Accessing David Dexter Associates website

As a general rule the website employs the notion of 'public access' and does not require you to login. Consequently, when you access the website you are not required to submit any personal information; however, in common with most web servers, certain anonymous data is gathered. For each visitor, our web server collects Usage Data* which is analysed and presented in statistical form; the type of information obtained includes: the number of page requests per week, domain names (e.g. .com, .ac.uk, .net), referring sites (e.g. Google.com, Yahoo.com), Browser summaries (e.g. the number of visitors using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape) and Operating System reports (e.g. the number of page requests made using Windows NT, Windows 98, Macintosh or Unix).

On occasion summary statistics may be disclosed to third parties, however, it is important to understand that the data doesn't provide any personal information (e.g. email addresses) and cannot be attributed to individuals. The primary purpose for collecting the information, which is used on an aggregate basis, is to improve the content and functionality of the website.

*Note: This data is protected from public access and can only be viewed and disclosed by authorized personnel.
