VISITORS TO OUR WEBSITE
When someone visits www.thisismeagency.co.uk we use third-party services, 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, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
THE PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU WHEN YOU CONTACT US VIA OUR WEBSITE, SOCIAL MEDIA, EMAIL OR TELEPHONE
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. You can find out more about personal data from the Information Commissioners Office.
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
- Identity Data includes first name and last name
- Contact Data includes address, email address and telephone numbers.
We gather statistics around social media clicks and interactions to help us monitor and improve our digital presence.
We use Ionos to encrypt and protect email traffic in line with government recommendations. If your email service does not support TLS, you should be aware that any emails we send or receive may not be protected in transit.
We will also monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send is within the bounds of the law.
Where enquiries are submitted to us, we will only use the information supplied to us to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues and to check on the level of service we provide.
We have a duty to monitor and detect any potential data breach (for example if we believe email addresses or personal data has been stolen from us or any of our data processing partners). If we suspect a data breach has occurred, we will report it immediately to the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) and, if necessary, to do so, the data subject(s).
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a client and website and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
SECURITY AND PERFORMANCE
This is Me Agency uses a third-party service, to host our website and help maintain its security and performance. To deliver this service it processes the IP addresses of visitors to the This is Me Agency Ltd website.
FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKS
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons. To do so we embed code that they provide, and we do not control ourselves. To function, their buttons generally know if you are logged in; for example, Facebook use this to say, “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it. Social networks therefore could know that you are viewing our website if you use their services.
If you sign up to receive our monthly Newsletter, we will process your data for marketing purposes using ‘Legitimate Interests’ as our lawful basis for doing so. ‘Legitimate Interests’ means that we can process your personal information if we have a genuine and legitimate reason, and we are not harming any of your rights and interests. You will always have the right to opt out at any time and we will always honour any such requests. We will not pass your details to third parties, other than data processing partners.
