL
We use this information for statistical purposes to evaluate aggregate visitor numbers and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. We do not link an IP address with the identity of the computer user.
Personally provided information:
You do not have to give us personal information to visit our web site, but if you contact us by email your email address will be stored. All communications addressed to SoSustainable may be stored for reference purposes.
SoSustainable does not disclose, give, sell or transfer any personal information about our visitors, unless required to do so by law.
We use performance cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, and what page they look at for instance. This helps us to continuously improve the design and navigation of our website. These analytics programs also tell us how people reached this site (e.g. from a particular search engine) and whether they have been here before.
Turning Cookies off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. However, doing this will limit the functionality of this and most other websites. It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
