Privacy Policy

Here at Cambridge Econometrics we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it and how we keep it secure.

Who are we?

Cambridge Econometrics is a leading independent consultancy specialising in applied economic modelling and data analysis. The company is involved in work across UK, European and global markets and has offices in Northampton (USA), Cambridge (UK), Brussels (Belgium) and Budapest (Hungary).

The company is a trading subsidiary of a charity; the Cambridge Trust for New Thinking in Economics.

What type of information is collected from you and why?

We collect information about you when you visit our website, for example when you email us (see ‘Email Links’ below) via the website, when you leave a comment on our blog (see ‘Commenting on our blog’ below) and through our web analytics service (see ‘User journey tracking / web analytics’ below for more information about this).

The personal information we collect might be an email address, IP address and information about which webpages you have visited.

This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to understand how they find and use our web pages and to use this information to improve their journey through the website.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us.

GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you, but Google do not grant us access to this. You can read Google’s own privacy policy here.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

Should you choose to add a comment to any posts that we have published on our blog, the name and email address you enter with your comment will be saved to this website’s database, along with your computer’s IP address and the time and date that you submitted the comment.

Only your name and comment will be shown on the public-facing website, as well as the date and time that your comment was submitted.

Your comment and its associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to either: 1) remove the comment; or 2) remove the blog post.

Should you wish to have the comment and its associated personal data deleted, please email us here using the email address that you commented with.

If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before posting a comment on our blog.

NOTE: You should avoid entering personally identifiable information to the actual comment field of any blog post comments that you submit on this website.

Should you choose to contact us through an email link like this one, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website. Emails are sent and received using Microsoft Office 365. With Office 365, data is encrypted at rest and in transit, using several strong encryption protocols, and technologies that include Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL), Internet Protocol Security (IPSec), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, we would suggest that you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or otherwise sensitive information within an email.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
