The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to ensure that we interact with you in line with current data protection legislation such as the Data Protection Act 1998 and in accordance with your wishes.

What Information Do We Gather?

In common with most websites we have access logs which gather anonymous information indirectly. These logs record a user's IP address and browser and are aggregated to produce summary information. This allows statistics about the popularity of the website to be compiled. Log files do not contain any personal information. DCA reserves the right to store this information indefinitely.

Browser Detection

We detect the browser that the user is using for the purposes of tailoring the content to suit the features of, and to deal with the bugs in, different operating system, browser type and browser version combinations.

Website accessibility

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience including those with sight, audio and motor impairment restrictions.

Browser support

The site is built in a flexible manner and scales to ensure readability on whatever device or browser it is viewed upon. Browser support is progressive meaning more capable browsers may get improved aesthetics or functionality, yet content is still accessible on older browsers.

Visual options

Users browsing on a desktop computer with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Opera will find that they can scale/zoom the entire page, including images, by holding down Ctrl and toggling the +/- keys. Mac users need to use the Apple Cmd key in conjunction with +/-.

Users still using older browsers versions will find that they can resize the text only using the same key combinations.

Scale/zoom options can also be accessed via each browser's context menu.

Users browsing on mobile and tablet devices can scale and zoom the content using opposed digits dragged across the screen in the conventional manner.

Structure

The site has been developed using headings, paragraphs, lists and other HTML (HyperText Markup Language) to create a logical and semantic document structure.

Occasionally errors do slip into the HTML mark-up, either via human error or input mistakenly into the content management system. If you find a page which does not validate or has display errors, please let us know which page the error is on and we will endeavour to fix it as soon as possible.

Javascript and dynamic elements

Alternatives to scripts or other controls which rely on client device capability have been provided.

Context

Where possible, all hyperlinks use descriptive and meaningful text as a call to action. Short-hand language, such as click here has been avoided. Additionally, meaningful alt attributes and/or titles have also been added to all images where appropriate.

A written style that is straightforward and understandable has been employed throughout the site.

Navigation

A standard layout and navigation structure is maintained throughout the site. Screen reader users can skip the main navigation and return to the head of the page using the links supplied.

Site map

A site map has been provided that can help you navigate around the site. A link to this is available on every page of this website.
