Privacy policy

The Godalming Band website collects a small amount of information when you visit. This page aims to explain what information this is, and how we use it - in line with current EU privacy laws. We hope it’s informative, but if anything is unclear, please do get in contact.

Short version

  • We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  • Some 3rd parties like Facebook may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Facebook, YouTube and other social networks

These services provide videos, buttons and similar features which we use on our website.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

About this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your personal data, please write to us by email to band@godalmingband.org.uk or by post with the details on our contact page.

Many thanks to Silktide for their tools and lead in writing a privacy policy.
