Privacy Policy

Coffee and Connect is strongly committed to maintaining the privacy of your personal information. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site. The information we receive depends upon your actions when visiting our website.

Information Collected About Your Visit to the website
Coffee and Connect automatically collects and stores the following information about you when you visit our website:

  • The date and time the request was received.
  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address, or the proxy address of your Internet Service Provider (e.g. AOL, CompuServe, and so on).
  • The name and IP address of our server that received and logged the request.
  • The resource on our server accessed as a result of the request, such as the Web page, image, and so on.
  • The query in the request. This field captures any criteria or parameters issued with a query.
  • The name and version of your Web browser (e.g. Netscape 4.0).
  • The content of any sent or received cookie.
  • The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that was accessed before the user made a request for our web site. The URL may be an outside address that is not related to our site.

Some parts of our website may use a “cookie”, which is a file placed on your computer hard drive, that allows us to log the pages you use in our site and to determine if you have visited the site before. The cookie captures no personally identifying information.

We use this information to provide certain features during your visit to the website. You can set your browser to warn you when placement of a cookie is requested, and decide whether or not to accept it. By rejecting a cookie some of the features available on the site may not function properly.

Other than the automatic data collection described above, this site collects no personally identifying information. The sole exception is when you knowingly and voluntarily provide information, such as when you fill in your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number on the contact request form.

If you ask to go on our mailing list to receive our newsletter your contact details will only be used for this purpose; we never sell our mailing lists or pass on the information to other parties. The only exception would be if someone had met you at a Coffee and Connect event and wanted to get in touch with you about a specific issue.

You can unsubscribe from the Coffee and Connect newsletter at any time by using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the newsletter.

We use the information we collect for internal system administrative purposes to measure the volume of requests for specific website pages, and to continually improve our Internet site to be responsive to the needs of users. Your choice to use our website or to send electronic mail to Coffee and Connect will be considered your consent for us to use the information collected there from as stated in this notice.
