Visitors to our Website

When someone visits the WGC website, we use a third-party service, 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.

Newsletter Sign Up

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information (name & email address). We use that information to tell you about things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check occasionally that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, 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. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
