3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

We only collect personal information data that is relevant to the purpose of our website. This information allows us to provide you with a customised and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information from our users:

3.1 Site Visitation Tracking

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We do this to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and help us to build a better service.

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 records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider GA to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).

GA makes use of cookies, for more information on the types of cookies GA is using on our website see section 4.0 below.

3.2 Email Newsletter & Competition Entry

If you choose to join our email newsletter (and enter one of our competitions) the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. We consider MailChimp to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.

Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.

If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter or entering our competition.

While your email address remains within the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic (approximately every couple of months) newsletter-style emails from us.
