Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Automatically collected: When you visit and browse our website some data is automatically collected in logs to provide visitor statistics and some cookies may be set to remember useful information as you browse through our website.
Contact forms: We may from time to time use a contact form to help you get in touch with us. When you complete a contact form on our website the personal information you provide is collected for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry. Typically the form collects your Name, Company, Address (optional), Telephone Number and Email Address as provided by yourself plus your IP address plus date and time you completed the form.
When you speak to us by telephone or email, you may give us personal information about yourself.
To provide our website design and related support services: We use basic contact data to deal with your enquiry, service your requirements and deal with associated billing and accounting requirements.
To provide domain, website hosting and email services: Basic contact data (eg name, company, telephone and email address) may be kept as necessary within domain and hosting suppliers systems to support web domain, website hosting and email services. Currently we use www.123-reg.co.uk mainly for domain registrations and either www.heartinternet.uk or www.siteground.co.uk for website hosting and email services and mainly your details are recorded on each service (rather than ours) to reflect your interest and ownership of the domain/website/email account.
We do not keep customer, marketing or prospecting databases. We do not prospect for new clients but we may from time to time contact existing customers only with information relevant to them such as changes in Google or GDPR.
