CONTACT DETAILS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION
Some forms on this website require users to submit contact details and personal information. This information may be held and used within the Gurdon Institute and/or the Administration Offices of the University of Cambridge (and in some circumstances external collaborators or co-organisers of events) for the purpose associated with those forms only. The Gurdon Institute will not re-use your personal information, and will not disclose it to individuals or organisations which are unrelated to the purpose of the forms. Your data will be deleted within one year after submission and/or the form's purpose has been fulfilled, unless you are the successful candidate in a recruitment exercise, in which case your data is required to be stored during and after your employment.
In plain English, The Gurdon Institute uses Google Analytics to learn about how many people are looking at our site, what pages interest you, whereabouts you are in the world, and how you found us. In order for us to do that, Google must record certain information from your computer and store it on their servers in the States. While this information may be able to be reveal personal information about you and your computing habits, Google have declared that they will not reveal this information to any third party unless specifically required by law.
WEB SERVER LOGS
We also store IP address (a network ID number which identifies your computer's location) data in the log files on our own web server, but this is not linked to personal information. Should we ever feel motivated to examine this data, it will be used for very general demographic purposes only as described above - it's useful for us to know the number of visitors to our website, and from which institutions and countries they're visiting.
