Information we collect automatically
We automatically collect the IP address (which is anonymised to protect your privacy) of visitors to our websites. This includes what pages you have viewed, for how long and your website journey.
Information is also collected about how you (via your anonymised IP address) arrived at our website in the first place, including what links or adverts of ours you have viewed or clicked on to reach us, or any search terms you have used. Where you see an advert outside of our website we will place a cookie on your browser so that, when you access our website, we recognise that you have seen an advert of ours elsewhere.
For further information see our separate cookies notice.
Information we collect from third-party sources
On occasion, we acquire information from another company, for example, to supplement the data that we hold. Where this happens we will take appropriate steps to assure ourselves that your information was collected legally.
For example, we use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors to our website use it, including collecting information on how long visitors spend on each page, how often they return to visit our website and what demographic categories they fall into.
