Information Collection for tracking and customisation – Cookies

In order for my website to function properly and to provide you with a better user experience, it is necessary for it to use Cookies.  A Cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer by a website, to allow your browser to remember information about your last session on that website. Your computer only shares information in the cookie with the specific website that provided it, and no other website can request that information.  Visitors to the website who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browser preferences to refuse cookies before accessing our website; although the website may then not work properly.

Information Collection for tracking and customisation – Analytics

My website may use third-party analytics services (like Google Analytics and the Facebook Pixel) to gather the above information for analysis and re-targeted advertising.

My use of your data

I will use your contact details to communicate with you via direct email correspondence or respond to queries etc as needed.  I will not use them to send any newsletters or marketing info unless you also sign up to my newsletter.  I keep all emails from clients for three years, in case of queries or to see prior quotes for work etc.  I keep any invoices for seven years for accounting purposes.

Security

My website is built with WordPress, and hosted by One.com has an SSL certificate and uses all their other modern security technologies to keep your information safe.  My computer is password protected, and has up to date firewalls, anti-malware and security measures.  I will follow this privacy notice and my data protection policy and use reasonable measures to store your data securely.

Your Rights

You have the right to ask for a ‘Subject Access Request’ to see all the data I hold on you.  I will provide you with a copy of this, will correct any mistakes in the information, and delete it on request if I am not required to keep it by law for a certain period of time (eg. Accounts information).  You have the right to complain to the ICO if you think there is a problem with the way I handle your data.
