Visitors to LMETB websites

When someone visits an LMETB website, standard internet log information and visitor behaviour patterns may be collected. LMETB may do this to gather information on the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. In the event that this information is gathered on an LMETB website that you visit, this information will be collected in a way which does not identify anyone.

LMETB will not retain your personal data for longer than required to comply with the purpose for which you gave it to us.  Any personal data which you provide to an LMETB website will be used in line with the purposes for which you provided it (e.g. to contact you and answer any queries which you have raised in the “Contact Us” form that may be available on the LMETB website or to address any other feedback requested) and after this purpose has been completed, your data will not be further retained.
