  • The date and time of visits
  • The number of pages viewed
  • The time spent on the site
  • The most popular sections of our site


This information is anonymous and no attempt will be made to identify visitors. So, for example, on a specific day we can identify that our site has had 1,000 visitors. However we know nothing about these visitors in terms of email addresses or any other personal information.

We will only ask for personal information from which you can be identified (such as your name, address, email address etc.) where the information is required for a specific purpose e.g. to reply to any queries or questions that you may have. This gathering of information is consistent with our normal work practices. All information provided to us by you will be treated with the utmost confidentiality in accordance with all applicable legislative and regulatory standards. If you ever decide that you no longer wish us to keep or use information or you want the information to be revised or updated, please feel free to contact us. We will remove or amend the information as appropriate in accordance with applicable legislative and regulatory requirements.

Submitting your credit card number

When you submit your credit card number to purchase merchandise from the on-line Archive Shop, we offer the use of a secure server. If you choose to use the secure server, the secure server software (SSL) encrypts the credit card information you submit before it is sent to us. This helps assure that the information is protected against unauthorised access.
