Like most website operators, the Inner Temple Library collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our websites. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Inner Temple Library also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify our visitors, anonymise wherever possible, and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with the Inner Temple Library in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use any of our online contact forms to provide an email address. In each case, we only collect such information as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Inner Temple Library. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

If you are a registered user of our Current Awareness newsletter or the Inner Temple Library newsletter and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you email to tell you about new services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the Inner Temple Library. We primarily use our News section to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
If you are a registered user of our Current Awareness newsletter and have supplied your email address, we will send you email in accordance with the newsletter’s schedule. This is usually an email every weekday at 12pm GMT.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
