Privacy Policy


This policy explains what information we gather when you visit The Breadsticks Foundation’s website, and explains how that information is used.

It is important for you to appreciate that the website provides links to other independent sites. This policy applies only to direct accesses to The Breadsticks Foundation’s website. You will need to consult the appropriate information on other sites for information on their policies.

Changes to this Statement

The Breadsticks Foundation will occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the ‘last updated’ date at the bottom of this privacy statement.

Data Collected

In common with most websites, this site automatically logs certain information about every request made (see below for more details). This information is used for system administration, for bug tracking, and for producing usage statistics. The logged information may be kept indefinitely.

Relevant subsets of this data may be passed to computer security teams as part of investigations of computer misuse involving this site or other computing equipment at The Breadsticks Foundation. Data may be passed to the administrators of other computer systems to enable investigation of problems accessing this site or of system mis-configurations. Data may incidentally be included in information passed to computer maintenance organisations working for The Breadsticks Foundation, in which case it will be covered by appropriate non-disclosure agreements. Otherwise the logged information is not passed to any third party except if required by law. Summary statistics are extracted from this data and some of these may be made publicly available, but those that are do not include information from which individuals could be identified.

[You should appreciate that a log is a record of what a server sees, not necessarily what was initially sent. If a request is sent via a proxy the log file will show the proxy’s address. If someone has forged your address the log file will show your address.]

An online enquiry form is provided on this site. The page containing this form includes information on how data submitted on them will be processed and used.

Logged Data

The following data is automatically logged for each request:

  • The name or network address of the computer making the request. Note that under some (but not all) circumstances it may be possible to infer from this the identity of the person making the request. Note also that the data recorded may be that of a web proxy rather than that of the originating client;
  • The date and time of connection;
  • The HTTP request, which contains the identification of the document requested;
  • The status code of the request (success or failure etc.);
  • The number of data bytes sent in response;
  • The contents of the HTTP Referrer header supplied by the browser;
  • The content of the HTTP User-Agent header supplied by the browser;
  • Logging of additional data may be enabled temporarily from time to time for specific purposes. In addition, the computers on which the website is hosted keep records of attempts (authorised and unauthorised) to use them for purposes other than access to the web server. This data typically includes the date and time of the attempt, the service to which access was attempted, the name or network address of the computer making the connection, and may include details of what was done or was attempted to be done.

Access to Personal Data

For the purpose of the UK Data Protection Act 1998, the ‘Data Controller’ for the processing of data collected by this site is The Breadsticks Foundation, and the point of contact for subject access requests is Tom Blount.

These other sites may send their own cookies to users to collect data or solicit personal information. This privacy policy only applies to the Website. It is not intended to apply to other Websites, which may have different privacy policies.
