What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Cookies

Our website uses ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer when you visit a
website, to help us understand how our website is being used. Cookies don’t collect
personal data from your computer: they only collect data about your browsing. Some
cookies remain on your computer after you leave the website; these are called ‘persistent’
cookies. Others are deleted automatically when you close your browser, and others simply
expire. We use the following cookies on our website:

Analytics cookies and advertising cookies set by Google Analytics

We collect non-personally-identifiable information relating to your use of our site via Google
Analytics technology. This may include: which pages you see; how long you stay; what you
click on our pages; if you visit our website again; which country and city you are browsing
from; etc. This data is collected for the purpose of monitoring and understanding the
effectiveness of our website. We also collect data relating to the demographics and
interests of our users via Google Analytics and cookies set by Google advertising networks.
This data is used in aggregated form to help improve the site and Discover Materials’
communications.

To specifically opt out of Google Analytics cookies, visit

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you have registered for updates from us, your information is sent to our MailChimp account, and stored securely by MailChimp. We may also use the information you provide to help us with the planning and logistics of current and future Arise Sheffield activities.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that subscribe to updates from us, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. You can request a copy of this, or ask to make changes to the information, at any point. The Arise Sheffield team can also see that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have registered on our sign-up form, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Users who register for updates have their details stored in MailChimp servers, which are secure and GDPR compliant. Visitor comments left on the website may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

As mentioned above, we also send anonymised information to Google Analytics to track our website usage and performance.
