3. What information we collect on our website?
We collect the following information about you when you fill out our contact form on the contact page on our website. Your name, email address and any other information relevant to your enquiry is sent to us via email.
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. This site has the “anonymizeIp” option implemented, meaning your full IP address is never written to disk as explained further in Google Analytics documentation. We consider Google to be a third party data processor.
