St. Richard's of Chichester Parish Privacy Policy

Introduction
This policy covers the St. Richard's Parish, Chichester and the use of personal information that the Parish collects when you use the website strichardschichester.co.uk. The policy also gives you information about cookies.

Visitor Information
During the course of any visit to strichardschichester.co.uk, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a 'cookie', are downloaded to your computer. Many websites do this because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. You have the opportunity to set your computer(s) to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to you and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of strichardschichester.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse strichardschichester.co.uk anonymously until such time as you wish to register for strichardschichester services. For further information on cookies please visit www.aboutcookies.org.
