Like most website operators, ewrm.org.uk (Enfield Whitewebbs Railway Modellers hereafter referred to as EWRM) collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. EWRM's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how EWRM's visitors use its website.
EWRM also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. EWRM does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Certain visitors to EWRM choose to interact with EWRM in ways that require edvss.org to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that edvvs.org gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use add a comment on a post to provide a name and email address.
In each case, EWRM collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with EWRM. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, like providing a comment on a post.
All of the information that is collected on ewrm.org.uk will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Third Party Links
EWRM may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, identifying how many times a particular page or post is viewed, or report on which newsletters are the most popular, based on data gathered. However to achieve this edvvs.org does not utilise any personally-identifying information.
