The policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations & requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore the way this website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy.
In a nutshell
No personal information is collected or saved.
For more detailed information as required by EU Cookie law please read below:
This website and its owners take a proactive approach to user privacy and ensure the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users throughout their visiting experience. This website complies to all UK national laws and requirements for user privacy.
This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitors use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. Note the deliberate emphasis of anonymous, as no personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information on this website.
The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google – not me. This information is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for this site only.
Contact & Communication
Users contacting this website and/or its owners do so at their own risk. Any information supplied is kept private and stored securely until a time it is no longer required or has no use, as detailed in the Data Protection Act 1998. Every effort has been made to ensure a safe and secure form to email submission process but we advise that use of the form to email is at users own risk.
Information supplied will never be passed to any third parties.
Users are advised adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned on this website.
The owners of this website cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website. Users should therefore note they click on external links at their own risk and this website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages caused by visiting any external links mentioned.
Adverts and Sponsored Links
This website does not contain any sponsored links or adverts.
Social Media Platforms
Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms are subject to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies held with each social media platform respectively.
This website uses social sharing buttons which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question. Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons that they do so at their own discretion and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page respectively through your social media platform account.
Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate / engage upon them with due care and caution in regard to their own privacy and personal details. This website nor its owners will ever ask for any information through social media platforms.
A click on a social “share” button will result in a third party tracking that activity – such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ etc. Unfortunately, there is no way around this if you wish to share content socially.
My advice – set your browser to always block 3rd-party cookies. Content will still work, but no visitor data will be sent sent to a 3rd-party.
