Privacy & Cookie Policy


We’re not talking about your favourites from the biscuit tin!

We mean cookies which are a small file sent to your computer or mobile device. These tell us that you’ve used our website before.

How we use cookies

Our site sends the cookie and uses the cookie number to recognise you when you return to Openminds in Calderdale or go from page to page. Only the site that has sent a cookie can read it and use it. This cookie file is stored on your computer or phone. All websites can send a cookie to your browser (for example Chrome, FireFox or Internet Explorer) if your browser allows it. Many websites do this to measure how popular their site is and how it’s being used.

Server statistics/log files:

Like almost all websites, we have access to server statistics. It is important for us to collect and monitor this information. We will use this information to analyse page visits to check popular pages and improve the site in response to usage. The server statistics are not designed to collect any individually identifiable information and the reports we receive are generally numerical and in graph format.

Alongside the server statistics, our Content Management System collects information on popular search terms used on the website. This allows us to arrange our pages better. We also store visitor path information to help us with future design considerations. In addition to this we analyse download popularity (numerical by month), which we use to organise the file libraries better.

External sites

Our website contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices within any of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements on other websites you visit which collect personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies only to this website. We won’t be collecting any information on how often these sites are visited.

Use of Data

We may automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information, however your personal data, including email address, will not be held by this website.
