Links to other websites

The Made Up Leeds website may contain links to other websites of interest. This Privacy and Cookie Policy only covers use of the Made Up Leeds services and therefore we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information you provide when you visit sites we link to. We advise when visiting other websites that you exercise caution and check the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

In addition, if you came to our Service via a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies of the owners or operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third-party site.

How is data collected on the website?

Information may also be gathered through the Service without you actively providing it, using various technologies and methods such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and cookies. These methods do not collect or store personal information.

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so youcan access the internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address can only be traced back to your ISP or the large company or organisation that provides your internet access.

We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to the Service, and to administer and improve the Service.

Web statistics

We may use log files generated by our web servers to analyse site usage and statistics, but the files do not identify any personal information. Log file analysis helps us to understand the usage patterns on our website and make improvements to our service.
