You can block or remove cookies in the browser. Blocking cookies may prevent you from accessing online services from GO Wales. Removing cookies will log you out of an existing session. Find out how to block and manage cookies at All About Cookies.
You can use the "incognito" or "private browsing" mode in your web browser to restrict the type of cookies that are set and how they are used to track. This creates a fresh session and you will look like a new user unconnected to other sites, for example social media sites will see you as a signed out user (unless you explicitly login to them) and Google Analytics will see you as a new visitor.
GO Wales is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We want to provide a safe, secure user experience. We will use our best efforts to ensure that the information you submit to us remains private, and is used only for the purposes described below. The following policy reflects our commitment to you.
In general, we gather information about all of our users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access the most. We only use such data in the aggregate, without reference to individuals. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for our users. We may share this information with our partners, but only in the aggregate, so that they too may understand how visitors make use of the GO Wales site.
In some instances, such as when you register with GO Wales, we may need more specific information about you such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc. We may use that information to contact you.
We do not disclose information about your individual visits to GO Wales, or about personal information that you provide such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, to any outside parties except when we believe the law requires it. But we may record and share aggregated information with our partners. It will be used for internal administrative and statistical purposes and possibly could be scrutinised as part of an EU or National Assembly for Wales audit. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Any feedback that is submitted through the GO Wales web sites becomes the property of GO Wales. We may use this feedback, such as success stories for example, for marketing purposes. In this instance we may contact you for further feedback.
If we decide to change our privacy commitment for GO Wales, we will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about GO Wales privacy commitment, please feel free to email us. If you have any concerns about these issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
