Privacy Policy

The Essex Autonomy Project respects the privacy of those that visit our website and subscribe to our newsletter. This notice sets out how we treat data collected from website visitors and subscribers.


Our website

When you visit our website, some information is collected about your visit: the IP address of the computer used to access the website; the date and time of visit; the pages visited; the address of the website the user came from; the operating system of the visitor’s computer; and the version and type of web browser used. Nothing else is collected.

This information is collected and processed in a way which does not identify you; it is compiled purely for statistical purposes, to give us a better idea of how people use our website and how we can improve it.


Our mailing list

We will only subscribe you to our mailing list at your request. When you subscribe, we collect a small amount of personal information, including an email address. We use this information only to contact you about news, upcoming events, and recent publications from the Essex Autonomy Project. We won’t contact you to try to sell you things, and we will never pass your contact information on to other organisations or businesses.

We use a third party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver news and updates to our mailing list. Through Mailchimp, we gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us understand what our subscribers are most interested in hearing about. For more information on this process, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.

You can unsubscribe to our mailing list at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our Project Manager at autonomy@essex.ac.uk.


Access to your personal information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our Project Manager at autonomy@essex.ac.uk.
