Privacy Policy

Privacy

Erewash Valley Wildlife respects your privacy.

Any personal information you provide to us including and similar to your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of Erewash Valley Wildlife.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small data text file that is placed in your browser and allows Erewash Valley Wildlife to recognize you each time you visit this site (FOR customisation etc). Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information, and Erewash Valley Wildlife does not use cookies to collect personal information. Cookies may also be used by 3rd party content providers such as newsfeeds, usage tracking sites or advertisers (see below). We like to think that the cookies use on Erewash Valley Wildlife are fairly innocuous but thats for you to judge.

Advertisers

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

DoubleClick DART cookies We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, The DART cookies may also be used by us for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). The cookie is used to serve your specific ads and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The ads served are to be targeted on the basis of your previous browsing history (For example, if you are viewing sites for visiting Las Vegas, you may also see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as a hockey site). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”, which does NOT track your personal information, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You have the option to opt-out of this ad serving on all sites, using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, it can affect your ability to interact with our site as well as other websites and it may include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless, you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

Anonymous tracking software

We use Google Analytics (just like virtually everybody else) a service provided by Google. They gather anonymous data of how people are using this site and then provide us with visitor statistics, details of page views etc etc. You can think of it as being a bit like CCTV but one that automatically blurs your face so we can see what people have done, bit not who. If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (we’d prefer you didn’t though as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website).

Other cookies

There’s so many great free toys you can add to websites these days and rarely can we resist – anything from Twitter buttons to software that powers blog comments. Collectively they make our website more interesting to you as a site visitor (and hopefully beloved customer). Sadly most of these come with cookies – that’s the “price of free”. So hand’s up, there are more third parties tracking data on this site than we would like and each of them are setting cookies as you surf this site. They are:

- WordPress
- Facebook
- Twitter

WordPress is used to build this website and so it’s cookies are fairly essential to use the site and make sure it functions properly. We are working hard to work out what the other cookies for other tools do but we are pretty confident that they all collect data anonymously unless you are already logged into their service. They probably just collect details of pages visited, anonymise it, aggregate it with several thousand or million others people’s anonymous data and then look at pretty graphs. In many cases the cookies are used to generate identical information to Google Analytics (see above) and indeed use Google Analytics, so opting-out of Google Analytics will also opt you out of these cookies too. We are working to find out more about each of the cookies used.

If you have any views on the cookies we are using, we would welcome your input!

Don’t want any cookies ever?

While we’d love to offer a cookie-free version of our site we are a small site and simply don’t have the resources to provide and maintain one. Unfortunately if you are really anti-cookie then there is no option except to not use our site or turn off cookies completely using your browser (though how the site will respond we can’t be sure). You can remove any cookies we have already put on your machine within your browser settings – pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete may work in many cases. We will be sorry to see you go!
