Our web hosting provider keeps logs of connections to this site so that we can detect and prevent malicious activity. The logs contain your IP address (which can reveal your geographical location), the date and time of your connection, the pages you’ve visited in what order and for how long, and the browser you’re using (which can reveal the device you’re using as well). We make no use of this data on an individual level unless the traffic looks like an attack, in which case we will block the connection.

Site traffic logs are kept for 3 months then deleted. If we’re investigating suspicious activity then we’ll keep the traffic logs for the time period until the investigation is over.
