Log Files & User Anonymity
Log files are kept automatically by this site for all requests for files on the website’s servers. These do no capture any personal information but they will capture the user’s IP address.
This information is used for analysis of the performance of the website and to assist with future development. This analysis could be shared within the York Mystery Plays Supporters Trust (YMPST) and any partner agencies.
All log file information collected by YMPST is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.
We will make no attempt to identify any individual user’s identity from these log files unless there is reasonable suspicion of unauthorised access or illegal activity. However, access to web pages often results in log entries in the systems of your Internet service provider (ISP) or network service provider. These entries may identify a specific computer that has been used to access a certain page. Any such monitoring is done by the service provider but this is beyond the responsibility and control of the YMPST.
All users of this website must consent for YMPST to use these log files to track anyone who is reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access.
This website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.
YMPST uses Google Analytics to monitor traffic levels, search queries and visits to this website.
Google Analytics stores IP address anonymously on its servers in the US, and neither YMPST nor Google associate your IP address with any personally identifiable information.
These cookies enable Google to determine whether you are a return visitor to the site, and to track the pages that you visit during your session.
Data Protection & Confidentiality
Some services on this website require us to collect personal information from you. To comply with the Data Protection Act, we have a duty to tell you how we store the information we collect and how it is used. Any information you do submit will be stored securely and will never be passed on or sold to any third party.
