Use of Cookies

This website uses cookies to improve the user’s experience while visiting the website. Where applicable, this website uses a cookie control system allowing the user on their first visit to the website to allow or disallow the use of cookies on their computer / device. This complies with recent legislation requirements for websites to obtain explicit consent from users before leaving behind or reading files such as cookies on a user’s computer / device.

Cookies are small files saved to the user’s computer’s hard drive that track, save and store information about the user’s interactions and usage of the website. This allows the website, through its server to provide the users with a tailored experience within this website. Users are advised that if they wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website on to their computer’s hard drive, they should take necessary steps within their web browsers security settings to block all cookies from this website and its external serving vendors.

This website uses tracking software to monitor its visitors to better understand how they use it. This software is provided by Google Analytics. The software will save a cookie to your computer’s hard drive in order to track and monitor your engagement and usage of the website, but will not store, save or collect personal information. You can read Google’s privacy policy here for further information. Other cookies may be stored to your computer’s hard drive by external vendors when this website uses referral programs, sponsored links or adverts. Such cookies are used for conversion and referral tracking and typically expire after 30 days, though some may take longer. No personal information is stored, saved or collected.

Events

When you book in to an event run by More Positive Me, we will take the data necessary to ensure you can attend and participate in the event, such as your name, email address, job title, dietary requirements and any access requirements. Unless you expressly tell us we can continue to communicate with you (such as by signing up at the event, or subscribing online to one of our mailing lists), we will only use your data to send you reports issuing from the event you have attended. We will retain your data for approximately one year after the event unless you have signed up to receive any ongoing communications from More Positive Me.

External Links

More Positive Me aims only to include safe and relevant external links on our website; however, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website. More Positive Me cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note they click on external links at their own risk and this website and More Positive Me cannot be held liable for any consequences or damages caused by clicking links to any external websites.
