Privacy Policy


We respect your right to privacy. We ask that you read this Privacy Notice carefully as it sets out details of the information that we may collect from you and how we may use and also how we protect the information that you provide us with as a result of using this website.

Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified as a result of using this website, it will only be used in accordance with this privacy notice.

We keep our privacy policies under regular review and we will place any updates on this web page. This privacy notice was last updated on 10/07/2018.

Who we are

In this Privacy Notice, references to ‘we’ or ‘us’ are to Archaeology Wales Limited, a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales, no. 7440770.

Archaeology Wales Ltd collects, uses and is responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

The personal information we collect and use

Should you contact us having visited our website we may ask you to provide information about yourself.

This is so we can provide you with relevant information on the service you are interested in or to give you advice as requested. We will not pass on your details to any third-party unless you give us permission to do so.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we endeavour to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make every reasonable endeavour to ensure its security on our systems.

How we keep your information secure

Archaeology Wales takes appropriate technical and organisational steps to ensure the security of relevant personal data. We have implemented security measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:

  • unauthorised access;
  • improper use or disclosure;
  • unauthorised modification.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis.

We do not make, and do not others to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations and this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of these third-party websites.
