Privacy Policy

General

This policy explains what information we gather when you visit The Corporate Climate Communiqués website, and explains how that information is used.

It is important for you to appreciate that The Corporate Climate Communiqués website provides extensive links to other independent sites within the University and elsewhere. This policy applies only to direct accesses to The Corporate Climate Communiqués website. You will need to consult the appropriate information on other sites for information on their policies.

Any changes to this privacy policy will be posted on this page. It was last updated in November 2012.

Data Collected

In common with most websites, this site automatically logs certain information about every request made of it (see below for more details). This information is used for system administration, for bug tracking, and for producing usage statistics. The logged information may be kept indefinitely.

Relevant subsets of this data may be passed to computer security teams as part of investigations of computer misuse involving this site or other computing equipment in the University of Cambridge. Data may be passed to the administrators of other computer systems to enable investigation of problems accessing this site or of system misconfigurations. Data may incidentally be included in information passed to contractors and computer maintenance organisations working for the University, in which case it will be covered by appropriate non-disclosure agreements. Otherwise the logged information is not passed to any third party except if required by law. Summary statistics are extracted from this data and some of these may be made publicly available, but those that are do not include information from which individuals could be identified.

[You should appreciate that a log is a record of what a server sees, not necessarily what was initially sent. If a request is sent via a proxy the log file will show the proxy's address. If someone has forged your address the log file will show your address.]

A number of fill-in forms are provided on this site. The pages containing these forms include information on how data submitted on them will be processed and used.

Logging of additional data may be enabled temporarily from time to time for specific purposes.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site.
