Privacy & Cookies

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, Power to Change, the Eden Project and Campaign Collective (the project partners) and its contractors have legal obligations towards you in the way that we deal with data collected from you. We keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so, or we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it.

We collect information from website visitors relating to:

  • feedback submitted to us
  • email services
  • site usage tracking

Feedback or information submission
If you provide feedback about the website or submit a registration/event information form, we will only use the information you provide to improve the site or to publish the specific details you have submitted. From time to time, we may seek feedback from visitors, which we will use to answer questions, resolve problems or improve their published information. We will not make your email address or contact details other than website URLs or social media channel usernames available via this website.

Email services
If you sign up to receive email updates about the issues discussed on this site, we will use the information you give us to provide the service(s) you have requested only. If you inform us that you wish to cancel your details will be deleted from our records.

Site usage
Like virtually all web sites, we store anonymised data on visits in server log files, which contain IP addresses of machines used to access this site, and the pages requested.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. We do this to make sure it’s meeting its users’ needs and to understand how we could do it better.

Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.

The following cookies (small data files created on your computer) are set by Google Analytics:

Cookies are also used elsewhere on the site, including by the content management system we use, WordPress. These improve things by remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page, log in or leave a comment.

Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish. To learn more about cookies and how to manage them, visit AboutCookies.org.
