Your online privacy is very important to us and we want you to have control over any personal data we collect
Like most websites, we collect data about you and your device as you browse and interact with the pages on our site. Some of this data is collected automatically by cookies, and some of it is collected only when you perform certain actions such as sending us a message or subscribing to our newsletter.
You have control over the data we collect about you. This page explains exactly what data we collect, why we collect it and how you can request for it to be removed.
We collect data about you when you perform certain actions on our website. None of the personal data we collect is sold or passed on to third parties, and we only ever ask for the minimum amount of personal information necessary to perform each action.
Unless otherwise stated, all of the data we collect is stored on our UK web server which is provided by Hyve, and on our mail servers which are provided by Hyve and Gmail. Some data may also be included in periodical backups of our website and databases which are stored on Google Drive and Amazon AWS.
The contents of your message and any information you include (such as your name and email address), plus your IP address, will be stored on our mail servers. Messages are stored indefinitely so they can be referred to from time-to-time as required, for example to see if we've had any previous correspondence with you.
We may also store your information on Hubspot which allows us to attach notes and perform other actions related to your message.
Your name, email, comment text and IP address will be stored on our web server. We use this data to identify you as a contributor to our blog, and only the name you enter and your comment text will be published on our website. Your data will remain on our web server indefinitely unless we remove the comment or the post that you've commented on.
Your name, review text and IP address will be stored on our web and mail servers until your review has been moderated by our internal team.
If your review meets our moderation criteria, your name and review text will be published on our website and your data will remain on our servers indefinitely. We may also send the company you've reviewed a copy of the review if they've signed up to receive such notifications.
If your review does not meet our moderation criteria, we'll delete it from our web server.
Your email address will be stored on our web and mail servers. We'll store this information for as long as you remain subscribed to receive our newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any newsletter.
You are entitled to request a copy of any personal information we hold about you, or for your personal information to be removed from our servers. You can find details of how to contact us on our contact page. Please be aware that requests may be subject to:
