Marketing information collected by this website

This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:

Site visitor tracking

This website uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. Google Analytics is a web analytics service that tracks and reports website traffic. We use this information, to understand how users find and interact with our web pages.  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. 

Google Analytics makes use of cookies. If you disable cookies on your internet browser, this will stop Google Analytics from tracking any part of your visit to pages on this website.  You can also download the Google Analytics “Opt Out Browser Add On”. This will prevent Google from using your data.

If you choose to use our contact form on our website contact page none of the information you supply will be stored by this website or shared with any third parties.   Data is sent from the website using Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).  Our server is protected by an SSL certificate.  SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.

You can remove yourself from the list by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in MailChimp emails that we send you or by requesting removal from us, when requesting removal by us via email, please send your email using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.
