Some services on this website require us to collect personal information from you. To comply with data protection legislation, we must tell you how we store the information we collect and how it is used. Any information you submit will be stored securely and will never be passed on or sold to any third party.


User anonymity and personal information

Log files are maintained and analysed to monitor website usage. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture your IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.

Aggregated analyses of these log files may be made available to WM2U staff to allow us to measure (for example) overall popularity of the site and typical user paths through the site.

We will not attempt to identify individual users. You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of WM2U.

We will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted. In the case of all users, we reserve the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of our web services.

As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for WM2U to use its access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access.

All log file information collected by WM2U is kept secure, and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.
