We recognise the importance of protecting your privacy. We collect the minimum details necessary in order to provide alerts.
Email addresses subscribed to our email alerts will be kept private and will not be sold. Emails are sent only to notify subscribers of:
- times when aurora is likely to be visible from the UK,
- major changes and improvements to the service.
To prevent malicious subscriptions all requests must be confirmed, we will not manually subscribe email addresses. If you wish to unsubscribe from our email alerts please use the automated service. If you are having difficulty unsubscribing please contact us.
For security purposes we log details of connections to our web servers. These details include IP address, date, time and page requested, type of web browser and referring page. This information is used to manage the service (e.g., detect bad links and missing pages) and to investigate any misuse of the service.
Cookies and local data storage
Local data storage is similar to cookies but the data remains stored on your computer. We use this feature so that your browser can remember which messages (NEED LINK) your computer has read and other related settings. The saved information remains on your computer and is not transmitted back to AuroraWatch UK.
