We store and record the details of users who access our website via Google Analytics. Cookies will anonymously record information such as a visitor’s location, age group, and gender, as well as the type of device used, which pages were viewed and for how long, inbound referrals (how a visitor reached our website), and links clicked. By clicking ‘Accept’ on the low banner when you visit our site, you agree to the placement of cookies on your device.

Data collected by our website’s cookies are stored for 14 months (Google Analytics’ minimum) and this information is not shared with any other parties during this time.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

NEWSLETTER

We operate an email newsletter program which we use to inform subscribers about Noisy Classroom news events, blog posts and other oracy-related information. Users subscribe through an online double-check process where they have given their explicit permission.

Our newsletter provider is Mailchimp and you can read their privacy policy here.

Newsletter messages may contain tracking becaons which relay data regarding engagement (links clicked), and already stored subscriber data.

Occasionally we may share subscriber data with like-minded organisations, however we will only do so if users have explicitly given their consent beforehand.

We will seek to re-establish consent from newsletter subscribers on a yearly basis.

EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS

Our email servers are encrypted and stored on password-protected devices. When interacting with individual users we may need to ask for personal data such as an address (to post mail) or telephone number (to discuss a workshop booking). However, that data will never be used for any other purposes without the explicit consent of the individual.

DELETING YOUR DATA

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
