The SPARC Consortium runs this website.
The website uses traffic logs and cookies to identify which pages you visit or files you download.
This is not personally identifiable information; it is anonymised and aggregated information. We use the anonymised information to track, for example, which countries our website visitors are located in, and how long they stay on particular web pages. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website to tailor it to users' needs.
We use Google Analytics to collect this information. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. We retain your data on Google Analytics for 38 months. Read more about Google Analytics security and privacy principles.
A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
We do not share your data with anyone other than our newsletter service provider NationBuilder.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or disclosure is required by law.
SPARC is fully compliant with GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act 2018. We do look to see how many people are opening our emails but do not use this data to profile you individually.
We use a third-party provider, NationBuilder, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. NationBuilder provides more information on their services on its website.
