The Research Companion takes your privacy seriously. We only ask for the information we need, and we’ll only use it for the purposes described below

What data we collect

  • if you use our contact form, any messages and email addresses you provide
  • your IP address, and details of which version of web browser you used
  • information on how you use the site, using cookies

We use Google Analytics software to collect information about how you use our site. This tells us:

  • the pages you visit
  • how long you spend on each page
  • how you got to the site
  • what you click on while you’re visiting the site

We cannot identify you through analytics information, and do not combine it with other data sets in a way that would identify who you are.

Data from other sites

We link to a few other sites to signpost advice, and share best practice. If you visit these sites, you will need to agree to their privacy policies.
