Ridley Hall is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals who visit our website. This policy is limited to pages within the Ridley website. Our pages may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices on other websites.
This policy is intended to describe how your personal information is processed and used. Please note that by visiting and using www.ridley.cam.ac.uk, you are accepting the practices described.
- Visitor Information
Every computer connected to the Internet is provided with a domain name and an IP Address. When a visitor requests a web page from within the Ridley Hall website, our hosting servers automatically identify and log the HTTP request that is made.
This information reveals nothing personal about you. In fact, the only information that we automatically gather and log is as follows: the IP address of the site that may have referred you; your IP address; the web page that you may have linked to us from, if any; the product identifier for version and make of browser (e.g. Internet Explorer 8); the operating system platform that you may be running (e.g. Macintosh or Windows); search words or terms that are passed from a search engine (e.g. Google or Yahoo).
Ridley Hall finds it helpful to examine visitor traffic so that we can ensure maximum compatibility for the various browsers and operating systems that visit our site. By analysing visiting patterns, referring URLs and search engine terms, we can enhance our exposure across the Internet. For more information about the statistical data that is collected visit www.google.com/analytics.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
- measuring how many people are using services so they can be made easier to use
- analysing anonymous data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make it better
