The privacy of visitors to the London SE1 community website is important to us.
Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use visit this website and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We also carry third party advertisements on the London SE1 community website. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense service) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing London restaurant adverts to someone in London, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising.

However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as signing into forums or accounts.
