Changes to the privacy and cookies policy

We may change this policy from time to time. You should check this policy occasionally to ensure you are aware of the most recent version that will apply each time you access this website.

Google Analytics knows your IP so it knows location (eg Brighton) but it doesn’t know who a person is. It will take a guess at age due to other sites and adverts the user has clicked on. But it won’t have information about them personally. It won’t know who they are. So this wording is fine.

Sitelink (website host company) will keep the site as secure as possible and also we will have monthly maintenance and back ups for security.
