Visitors to our website
When our website at www.posib.co.uk is visited, we use Google Analytics (a third party service) to collect details of visitor behaviour patterns and standard internet log information. This is done so that we can find out how many visitors our site has and which parts of the site they visit amongst other things such as how long they stay on the site. The way we process this information does not identify anyone and we don’t try to find out the identity of anyone visiting our website. We don’t allow Google to do that either. If at any time we want to collect information via our website that could identify somebody, then we will be clear about that. We will make it clear whenever we do so and we will explain what we are going to do with the information.
