This statement covers the services provided by the Mills Archive web site.

The data controller for this web site is Dr Peter King. The purpose of this statement is to inform users of the Mills Archive web site, which is managed by the Mills Archive Trust, about the information that is collected from them when they visit this site, how this information is used, if it is disclosed and the ways in which we protect users' privacy.

Cookie policy

When we provide services, we want to make them easy to use, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered through the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device (for example, your computer or mobile phone). These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you by, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so that you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so that you don't need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so that they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure that they are fast

You can manage these small files yourself. Learn more about them.

Cookies for improving service

Google Analytics sets cookies to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the web site and the volumes of usage. This helps to ensure that the service is available when you want it, and fast.
