Your privacy is very important to us.

This website has a few fundamental principles that it follows:

Security

This website takes many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:

Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee 100% the security of data sent over the Internet, but as soon as we become aware of any security breach we will endeavour to let you know within 72 hours of the security incident.

Internal Communication

We use Dropbox, Gmail, and Letshost.ie web hosting Cpanel and webmail for internal communication relating to your correspondence with us. We treat your data with care and abide by our data protection policies.

Measuring our Visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. Like most website operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
We anonymise the data in Google Analytics – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect helps us understand what parts of our site is doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on.
Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better. You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish. Google Analytics data is automatically deleted 26 months after your last visit.

Contact forms

Our contact form was generated by Jotform.com. Jotform has a GDPR policy at https://www.jotform.com/gdpr-compliance. When you submit your data via the Jotform contact form it is encrypted and stored on the Jotform’s server. We view your information using a special security key which Jotform has no access to. These encrypted forms offer another layer of security on top of the already secured forms and submissions Jotform offers.

Emails

When you send us an email your personal information or email address will never be passed on to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our services, as detailed above. We do not collect names and email addresses in marketing sign up email lists on this website.
