Privacy — using our website and online systems

The information we collect and how we use it is governed by different legislation depending on whether you're using our website or one of our online systems.

We use Google Analytics on our website to help us analyse how visitors use the site. Google Analytics uses 'cookies', which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and information about how people use our site. This information is collected in an anonymous form and does not identify you.

The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics' cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google. This information includes the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer – the unique number the internet uses to identify and connect with your computer. This is not the same as your email address and is not linked to any personal information about you.

OSPRI uses Google Analytics information to determine how many people use our website and subsidiary websites. This helps us improve our online services and information to better meet your needs. For example, we can identify how many users visit a particular page and what pages of information they may visit. Google provides this data to us without identifying individual users.

Google's privacy policy

We don't use statistical analytics tools to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from visitors to our site. Google does not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Accordingly OSPRI will not associate any data gathered from this site with any PII from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information using a fill-in form on our website.
