3.0 Personal Information We Collect And Why
This website collects and uses personal information as outlined below.
3.1 Site Visitation Tracking
Like a lot of websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interactions. We use this data to monitor the number of people using our site, to help to understand how they find and use our web pages, and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you, but Google do not give us access to that information. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to the pages on this website.
3.2 Contact Forms And Email Links
If you choose to contact us using any of the contact forms on this website or using an email link, 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 detailed in section 6.0. Instead, the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).
If you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
4.0 How We Store Your Personal Information
As detailed in section 3.3 above, if you submit a comment to a blog post published on this website (as yet there is not a hosted blog on this website) some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This is currently the only occasion where personal data would be stored on this website. This data is stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this website is built on (WordPress).
7.0 Data Breaches
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database, or the database(s) of any of our third party data processors, to all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
