Types of data we collect
When someone visits davidhorndesign.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.
The second type of cookie relates to pop up windows on this site. Now, we don’t use pop-up windows very often (it’s probable that you’ve got to this page without being interrupted by a pop up), but we do use them sometimes. When you see a pop-up window, you can close it whenever you like – and when you do, we set a cookie that says ‘y’know, they’ve seen this pop up once, don’t show it to them again for another couple of weeks at least’. So the cookie serves to not beat you over the head with promotions.
Thirdly, and I hope you’re going to appreciate the irony of this … when you first visited this site, you see a banner at the bottom that says ‘we collect cookies’. When you click the ‘Okay’ button … that sets a cookie so that the banner doesn’t show again.
And that’s it for cookies.
If you complete the contact form on this site – or any form on the site, such as one that appears in a pop up – you’ll be prompted to say if you would like to be added to our mailing list. If you leave that box unticked, then you will not be added. If though you tick the box saying you would like to be added, then you will join our mailing list.
I don’t use that mailing list very often. When I do it’s to tell people about training I’m running, to show off about a new project I think people might find interesting, or to shout about a great new thing I’ve invented (which has never happened, actually). I don’t rent or trade email lists with anyone. Not even if they ask really nicely.
You can unsubscribe to general email at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails. Or, if you can’t find one, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you off the list ASAP.
Access to your personal information
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer (*shrugs* … that’ll be me) at email@example.com, and we’ll dig up everything we have on you. It won’t take long.
