3.0 Personal information that this website collects and why we collect it
How this website collects and uses personal information:
3.1 Site visitation tracking
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. We are using GA in ‘anonymized’ form so that Google does not record your full IP address. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see below).
3.2 Placing an order
We request information from you during the ordering process. To buy from us, you must provide contact information such as your name and an invoice and delivery address. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you. Your payment is processed by our third-party payment provider (PayPal), and the information you supply to them is used to make the transaction. We never have access to your financial information (such as credit card details).
3.3 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using an email link or our web form, none of the information that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors mentioned. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us.
Our web form uses the ReCaptcha service from Google to helps protect the website from spam, bots and abuse. Depending on your web usage and history, this may be visible (via a tickbox or quiz) or invisible.
The activity and user information reCAPTCHA collects and analyzes to determine whether you are human or a bot includes the following:
- Typing patterns of the user
- The amount of mouse clicks a user has done on the site or touches on an app
- What language the user’s browser is using
- Google cookies that have been placed on the site
- The answers to question fields on the site
- CSS information
- Plug-ins installed on the browser
By submitting a form on our website, you are agreeing to ReCaptcha using this information. For more information about the Google services and their privacy policies, please visit the link in Section 6 below.
