Cookies are not those lovely biscuits you might want to nibble away at with a coffee or cuppa tea to hand, but sadly small text files passed on from our website to your device’s internet browser (a device being a PC, laptop, smartphone , ipad etc and an internet browser being Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera etc).
If you visit this website, I will assume you consent to the placing of cookies in your browser. If you do not consent to this, I kindly ask you to discontinue viewing this website and delete www.ng24web.co.uk cookies from your browser. If cookies are disabled in your browser, you can then view our website cookie free but it, and other websites you visit may not function correctly.
2) Google Analytics
The analytical information we obtain is provided via Google Analytics coding which also sets cookies in your browser.
The type of analytical information obtained includes web pages visited, links clicked, time on page and how you got to our site (directly typing our web address or through a search engine) browser type, device used and city location etc.
I look at this information to ascertain which parts of the website are viewed, how often and from what geographical location. Ultimately this helps us figure out which content appeals to our website visitors and thus improve this website site. I seriously can’t tell that Mr Smith of 304 Albert Square, Ipswich has looked at the site, but I could see that someone in ipswich using BT Broadband looked at at my web design website page for 1 minute, using a Samsung smartphone with say a Firefox Browser.
No information on Google Analytics can identify a persons name or address.
3) Protection of Personal Data.
Like many businesses I hold information within hard copy records and computer files etc.
Any information sent to me, electronically or otherwise (be that your name , adddress, phone number, email address, image files, document files, contracts, invoices etc) is used and retained by me for a given period of time. I do not share or sell on any names, email addresses, information with third party businesses. All information received is used and retained for my stated business activities on this website and where necessary in order to comply with government record keeping and reporting requirements.
If you have previously sent in personal data that you no longer wish me to retain and use (i.e name and email address for mailings) I will on request delete such records, providing there is no legal requirement to retain such information.
Finally unlike my website, I am human so if you are in anyway concerned about how I or my website uses your data/ information please do get in touch and I will do my best to sort any issues you have.
