3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

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

3.1 Site tracking

Like many other websites, our 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 throughout 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. Google 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 makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website but you can also use our cookie preferences by clicking the option in the bottom right of your screen.

3.2 Contact forms

If you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or our quick contact link in the head of our website, none of the data that you supply will be passed to or processed by any of the third party data processors defined. Instead the data will be emailed and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our own SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
