I respect your online privacy: you have a right to know what happens to the personal information you may share on this website. Please read on for details about how this information is collected, processed, and for what purposes.

“noreenblanluet.co.uk” refers to these web pages. By accessing this website, you consent to the way information is collected and used, as described within this Privacy and Cookie Policy. In return, the personal data you provide will only be used in ways that are compatible with this Privacy and Cookie Policy.

Collection of information
Every time you log onto the website, your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on the server. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. This technology is not used to get any personal data against your knowledge or free will (i.e., automatically recording e-mail addresses of visitors); or for any other purpose, apart from monitoring traffic to the website, or (in case of criminal activity or misuse of information) to cooperate with law enforcement.

A number of different cookies are used on this site. (If you don’t know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then www.aboutcookies.org is a good place to start for guidance.)
The list below describes the cookies used on this site and their purpose. According to the EU ePrivacy Directive, this website operates an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that it is assumed that you are happy with this usage. If you are not, there are a few options for you:
// don’t use this site,
// delete the cookies once you have visited the site,
// browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.)

First Party Cookies
These are cookies that are set by this website directly: Google Analytics is used to collect information about visitor behaviour on the website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This
Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of the site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. noreenblanluet.co.uk does not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its Analytics service, right here.

Third Party Cookies
These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons that allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies are currently set by Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and a few others (see the ‘share’ bar under the blog posts). In order for these buttons to work and connect to the relevant social networks, there are scripts from domains outside of the noreenblanluet.co.uk website. (You probably already know that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website. Check the respective policies of each of those sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.)

Hope this clarifies things somewhat! Thanks for reading.
