We take the protection of your data seriously. Sometimes we need to collect personal data to provide the service you expect, and when we do, we will explain clearly what we’re collecting and what we intend to do with it.
What personal information we collect
When you fill in the contact form, the site securely processes and stores what you enter, and emails it to us. We use it to respond accordingly, archiving correspondence just like you would expect any responsible company to do.
When you contact us by phone, email or post, we will also use your contact details and personal information to respond appropriately and store and archive it securely.
When you ask us to do work for you we may ask you for personal information we need to do the work and liaise with you. Again, we will store and archive it securely, and delete it if appropriate when the work is complete.
When you visit this site, the server and site security software may process and store your computer’s IP address (which contains approximate location information) within the scope of the law, to prevent unauthorised access and ensure the site works as intended. The server deletes these logs after 4 weeks.
This site does not set cookies, except for users that log in to the site with a username and password.
How and where your data is stored
The site uses a securely encrypted connection to transfer any information you submit, and stores it in a database on the server, which is based in the UK. Backups are taken regularly which are stored, encrypted, on a Dropbox for up to 4 weeks. We use secure passwords to protect the data and do not share access with anyone except companies like my Web developer and host who are directly responsible for providing the services the site relies on.
Disclosing your information
We do not sell personal data to anyone. We only share personal information when it’s necessary to do what you have asked us to do, or if we are legally obliged to.
Access to your personal information
You have the right to know what information we hold about you. If you contact us and ask, we will be happy to:
- tell you what information we hold;
- tell you why we are holding it;
- tell you who it could be disclosed to;
- update it if it’s inaccurate;
- remove it (unless there’s a legitimate reason why we need to keep it); and
- let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.
