This cookie notice is for the Cardiff Outreach website only (www.cardiffoutreach.education)
We use the following kinds of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies (necessary)
These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website.
Functionality cookies (necessary)
These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and to remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region, where you left the application process before returning).
Analytical/performance cookies (optional)
They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and see how visitors move around our website when using it. This helps us improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily.
On an initial visit to the site, you will see a notice asking whether you wish to accept cookies. These are:
Initial visit: (Strictly necessary cookies)
These are set even if you decline (which puts them to 'false') as they're necessary to save your preference so that we know not to keep asking. They do not interfere with your privacy and are strictly for the above purpose only. No other cookies will be set if these are set to 'false' or not present.
Google Analytics: (optional)
Resetting your cookie preferences
You may reset your preferences at any time by closing your browser. This will delete any existing cookies set via our website and re-prompt you for your preferences when you revisit.
If you do not see the prompt (a large banner at the bottom of the page), please check you have disabled any ad blockers, as some block cookie notices (they can be considered an annoyance but are required by law to protect your privacy).
General Privacy / GDPR
Cardiff Outreach follows the rules and guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) 2016/679, which establishes a strong foundation of privacy by law.
We use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use our site. This information helps us determine factors for improving our website, such as which pages are popular, how we were found (e.g. Google search) and what devices are being used to view it.
No personally identifiable information is used for this (for example, IP addresses are anonymised before being stored by Google Analytics, making it impossible to identify the individual).
From time to time, we may share the anonymous, aggregated data with trusted Internet Marketing experts, where their service is to help us interpret it and improve upon our internet presence. It does not include any personally identifiable information, and we do not share data with any other third party for any other purpose. If, however, you remain uncomfortable with this and prefer to opt-out, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.
Use of your details
When contacting us and providing details, our Marketing department may contact you to assist with your enquiry, and from time to time may contact you with new information and discuss your future needs. If you do not wish to be contacted in future, please let us know during your enquiry or at any other time, and our Marketing team will ensure that your preference is respected (some data retention may be required to help keep track of the fact you have opted out of communication).
Under the Data Protection Act, you are legally entitled to request a copy of any of your data in our possession and may do so through any of our contact channels.
