The Type Of Data That We Collect
When it comes to data collection, these are the types of data that we obtain through the methods described for each.
When you visit the website your IP address is collected. It’s collected via server logs, and via tracking and security plugins that we use.
The browser you are using will also be logged and collected. That way we know the IP address, and the type of browser that is being used (knowing whether people are visiting by desktop or other devices is important for optimizing a website for better experience.
We also collect data that you submit through a comment form or contact form. This is in the format of your comment or enquiry, email address, and name supplied.
How We Use Collected Data
Mostly, the data that is collected is used for analytical purposes. We use the data to look at how people visit the site, how they pass through it, and how they exit it. By using this data, we can better understand our best pages, and our worst. It helps us to optimize the site and provide better content.
We also use collected data to produce comments, and these are managed through an admin panel.
IP addresses also get used to help us spot spam and hackers, and to block those IP addresses from accessing the website. This is an important security function which keeps both us and our visitors safer.
Data is also used when submitted to us through contact form. That collected data is only kept for as long as we are dealing with the enquiry. It’s not stored on the server, it’s forwarded on to the email address of the site, and once we have dealt with, it’s deleted from our email account.
How Data Is Protected & Your Rights
It’s important to say that even the most expensive corporate websites cannot fully protect data or insulate themselves from hackers.
You are protected in that we do not store personally identifiable information. An IP address is not personally identifiable, unless it’s a static IP address relating to company or personal webservers.
We use industry-standard techniques to protect your data. Things like SSL to encrypt data, good passwords, keeping website software up to date, and sharing as little data as possible.
We also use standard security plugins and software to protect the website as much as possible. However, none of these measures can 100% guarantee us from intrusion, and you should not use this website if you are concerned about your IP address being discovered.
