1d Google Analytics
When someone visits shaunpearce.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
When visitors leave comments or reviews on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
As part of the registration process for our website and/or mailing lists, we collect personal information. We use that information for a number of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, Amazon Web Services, to deliver our emails. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see the AWS privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by contating us directly.
Shaunpearce.com processes personal data both as a processor and as a controller as defined under the EU The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, and UK Data Protection Act. You may request a copy of the data we hold on you at any time by contating us via the contact form.
