Cookies

A cookie is a data file that certain websites write to your computer’s hard drive when you visit such sites. A cookie file can contain information, such as a user identification code, that the site uses to track the pages you have visited. EESW/STEM Cymru uses cookies solely to track user traffic patterns throughout the EESW/STEM Cymru website. We use this data on an anonymous basis and we do not correlate this information with personal data of any user.

Most website browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to display a warning before accepting a cookie, or to refuse all cookies. However, if you choose to disable the receipt of cookies from our website, you may not be able to use certain features of the site.

Our partners to which we provide links may also use cookies, over which we have no control. Such cookies (if used) would be downloaded once you click on advertisements on our website.

Use of Your Information

The information that we collect and store relating to you is primarily used to enable us to provide our services to you.

We have recently been granted funding from the European Social Fund through the Welsh Assembly Government for STEM Cymru. It is a requirement of the European Commission that the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) collect equal opportunities data on those benefiting from the Structural Funds Programmes in Wales. This data will only be used for statistical purposes to monitor the performance of the scheme.

In order to participate with us we request contact details (for example name, email address) and personal information (for example date of birth, gender, and ethnicity). In addition, we may use the information for the following purposes:

i. To provide information about further strands we offer that may be of interest to you.

ii. To contact you for any feedback or comments about your experience in participating in any of our strands, or for statistical monitoring purposes.

iii. To provide statistics of equal opportunities to WEFO and our partner Careers Wales for monitoring participation with us.

When you are visiting an area of the EESW/STEM Cymru website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with EESW/STEM Cymru as well as business partners and vendors providing hosting and other services for us. If you do not want your information to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer of your information by not using that particular service. These parties, as well as advertisers who contract directly with a third-party service to serve their advertisements, may set their own cookies.

Photographs

EESW/STEM Cymru may make use of your photograph from time to time solely to reflect the activities undertaken throughout the schemes. If you choose not to allow us to use your photograph on any promotional publications or the EESW/STEM Cymru website please do not hesitate to contact us. We will not use any personally identifying information (i.e. name, date of birth, email etc.) alongside any photographs.
