LGBT London is for LGBT Londoners and LGBT groups and organisations to network and voice their views. The Consortium of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Voluntary and Community Organisations ("The Consortium") currently provides technical and administrative support for this site.
The Consortium is committed to safeguarding the privacy of visitors to this website; this policy sets out how The Consortium will treat your personal information.
What information does The Consortium collect?
The Consortium may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation);

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
The Consortium may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on this website. The Consortium will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. The Consortium will use the persistent cookies to: enable this website to recognise you when you visit.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
