Personal Information That This Website Collects and Why We Collect It

Site visitation tracking

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, 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 - their Privacy Policy is available here.

GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

Contact Forms

Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to/be processed by any third party data processor. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.

What's On Submission Forms

When you use our add event form to submit event details, we store those details in our database. This includes the name and email address entered in to the form. These details, including the name and email address, are displayed to anyone using the events listing service. You are not obliged to enter these details to have an event listed. However they can assist anyone who may have questions about the event.

We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public any personal information collected via this website.
