CES Website Privacy Statement

CES is committed to respecting the privacy of all individuals who use our website, communications and social media channels, in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

This policy explains what data we collect when you visit our website, when you subscribe to our communications, how we use that data and how you can opt out.

Our communications platforms

CES works with policy makers, statutory service providers, frontline practitioners and researchers.

We use our website to communicate about our work and to share resources and tools we produce.

If you sign up for our mailing list, you will receive our quarterly Ezine. From time to time we will use our mailing list to notify you about new resources, to seek feedback from you about our work, or to invite you to our events.

You can also subscribe to the weekly CES Knowledge Exchange.

What data do we collect on our website?

Our website uses cookies, small text files which are placed on your computer or device as you navigate a website. We use Google Analytics cookies to tell us about levels of activity on our website, for example which pages on the site are used more frequently. This information helps us to improve and enhance our website.

We do not collect any personal details about you using cookies.  Any of the data or information that we gather using cookies is anonymised and only used to help us improve our website. We don’t use it for other purposes, such as donations or advertising, and we won’t share this information with others unless we are legally required to do so. You can read Google’s Privacy Policy here.

Our website uses Social Sharing buttons, through the Add This platform. Add This allows people using our website to share content on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. To read more about Add This and their privacy policy click here.

Subscribing to our mailing lists

Similar to many organisations, CES uses a variety of third party platforms to support our communications. You can subscribe our mailing lists to receive updates about our work and give your consent to be notified about new resources that we produce. We use Constant Contact, a third party email platform, to share our Ezine, Knowledge Exchange and other communications.

When you subscribe to our mailing lists we ask you for your name, contact details and your area of work. Your data is held within these third party platforms. Constant Contact has its own security and privacy policy, which is separate to CES.

Constant Contact uses email tracking. Email tracking tells us when you opened an email and what links you clicked on. We use this information to improve our communications,  and include general information such as open and click through rates to inform communications planning and reporting.

How we protect your privacy

CES is committed to respecting your privacy. Your data may be held within third party platforms which we use, including Constant Contact, Mailchimp and Eventbrite. All of these platforms have published up to date privacy policies to comply with the GDPR.

Access to those platforms and your data is strictly limited to our communications team.  

Opting out

If at any time you decide that you no longer wish to hear from us you can unsubscribe from our mailing list. At the bottom of our Ezine or other communication, you will be given the option to unsubscribe. When you click on this option we will remove your name from our mailing list.

You can also adjust the settings in your browser to decline cookies. This may have an impact on your experience of our website. To read more, click here.
