Privacy Policy

We have revised our privacy policy to ensure that we comply with the new GDPR regulations

Who we are

The Sussex Steam Engine Club Ltd is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our members and visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that we are not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes - we just don’t do that sort of thing.

But for your reassurance, in this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information and how we use it.

Website Cookies

We use cookies on our websites for a variety of reasons which you can learn about below. The cookies we use do not store personally identifiable information nor can they harm your computer. We want our website to be informative, personal, and as user friendly as possible and cookies help us to achieve that goal.

By using our website, you agree to the use of cookies and other technologies as set out in this policy. We appreciate some users may like more individual control over their visit to our website and can adjust their settings accordingly. You can read all about this in the section below "How to control and delete cookies". If you do not agree to such use, please refrain from using the website.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file and holds a certain amount of data, which our website can send to your browser. It may then be stored on your computer's hard drive and can be accessed by our web server. This cookie data can then be retrieved and can allow us to customise our web pages and services accordingly. It is important to clarify that cookies do not collect any personal data stored on your hard drive or computer.

How do We Use Cookies?

We use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make (and do not allow Google to make) any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Google Analytics may also place cookies on your machine. Please read their privacy policies to ensure that you’re comfortable with the manner in which they use cookies.

To enrich our website content, sometimes we may embed video content from other websites such as YouTube or Facebook - as a result, when you visit a page with content embedded, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. We have no control or liability over these cookies, so you should check the relevant third party's cookie policy for more information.

How to Control and Delete Cookies?

We will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you. However, should you choose to disable, reject or block our cookies, some parts of our websites may not function fully, or in some cases, our website will not be accessible at all.

For more information on how to control your cookie settings and browser settings, or how to delete cookies on your hard drive, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Mailing Lists

Unless you have opted out on your membership form  or if you subscribe to our mailing list service, we collect personal information. We use that information for four reasons:

To update you on forthcoming events and other items you’ve asked us to tell you about.

To contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information.

To check our records are right.

To check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied.

We do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

You can unsubscribe from general mailings at any time by emailing us at webmaster@sussexsteamengineclub.co.uk (Please title the email ‘Unsubscribe’).

Access to your personal information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold, simply email webmaster@sussexsteamengineclub.co.uk with details of your request.

Changes to this Privacy Notice

We may have to review our privacy notice from time to time in order to ensure that we comply with the most up to date legislation.
