As of May 26th 2012 the UK Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations came into force.

Under the regulations scopac.org.uk is required to make available information about all cookies we use on our website, including those set by external tools such as Google Analytics.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files placed on your computer's hard drive by websites, they help websites to analyse web traffic or recognise your computer when you visit a particular site.

Cookies can allow web applications to tailor content to suit your needs by remembering your likes, dislikes and preferences - such as the way sites like Amazon and eBay suggest items that you might be interested in based on what you have looked at previously.

Cookies can also be used to track the number of visitors to a website, the time they spent on the site and the pages they looked at.

Cookies we use

We use cookies to see how people are using our website, such as which pages are being viewed and how often. The tool we use for this is called Google Analytics.

The information gathered by Google Analytics helps us to improve our site and tailor it to our customers' needs.

Google servers automatically record the page requests made when you visit our site. These “server logs” typically include your web request, Internet Protocol address*, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes, we cannot recognise you from the records we hold and cannot access your computer or any information about you. You can find out more about the tool we use for this and how it works on the Google Analytics website.

We also link to other sites which may or may not use cookies in order to track usage and provide you with a better web experience.

*Internet Protocol (IP) address

Every computer connected to the Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country from which a computer is connecting to the Internet.
