4.Privacy Policy
As you use this web site, you may be asked to provide personal information by entering it on a web page, and submitting it to the SLS by clicking a button or link (this includes discussion boards and membership application forms). Generally, this information will be requested to help us provide a service. However, whenever you enter such information on a web page, the Society has legal obligations to you about the ways in which it may use and store the data you provide. We will treat that data in accordance with current legislation and aim to follow best internet practice. The data will not be supplied to anyone outside the Society without your consent unless required by law, and when stored in a database, this will be in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

5. Information We Gather
When you access a web page, information about your usage is automatically collected. This will usually include your operating system, browser, IP Address (a number, assigned to your computer to identify it on the network), the pages which you browse, the referring page that led you to the current page, your software and aspects of its configuration. This information is available to web service administrators. Some of this information is also automatically included in feedback e-mails sent from the SLS web site, but does not represent the passing of any additional information to us (and is used to help us resolve any technical issues related to your use of the site). You are not personally identifiable as an individual from such information alone. However, the SLS may be legally obliged to release this information to appropriate authorities.

6. Cookie Policy
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information on the usage of websites. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. Cookies can help a website to arrange content to match your preferred interests more quickly. Most major websites use cookies. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you. The SLS may gather some information about your browsing actions through use of cookies. These may, for example, modify the page to reflect preferences you have set (for example, a text-based version of the site for users of text readers). The cookies in themselves do not identify you, just the computer used and some simple information about its interactions with our web sites - and only then as session cookies. They can only be read by users of your computer, and the servers which host our site and which issued the cookies. You may manually disable cookies on your computer, or delete existing cookies. You may also be able to view the cookies already in your system. The way in which this is done will depend on your browser, but advice will be available on the web (please consult the appropriate web site for your browser). Cookies are essential to the effective functioning of our website. We use them both to control how various parts of the website function, and in places to control access. In the case of the former no individual specific data is collected. However, in the case of user access cookies may record various transactions, for instance remembering you on future visits. If you disable cookies, a number of important functions and services will be unavailable to you and our websites will not operate correctly in your browser. The SLS does not allow third parties to serve cookies via its site or use web beacons. The SLS uses Google Analytics to better understand how browsers navigate to and through our websites, how long visitors spend visiting our content items and how often they return to visit our websites.

7. Secure Payment Pages
The Society's online payments are processed by World Pay PLC, part of the Royal Bank of Scotland PLC group and PayPal. The World Pay server software encrypts information, ensuring that Internet transactions stay private and protected. Your name, address and credit card number - plus everything else about your payment - cannot be read by a third party as the information travels securely from your computer to the World Pay/PayPal servers. Indeed, the Society has no access to the information relating to your credit card which is seen only by World Pay and PayPal.

8. Accessibility/Web Standards
The SLS website has been designed for both accessibility and functionality.
