Workman sometimes collect anonymous information when users visit our site, which helps us to provide you with a better website experience and service. For example, we keep track of which domains people visit from and we monitor visitor activity on the Workman website. We always do this in ways which keep the information anonymous.

The information collected is used to help keep the website useful and usable for our visitors. This includes measuring the number of visitors to different areas of our site to keep track of which pages users appear to find useful and which they don’t and monitoring what devices users are accessing the website with to ensure that it is as usable as possible on those devices.

One way in which this information is collected is through the use of ‘cookies’. A cookie is a small text file that a website can send to your internet browser which may then be stored on your computer’s hard drive.

The Workman website uses cookies to help us with user experience and anonymous visitor metrics; some of these are third-party cookies set by Google Analytics (GA). We use GA to gather the types of anonymous visitor information described above. We also use GA in combination with site search data to identify how often our content is searched for and accessed. This allows us to improve our existing content and find gaps where new content is required.

Workman do not use this information to target advertisements and we do not pass any data to third parties.

Our website will function without GA cookies, so if you would prefer them not to be used, you can click the tab ‘Privacy Notice’ and turn off all analytics. Alternatively, you can find out how to disable GA cookies in your browser at About Cookies (http://www.aboutcookies.org).
