Collection and Use of Personal Information
You can browse our website without giving us any personal information. From time to time, we analyse traffic to this website in order to understand our visitors’ needs and to continually improve our site for visitors. We collect only anonymous, aggregate statistics. For example, we do not tie a specific visit to a specific IP address.

However, there are additional activities on our site that require you to be registered - for example, to receive our newsletter. As part of the registration process, we do collect personal information, which will only be used very selectively. Examples of this may be asking people’s opinion on issues or to check that our records are correct/that the newsletter is meeting their needs. By registering to receive the newsletter, we will automatically assume that you agree to receive additional information, from time to time.

We will only contact you if you have permitted us to do so. If you have changed your mind and would prefer us not to contact you, then you can opt out at any time. See 'Your rights', below for further information.

Use of Cookies
A cookie is a small text file containing information that websites store on your desktop computer, mobile phone or tablet to keep track of your visit. A cookie is not a programme and does not contain any viruses.

Here are some key facts around the use of cookies on this DAFC UK website:

  • Personal information is not collected in our cookies.
  • As mentioned above, the purpose of the cookies is to increase the website’s usability and for statistical purposes.
  • We use two types of cookies. ‘Session cookies’ are activated at the time of log-in or if you are switching from a mobile device to a desktop. They are deleted automatically when the browser is closed. Persistent (third party) cookies include Google Analytics (for statistics) and ‘Add This’ (for example, Facebook and Twitter). The Persistent Cookie expires within a given time period.
  • You can delete cookies stored on your computer at any time.
  • Cookies can be disabled by turning them off in the browser. However, if cookies are disabled, several functions cannot be used on the website.

Links to Other Websites
Our website contains links to information on other websites. On websites we do not control, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have any questions about how a site uses your information, you will need to check that site’s privacy statement.

Your Consent
By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of the information you provide to us as outlined in this Privacy Policy. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time and without notice, so you may want to check back occasionally. Any changes will be published on this page.

If you have any questions or concerns about our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, please email: Thank you.
