What is stopping me pasting this text?

I do voluntary work for a charity.

At the charity I tried to copy information from the webpage click here and paste it into Word but could not do so. However, I have been able to do so using my laptop at home!

Any ideas as to what might be stopping me doing so at the charity?

I have just tried it with no problems.
Is paste greyed out when you try

Was "Word" already running before you copied from the website? I have experienced a problem where launching Word actually causes the content of the clipboard to be lost.

It could be a firewall - Word tries to access the Internet when you copy and paste from a website.
