Automatic collection of information
As with all websites, automatic, anonymous records of which pages are viewed are maintained. The logging system will also collect various other non-personal data (such as operating system, browser or other access technology used, and screen resolution from each visitor’s computer). The visitor’s IP address will also be logged, but will not be used to personally identify any visitor. This information will be aggregated together into anonymous statistical data only. The system will not collect any other data – and the data collated will remain the property of the WLGA and will be used solely for the purpose of maintaining and improving the website.
