In common with many other commercial websites the Burlington Arcade website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site; this is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.
If you register to receive updates your information will be held on a secure server and the data will not be shared with any organisations outside Burlington Arcade. It will be used only to provide you with email updates on the topics you have requested or postal information if you request that service. If you respond online to a consultation exercise your data will only be used to facilitate the analysis of responses and will be deleted subsequently.
This privacy statement only covers the Burlington Arcade website at localhost/burlington-arcade.co.uk and subsequent sub-sites of that domain. Other websites linked to or from the Burlington Arcade website are not covered by this privacy statement.
