Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

IP Addresses

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information. For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using cookies. 

Cookies

Like many other websites, The Murgitroyd Foundation website uses cookies. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by a web server to your browser and stored on your hard drive. They allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They are typically used to collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual.

We have purposely designed our website in such a way that we have no need to use any first party cookies (however, third party cookies are used) to ensure you have an ideal browsing experience.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a free web analytics service offered by Google. It offers the tools to measure site traffic, performance, and understand how people use our website. No personal or sensitive information is kept on Google Analytics.

We use it to collect information about how our website performs, how our users navigate through and use the website. This helps us improve our content and website performance.

Tracking

“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our site beyond our basic Google Analytics tracking.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
