We take your privacy very seriously, and this is intended to explain our policies and procedures designed to ensure that it is properly protected.
If you provide us with your email address when you add an entry to our Guest Book, it is included in the Guest Book in an obfuscated format to hide it from email address harvesters.
From our Guest Book you may also ask for your email address to be put onto our mailing list to allow us to send you news about Magna Carta. Your address will only be used for this purpose, and will not be passed on to any other party or individual. You may ask at any time for your address to be removed from our distribution list, and this request will be honoured as soon as is practical, at which time it will be deleted from our records.
We use a session cookie for counting purposes. A session cookie is a small piece of information created in your computer when you access our web site, and which will disappear when the browser session terminates. The information stored contains no details about you or your computer (the cookie name is magnacarta, and its value is always 0).
We also use a PHP-generated session cookie when you access the Add Entry to Guest Book page. This is simply used as part of our efforts to prevent our Guest Book from being spammed (the cookie name is PHPSESSID, and its value will be a randomly generated sequence of characters).
If you have any concerns or questions about our privacy policies or procedures, please contact the webmaster.
