I am committed to ensuring that your information is secure.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

I use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps me analyse data about web-page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to user’s needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and the data is then removed from the system.

Overall, cookies helps me provide you with a better website, by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Analytics

On this website I use Google Analytics to track user behaviour. This information is collected anonymously. This service tracks how users find this website (the referrer), information about the device used to visit my site and information about what pages are viewed and for how long. Additionally specific user behaviour on the site, such as links being clicked or images being viewed, can also be tracked. This information is used to help optimize my website and improve the user experience. To opt-out of Google Analytics, both on my site and others, you may install the google analytics opt-out browser addon https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Links to other websites

My website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave my site, you should note that I do not have any control over those other websites. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Controlling your personal information

I will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless I have your permission or are required by law to do so. I may use your personal information to keep you updated on Karen Yeomans projects of interest and news.
