Visitors to Our Website
PLRB Web servers automatically recognize the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors to our sites. PLRB collects aggregate information on the dates and times people visit our sites, IP addresses, pages visitors accessed or visited (note: PLRB does not always know which exact pages were visited by particular individuals), operating systems and Web browsers visitors use to access our sites, and the sites that refer visitors to us (e.g., search engines). For purposes of improving search results, PLRB will examine search terms and query results plus satisfaction data.
PLRB also uses Google analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. This service identifies the number of visitors to various parts of the PLRB websites. This information is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone. PLRB does not make and does not allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting the PLRB websites.
PLRB uses a third-party web application firewall to help maintain the security and performance of our website. The service checks that traffic to the site is behaving as would be expected. The service will block traffic that is not using the site as expected. To provide this service, the system processes site visitors’ IP addresses. The data is saved for a limited time.
The purpose for implementing all of the above is to maintain and monitor the performance of our website and to constantly look to improve the site and the services it offers to our users. The legal basis we rely on to process your personal data is article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which allows us to process personal data when its necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests.
As we are processing your personal data for our legitimate interests as stated above, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data. There are legitimate reasons why we may refuse your objection, which depend on why we are processing it.
