Automatic Data Collection
Our website host, Freethought Internet, uses the cPanel hosting platform, which automatically collects analytical information about visits to these sites. This information includes your IP address, so, technically, it is possible to know that you have visited, although this data is not routinely analysed. Unless it is deemed to be part of illegal or malicious activities, information collected will not be passed on to third parties. Nor will it be used for targeted communication (ads, &c.).
Trackers are not used by these sites, so you will not be followed around the internet by us. However, others (using trackers) may be aware that you have visited our sites. For information on how this might be avoided, you are directed to DuckDuckGo (with which we have no affiliation).
Our sites do not employ bespoke cookies, so no invisible code or data is placed on your computer by us. On pages that run PHP script (such as e-mail webforms), your browser may employ a standard, temporary, session cookie (such as PHPSESSID) to aid the process. This will be deleted when you leave the page. We have no access to data collected by these cookies - unless you send us your completed webform.
If you contact
these sites, you may receive a reply and your contact details may be retained for future reference. Unless it is deemed to be illegal or malicious, information collected will not be passed on to third parties without your permission.
If you would prefer your contact details to be deleted completely from our files, please contact us again via the link below and let us know. We reserve the right to retain material that we deem to be part of illegal or malicious activity.
All pages on this site are provided across a secure connection with a valid certificate supplied by Let's Encrypt through our website host. In most (although not all) web browsers, the address bar will include "https://" as part of the URL. There will also be a secured-padlock icon, which you can click to see information about the connection. To ensure that you are viewing these pages through a secure connection, click here.
Care is taken when suggesting external links on our pages; however, there is no guarantee that those other sites maintain valid security certificates or robust and fair data policies. We can take no responsibility for data collected, cookies used, &c. on other sites (even if we link out to them), so please make sure that you are happy with their security arrangements before proceeding.
