cookieconsent_status

When a user clicks the "GOT IT" button on the cookie notice, a cookie is set to remember that fact, so that the message isn't displayed on every page. It just has a value of "dismiss".

Service locator (https://www.ecl.org/our-locati...)

This can accept a full address if the user enters one, and precise location coordinates (particularly from mobile devices), which would capture personally identifying information, this is not saved anywhere outside of the users' own browser, or used for anything other than returning the requested locations in order of distance for that and subsequent requests to the service locator, in the same session.
