I have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate my firm and continuing commitment to the privacy of personal information provided by those visiting and interacting with my web sites.
I hold the privacy of your personal information in the highest regard. The following discloses my information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.
I recognise the importance of protecting your privacy and my policy is designed to assist you in understanding how I collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide, and to assist you in making informed decisions when using my site. This policy will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and customers’ needs.
If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and my responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that I employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
Similar to other commercial web sites, my web site utilises a standard technology called ‘Cookies’ (see explanation below, ‘What Are Cookies?’) and web server log files to collect information about how my web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my web site, and the web sites visited just before and just after my Web site.
How Do I Use the Information That You Provide ?
Broadly speaking, I use personal information for purposes of administering my business activities, providing the products and services you requested, to process your payment, to monitor the use of the service, my marketing and promotional efforts and improve my content and service offerings, and customise my site’s content, layout, services and for other lawful purposes. These uses improve my site and better tailor it to meet your needs.
Furthermore, such information may be shared with others on an aggregate basis. Personally identifiable information or business information will not be shared with parties except as required by law.
Occasionally, I may also use the information I collect to notify you about important changes to my website, new services, and special offers I think you will find valuable. You may notify me at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing me at the link provided on the newsletter.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
How Do I Use Information I Collect from Cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by my Web Server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the pages you request) can be sent to you.
Sharing and Selling Information
I do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that can uniquely identify a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that I collect online and maintain in our database by emailing me at the usual address.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when I, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights. I may also disclose account information when I have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating my Terms of Service or to protect the safety of my users and the public.
What About Other Web Sites Linked to Our Web Site?
I am not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from my website or the information or content contained therein. Often links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of my website.
My Commitment To Data Security
Please note that your information will be stored and processed on my computers in the United Kingdom and the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United Kingdom or the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your country of residence or citizenship.
To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, I have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information I collect online.
