Website Privacy Policy

Here at w3dL we take matters of data protection and privacy very seriously. This page explains our position regarding data that we may collect via our websites, primarily https://www.w3dl.com, http://www.w3dl.com and http://www.w3dl.co.uk. If you require any additional clarification or reassurance, then please email us at: dataprot@w3dl.com.

Our website also links to external websites outside of our control. Please contact the administrators of these sites or see the relevant pages on these external websites for their position(s) on matters of privacy. We have no responsibility to the other, external or third party websites that we link to and any links should not be taken as any endorsement of these sites.

The Types of Information We Collect

The data that we collect through the website falls into three categories:


1. logfile data: Everytime someone loads a page at our website, this is recorded by our ISP. This data is made available for analysis in order that we can analyse the traffic to our site. No personal data is logged during this process, it is information about the type of computer making the request, where it is located, IP address and similar.

2. Form data: From time to time, we may add pages to our website that request personal information from users. For example, to register for an event, or to add oneself to a mailing list. If you have added yourself to a mailing list or have volunteered information previously that you wish us to delete or destroy, please contact us at: dataprot@w3dl.com.

3. Cookies: In order to improve the operation and functionality of our website we use cookie technology. We explain this more fully in the "Cookie Policy" section below.


Cookie Policy

For certain functionality and auditing reasons, we use cookie technology. Cookies are small text files that are left on your computer's disk and that may be read by ourselves during your current visit, or when you visit again. We prompt users before attempting to do this, with the exception of one particular cookie (cPrompt_useCookies) which records whether or not users wish to have cookies left on their devices.

Cookies can help us respond to your personal preferences. By leaving and then re-reading our cookies, we can use them to make our website behave as it needs to.
We use Google Analytics cookies to identify what pages and routes through pages are being used on our website. We only use this data for analysis.

The following list is a list of the cookies that we utilise on our main website:


_utma: This is a Google Analytics cookie. It typically holds a randomly generated number and it expires after two years.
_utmb: This is a Google Analytics cookie. It typically holds a randomly generated number and it expires after thirty minutes.
_utmc: This is a Google Analytics cookie. It typically holds a randomly generated number and it expires when a browser session is stopped or exited.
_utmz: This is a Google Analytics cookie. It typically holds both a randomly generated number along with information about how the site was navigated to. It expires after six months.
cPrompt_useCookies: This is a cookie that records whether the user is happy for us to store cookies. The use of this is mandatory (unless a user disables cookies) as it controls the more widespread use of cookies.
cPrompt_hide: This is a cookie that is set when a user decides to accept cookies. It then prevents users from seeing the same opt-in message on every visit to our site.
