Privacy Notice

At Arika, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to our web site and subscribers to our e-newsletter and postal mailing list. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.

Visitors to Our Website

When someone visits we use two third party services, Google Analytics and Vimeo Stats (for videos in our archive), to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google or Vimeo to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. You can find more information on how cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy below.

If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

E-Newsletter Sign Up
