Use of 'cookies'

Like many other websites, our website uses cookies. 'Cookies' are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise you when you visit.

When you visit our website, we collect your IP address, the device you are using (e.g. computer, tablet or phone) and your geographical location.

We use this information for statistical purposes to help us understand how to make the website easier to find, easier to use and to improve the information we offer.

It is possible to switch off cookies by changing your browser preferences. Most browsers allow you to turn off cookies. To do this, look at the 'help' menu on your browser.

16 or Under

We are concerned to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under‚ please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide us with personal information.
Keeping your information safe
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that appropriate technical and organisational controls are in place to protect it.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) may be transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems using encrypted transfer, storage and backup.

Transferring your information outside of Europe

The information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). For example, our email and backup servers may be in a country outside of the EEA. You should be aware that these countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites run by other organisations. This policy applies only to our website‚ so we encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you access those using links from our website.

In addition, if you linked to our website from a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the privacy policy of that third-party site.

Your rights

Under UK data protection law, you have certain rights over the personal information that we hold about you. Here is a summary of the rights that we think apply:

  • Right of access: you can contact us to find out what personal information we hold about you.
  • Right to have your data corrected: you can ask us to correct information we hold about you.
  • Right to have your data deleted: you can ask us to delete information we hold about you. We are happy to do this in principle, but will not be able to do this if it required for contractual or legal reasons. If we can’t delete it, we may be able to anonymise it.

If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us:

Post: Nature Reserve Burial Grounds Ltd, 8 Welchman Place, Tysoe, Warwick CV35 0SU

We may need to ask you for further information and/or evidence of identity. We will then aim to respond fully to your request within one month. If we are unable to do so, we will contact you with the reason for the delay.

If you are unhappy with our response, you can make a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Changes to this policy

Any changes we may make to this policy in the future will be posted on this website so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you're happy with any changes. If we make any significant changes we will make this clear on this website.
