Privacy Policy

We have two privacy policies – one for when you browse our website, and one if you sign up for our email news.


For our email news:

We don’t give out any details at all about our email news subscribers to anyone unless required by law. This website uses HTTPS (a secure encrypted connection) to ensure your data remains private. It is only accessible by Hunter Geophysics staff.

For our website:

Third parties, including Google and Facebook, may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information about your web browsing behaviour from this website and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide measurement services and targeted advertising. Users can opt-out of the collection and use of this information for advert-targeting; please see or for details. These terms are required by the Facebook Pixel service.

Why do we do this?

We recently (May 2016) installed Google Analytics and the Facebook Pixel systems onto this website. Google Analytics allows us to count the number of unique visitors to the website (it’s essentially a glorified hit-counter); the Facebook Pixel allows us to track how many users view specific parts of the website. For instance, as of May 2016, we are using the Facebook Pixel to measure the number of Facebook users who click on our Facebook adverts and then sign up for our email newsletter.

Other uses of cookies

We also use a simple cookie to track whether or not you have already voted (via the thumbs-up/thumbs-down system shown throughout the website), in order to prevent you from voting twice.
