PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

Although Google Analytics records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. Google Analytics also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see relevant section below).

Google Analytics makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides. For your information our website uses the analytics.js implementation of Google Analytics.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website. Please check the relevant section below to learn about disabling cookies.

This information is only used to identify you as a contributor to the comment section of the respective blog post and is not passed on to any of the third party data processors detailed below. Only your name will be shown on the public-facing website although if the supplied email address is linked to a Gravatar account, your Gravatar photo will also be displayed.

Your comment and its associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to either 1) remove the comment or 2) remove the blog post. Should you wish to have the comment and its associated personal data deleted, please email us here using the email address that you commented with.

If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before posting a comment on our blog.

Contact Forms and email Links

Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or an email link like this one, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined below. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). We would suggest that you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or otherwise sensitive information within an email.

Mailing Lists

If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. We consider MailChimp to be a third party data processor (see relevant section below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.

Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.

If you subscribed to our website via an email signup form (Mailchimp), you can unsubscribe here.

All personal information associated with 1) sending messages using the contact form (see here) 2) data stored by Flamingo WordPress Plugin 3) opting in to our 3.1) sample box and/or 3.2) as a subscriber to our email promotion offers (we use Thrive Leads to collect the emails and Mailchimp to process sending the emails) or 4) comments submitted to a blog post published on this website (as detailed above in ‘Our Blog’ section) is stored robustly and conform to the appropriate best practices in security. At times, some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This data is currently stored in an identifiable fashion. In the near future we aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual.

Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as we are able to.

Key employees have access to our systems in order to provide essential maintenance and development activity.
