Footprints Privacy Statement

Footprints respects your right to privacy. This statement describes the privacy practices for the Footprints website and the use we make of information collected from the site.

What information do we collect?

Automatic Information

The Footprints website collects such information as the IP address (location of your computer on the Internet) and what pages were accessed. Monitoring traffic helps Footprints determine the activity on our website and which pages are most popular, and allows us to develop and improve our services online and also check for abuse or 'hacking' attempts. Logs are automatically deleted after six weeks.

The website uses 'cookies' for the following purposes:

Personal Information

Our site has a form allowing you to contact us to request more information about the club. To help us to answer your question we ask you to supply your name, email address and area. You are under no obligation to provide such information. However, if you should choose to withhold it we may not be able to contact you to provide answers to your enquiry.

Footprints is an unincorporated club, and holds and processes personal information only for the purposes specified in para 2(2)g of the Schedule to The Data Protection (Charges and Information) Regulations 2018 (SI 2018/480). It is therefore exempt from the need to register under the Data Protection Act 2018. Nevertheless, the club is required by law to comply with the Information Assurance requirements of the Act and is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation. Any queries relating to this legislation should be directed to the Webmaster.

Sharing Information

We do not share any information collected through this site.

Information Transmission

Information to and from the Footprints website is encrypted in transit and cannot be intercepted by any third party - your browser will display a 'padlock' symbol on the URL bar to show that this is the case.

Links to third party sites

Our site contains links to other websites. Although we do check these links from time to time, Footprints is not responsible for the accuracy, content or the privacy practices of third party websites.
