Types of data we collect

Website cookies

Like many other websites, the Matrix Risk Control website uses cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they ‘remember’ and allow a website to recognise a user’s device. 

Who do we use cookies?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. More information about cookies is available at http://www.allaboutcookies.org and http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.

Types of cookies

We may use both persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close it. Session cookies are temporary; once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Google Analytics

When someone visits the Matrix Risk Control website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. 

Mailing lists

As part of the registration process for the Matrix Risk Control e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't share our email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer John Richardson on .

Booking data

When you book training courses through Matrix Risk Control or online, your name, address details, email and contact number will not be stored in an online booking system. Please be assured that we do not share your personal details with any other company without your consent.
