Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

About Us

In this Privacy Policy, references to ‘we’ or ‘us’ are to Wessex Archaeology, a company limited by guarantee registered in England, no. 1712772 and a Registered Charity in England and Wales, (no. 287786) and in Scotland, (Scottish Charity number SC042630).

Information you provide

When you submit an online information enquiry we only collect:

  • Your name
  • Your company name
  • Your contact information in the form of an email address

This is so we can provide you with relevant information on the service you are interested in or to give you advice as requested. We will not pass on your details to any third-party unless you give us permission to do so. 

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we endeavour 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 every reasonable endeavour to ensure its security on our systems.


How we keep your information secure

Wessex Archaeology takes appropriate technical and organisational steps to ensure the security of relevant personal data. We have implemented security measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:

  • unauthorised access;
  • improper use or disclosure;
  • unauthorised modification.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis.

How we use cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information. This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.

When someone visits www.wessexarch.co.uk we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.

We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
