Visitors to our websites
When someone visits www.usha.org.uk we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting either our main website or our conference websites. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
The table below explains the cookies we use and why.
|Session||Various. Based on username, access level and timestamp||USHA only uses a session cookie which is dropped on your arrival at a Joomla site. It does no tracking and expires when the session ends. If you login it drops a further cookie to enable the login and allow the use of logged in functions. It cannot be used for tracking either and expires quite quickly unless the session is kept alive.||More information can be found in Joomla documentation. docs.joomla.org/|
