3.0 PERSONAL info THAT THIS web site COLLECTS AND WHY we tend to COLLECT IT
This website collects and uses personal info for the following reasons:
3.1 Site Tracking
3.2 Contact forms and email links
Should you opt to contact us via our contact form, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to be processed by any third party data processors defined in section 6.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes called SSL) which means that the e-mail content is encrypted using, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our native computers and devices.
3.3 Email newsletter
If you choose to join our email newsletter, 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 can stay among MailChimp info for as long as we have a tendency to still use MailChimp services for email purposes or till you specifically request removal from the list. You can do that by unsubscribing from the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we have may send you or by requesting removal to us 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. While your email address remains among the MailChimp info, you may receive periodic newsletter-style emails from us.
4.0 HOW WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
As mentioned in section three.2 above, if you submit a comment to a blog post published on this website some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This is only scenario where personal information may be kept on this website. In the near future we\’a0aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored key before it could be used, in any way shape or form, to identify any said individual. Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which most web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as the opportunity arises.

- Data we process
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you. We have collated these into groups as follows: Your identity includes information such as first name, last name, title, date of birth, and other identifiers that you may have provided at some time. Your contact information includes information such as billing address, delivery address, email address, telephone numbers and any other information you have given to us for the purpose of communication or meeting. Your financial data may include information such as your bank account and payment card details.

Technical data includes your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website. We may aggregate anonymous data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Anonymous data is data that does not identify you as an individual. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal information in law because it does not reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate profile data to assess interest in a product or service. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal information so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined data as personal information and it will be used in accordance with this privacy notice..The bases on which we process information about youThe law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category. If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data. If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
- Information we process because we have a contractual/business agreement obligation with you
When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us. In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information. We may use it in order to:
- verify your identity for security purposes
- sell products to you
- provide you with our services
- provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website
- whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
- whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
- whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
- record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business
- responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
- protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
- insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk
- protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
6. Information we process because we have a legal obligationSometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information. 7. Information provided on the understanding that it will be shared with a third partyOnly if our website allows you to post information with a view to that information being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people then the following applies. Examples include:
- posting a message our forum
- tagging an image

Once your information enters the public domain, we have no control over what any individual third party may do with it. We accept no responsibility for their actions at any time.

If you complain about any of the content on our website, we shall investigate your complaint. If we feel it is justified or if we believe the law requires us to do so, we shall remove the content while we investigate. Free speech is a fundamental right, so we have to make a judgment as to whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content that offends you. If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.9. Information relating to your method of paymentFirst option: We store information about your debit or credit card or other means of payment when you first provide it to us. We store this payment information at your request in order to make repeat purchasing of services or products easier, or to make payment plans easier for you. [We also store it to help us prevent fraud.] We take the following measures to protect your payment information:
- We never add your payment details on our server.
