Privacy and cookies

This page contains some important information about your privacy when visiting our website, and in particular its use of cookies.

Like virtually every website in the world, our web server records every request for a web page that it receives. It records your IP address, the "user agent string" supplied by your browser, the page visited, and the date and time. This information is available only to the webmaster, is kept secure, and is not used for any purpose other than to get an overall idea of the traffic to our website.

Apart from that, CTC Cambridge collects no information about visitors to our website.

If you visit the main section of our website (all web pages starting with ctc-cambridge.org.uk or www.ctc-cambridge.org.uk) then may we store one cookie on your computer. If you specifically request the desktop or mobile version of our website (by following links to a specific version) then we set a cookie called "mode" to a value of "d" or "m". We use this to provide you with the same version the next time you visit the site.

If you visit the blog, rides list or right to ride sections of this website (all web pages starting with blog.ctc-cambridge.org.uk, rides.ctc-cambridge.org.uk and rtr.ctc-cambridge.org.uk) then you should be aware that these are actually Google blogs, hosted by Google. When you visit these parts of our website you are using a Google service. Google may collect and store information about your visit which may include sending cookies to your computer or device. Google have provided information about their use of cookies here.

Please also see the Google Privacy Policy and the Google Terms of Service.

The Google services that we use are the blogging platform Blogger (used to host the blog, rides list and right to ride sections of the website), the photo sharing website Picasa Web Albums (used to host the photos displayed on it), and Google Maps (used to display embedded maps). If you make a comment on our blog you may identify yourself using a Google account but this is not necessary.

The use of this website does not depend on cookies. If you configure your browser to disable cookies we believe it will work unchanged with the exception that your preference for a desktop or mobile version of the main site will not be recorded and the choice of which version to view will be made automatically depending on information supplied by your browser.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. If you'd like to find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, the following website may be useful: www.allaboutcookies.org.

One or two very old ride reports included embedded maps from organisations other than Google, including mapmyride.com and sanoodi.com. If you visit these pages they may place cookies on your computer or record your visit in some way. However it is our policy to use only Google maps where possible.

If, having read this, you'd like to ask us a question, please contact the webmaster using the contact information on the contact us page.
