Collecting information

The standard Drupal logs used on the globaltoffees.com website collect a range of information on usage by all website visitors for the purpose of the monitoring of the website and to enable us to check and rectify any website errors.

The logs may record actions performed (e.g., searches), URLs visited, and IP addresses.

Data in these logs lasts for a limited period and is constantly overwritten so it is not stored long-term.

On average, the data lasts for approximately two to three weeks before it is overwritten.

Data in these logs is only accessible to globaltoffees.org staff or to organisations working on the globaltoffees.org website. In practice, the other organisations working on globaltoffees.org are our website developers.

For an authorised user (in other words, an globaltoffees.org member who is logged in), Drupal logs the date and time that you last accessed the website.

We also collect and store long term usage data using the site's internal system analytics.

This records data for URLs visited, numbers of page views, numbers of visitors and other related information, including IP addresses, and lets us monitor the usage of the website.

Data in these logs is password protected and is only accessible to globaltoffees.com staff or the other organisations working on the globaltoffees.org website as mentioned above.

We keep our web analytics data for several years so we can monitor increases or decreases in website traffic.

All the data we process and store on globaltoffees.org is purely for the running, functioning and monitoring of the website for globaltoffees.org's own purposes.

We do not use the data for any other purpose and we do not share the data with any third party beyond those organisations listed above working directly on the website.
