Your privacy is important to you. It’s also important to me.
Isn’t it annoying when you get e-mails from somebody you’ve never heard of? And isn’t it infuriating when you’re half way through your evening meal and somebody rings and tries to sell you new double glazed windows? Or you get junk mail and you wonder where on earth they got your name and address from?
Firstly, this site runs software in the background which is used to tell me which country in the world it is searched from, which pages are looked at, and what the search words were. That way I can work out what you’re actually interested in!
There’s no user identifiable data available to me – and I don’t want to be able to identify anyone. There’s an EU ruling that came into play on 26th May 2012 about advertising on websites and the background collection of data that’s sold on elsewhere – it’s called the “Cookie Law”. If you don’t want me to collect this data, disable cookies on your browser.
There’s a whole industry out there harvesting data about the likes of us. You buy something, they ask for your address and the next thing you know, your information seems to pop up everywhere.
I will NEVER give or sell your data on. And I will never send you anything unless you agree to it. It’s not just about something called “Information Governance”. It’s the whole principle of it.
I will not store your email address unless you give me permission by opting into the newsletter. I use MailChimp to send my newsletters. Your email address will be stored via MailChimp who have a very clear policy on keeping your email safe.
You will be able to opt out of the newsletters at any time by using the link at the bottom of the Newsletter, or contacting me directly.
Here are some really useful links – two Government backed organisations who can help you stop that barrage of junk.
If you keep being sent junk mail and want to get it stopped you can sign up for the Mail Preference Service. You can click on the link to sign up. It takes two minutes. It’s absolutely free and it makes sending you junk mail illegal!!
And if you want to stop those annoying phone calls there’s the Telephone Preference Service. Again click the link to sign up. And again it’s absolutely free.
