Log files and analytics

Log files allow us to record visitors’ use of our sites. They enable us to make changes to the layout of the sites and to the information in them, based on the way that visitors move around them.

Mailing lists

What data do we collect?

When you subscribe to our mailing lists we necessarily record your email address. You may also choose to give us your name. We also collect your subscription preferences, which may include your preferred email format and details of which lists you are subscribed to.

We use a specialist third-party service provider to administer our mailing lists. Information you provide in relation to mailing list subscriptions will be held securely on their servers, which may be physically located outside the European Union.

We will only use your personal information to send you updates from the mailing lists that you have joined.
