Users of EI websites
The EI’s main website - https://www.energyinst.org and our other websites - https://www.ieweek.co.uk, https://publishing.energyinst.org, https://knowledge.energyinst.org, https://toolbox.energyinst.org , https://safetyon.com and https://www.gplusoffshorewind.com and any sub domains thereof - are hosted by Squiz Ltd on behalf of the EI. These are referred to collectively here as “the Sites”.
Neither the EI nor any of its website hosts make use of your IP address, or other session information that is automatically captured by the web server, for any purpose other than system administration and to provide statistics that are used to evaluate the use of the Sites. The Sites make use of ’cookies’, which are small text files that contain a unique identification number written to a user’s hard disk and read by a server program. Cookies are used generally to keep a record of your details in order to recognise you the next time you visit.
Cookies are used on the Sites to collect information about visits to the Sites. They use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics sets cookies in order to evaluate your use of the Sites and compile reports for us on activity on the Sites. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the website. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form only. We have also implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising (Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting).
Google stores the information collected by the cookie on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By using the Sites, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ad Settings tool. As an added privacy measure, you can use Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
Use of the Sites does not require you to disclose personal information unless you choose to register with the Sites. Individual registration is required to elect and receive email notification services and updates; gain access to content through subscription services; gain access to restricted areas of the Sites; proceed with a PDF file download transaction; purchase hard copy items (eg books, DVDs).
You can amend or withdraw your consent at any time by simply clicking the personalized link at the bottom of any Toolbox update email.
