Completing an online form.
While browsing our website you may choose to fill in one of BBG’s online forms, in order to obtain further information, provide comments on our services or to make an on-line Event Booking. You will know that we are collecting this data because you enter it voluntarily onto our forms.

Downloading Reports and Documents.
When you download a report, the system will record your IP Address, the number of the report you downloaded along with the date and time of the download and if you’re logged in as a member, your membership number.
What is a Cookie?
When you enter the site your computer will automatically be issued with a Cookie. Cookies are small text files which identify your computer to our server.

Cookies themselves only record which areas of the site have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long.
Users have the opportunity to set their computer to accept all Cookies, to notify when a Cookie is set, or not to receive cookies at any time, although this of course means that personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and your experience of BBG website may not be as good.
Even assuming you have not set your computer to reject cookies, you can browse our site without giving us any personal data.
