2 WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We collect name and contact details (such as email, address and telephone number) when you get in contact with us regarding a project. When visiting our website, we collect your IP address, data showing when you visited, which pages you looked at, information about your operating system, device and browser version. This data is gathered using commonly used tools such as cookies and web beacons.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. The cookies that we create are in place to enhance your experience of this website as well as providing core functionality for our visitors and customers. The only cookie that is used to collect data is the Google Analytics cookie. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit Google Analytics.
According to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) consent to store cookies is not required “for cookies that are essential to provide an online service at someone’s request” (e.g. to remember what’s in your online basket, or to ensure security). https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-pecr/cookies-and-similar-technologies/ All of our cookies fall under this exception. Therefore we are not required to gain consent before the use of the cookies on this site. This helps us tailor our communications with you and helps us only offer information, seasonal discounts that you would be interested in if you have chosen to receive marketing. It also informs us of some changes, for example when email addresses are no longer valid or mail has been returned, so that we can stop sending marketing.
