Google Analytics’ Cookies
Every time a user visits our website, Google Analytics generates anonymous analytics cookies. These cookies can tell us whether a user has visited the site before. They can also tell us how visitors use the website. You can find out more information on Google’s data practices here.
We don’t sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we disclose the information to third parties, except where required by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies).
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
To be able to use certain areas and features of the site, specifically requested by you, we may require you provide us with information that identifies you personally. This information may include:
- Your name
- Your email address
- Your telephone number
- Your address
- Your company name
As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information.
We use a third party provider, Hubspot, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. All email newsletters contain instructions to unsubscribe from the mailing list. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to remove your email address from our mailing list at any time.
We will never sell or share your personal information to any persons or organisations except when required by law for the investigation of illegal or criminal actives, the exercise of legal rights or in defence against any legal claims, or otherwise.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
OWNERSHIP OF DATA
We retain all rights of ownership on our software, code, databases, designs and any other internally developed application to provide the Site and the Service. You retain all rights of your data posted on the Site.
HOW WE STORE DATA
We use external vendors and hosting companies to provide the software, hardware, storage, networking and other necessary technology required to provide the service.
CONTROLLING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We make every effort to give you access to your personal information, to allow you to correct any inaccuracies, or to remove your personal information at your request provided it is not required for genuine business purposes or by law to be retained.
We require you identify yourself and the information you request to access, remove, modify or correct before commencing such requests.

When we provide access to your personal information for the purposes of modification, correction or removal, we do so free of charge except where doing so requires a unreasonable effort.
