We take your privacy seriously.
We at the British Street Food Awards guarantee our commitment to respecting and protecting your online privacy.
This includes your need and your right to know what we do with the personal information you share with us. It also guides our company’s policies regarding the management of this data, including how the information is collected, processed, and for what purposes.
Watch this video by ICO for a detailed explanation of the new EU law on cookies which came into effect on 26th May 2012.
The list below describe the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for.
First Party Cookies
Set directly by this website.
Google Analytics are used to collect visitor behaviour data for this site only. This helps us see what sections of the site are most popular so we can continually improve the content we provide. For instance, I may also move items higher up on the menu bar, depending on popularity.
We collect data on the pages you visit; time spent on the site; how you got here and links you clicked. The data collected is not tied to personally identifiable information. No personal data (e.g. your name or address) is collected or stored that identifies who you are.
Third Party Cookies
Cookies used by services set by other sites.
These are the ‘sharing buttons’ which are used to allow you to help spread the word about the Street Food Revolution by sharing content amongst your social network. Currently we have sharing buttons for Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest.
To connect these buttons to the relevant social networks requires scripts from domains outside this website. Check the policies of each of these sites to see how your information is being used and how to opt out or delete such information.
Most emails we send you, have no tracking at all. Other emails, such as the British Street Food newsletter can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We do not use this information at a personal level(there are too many!), rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of our email newsletter which you can do via the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the newsletter we email you.

I think that covers everything. However, if you wish to have further technical clarification, please contact myself, Richard Ambrose (BSFA’s website designer) at email@example.com
