The Inclusive Economy Partnership obtains this information by using technologies, including cookies, to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our website and to better tailor our website to your needs. For example, we may want to know how long the average visitor spends on our website or which pages get the most attention. Information such as this will only be used in aggregate form and does not identify you personally.

How your information is used

We do not collect personal information of those browsing the Inclusive Economy Partnership website, only those who provide their personal details and consent for us to process this for marketing purposes. We use information in aggregate form (your individual details cannot be identified) to audit usage of the site through cookies as outlined below.
