Your privacy and the protection of your personal data are important to me. As of May 25, 2018, I have an obligation to collect and protect your data in accordance with new European standards for data protection. The goal of the new framework is to make sure that I deal with your data in a lawful, fair, and transparent manner, and that I take steps to ensure that your data are adequately protected.
I am limited to using your data under the following conditions: where you have consented to it, where I need to do so in order to fulfil any contract with you, or in certain special circumstances, such as compliance with legal obligations, or for other legitimate purposes.
Depending on how you use my services and my website, I may request data from you for a variety of reasons:
When you contact us using email, a contact form on our website, via social media, or by any other method, I shall use this information to reply to your message and to respond to your request.
My site collects data about visits to the site in order to optimise the site, as well as to promote security by checking for unusual activity, hacking attempts, and other potential threats. The data that is collected also facilitates internal operations such as troubleshooting, data analytics, and research and testing. Data about visits to the site are generally anonymous or pseudonymous. If you are logged into the website and have provided me with personal information, it may be possible for me to track your activity on the site.
Information collected for technical purposes may include which pages you have visited (including the date and time), which services and pages you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, files downloaded, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from a page, and other metrics related to your visit to our site.
I use Google Analytics to track visits to the site. More information about Google Analytics can be found on the Google Analytics website.
On some of the pages on my site you will see “social feeds” for services such as Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and/or other social media services. These services enable you to share, comment, or bookmark pages on our site.
Some pages may also include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website directly. You should be aware that all of these sites and services are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the Internet, including on my site. We recommend that you check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your personal information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such personal information if you should wish to do so at any time.
You have the right to determine how your data is collected and used by me. In particular:
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any aspect of this policy, wish to find out what data we hold about you, or would like to request the erasure of your personal data, please contact us using one of the methods outlined on our contact page.
