What information do we collect?
In order to improve our services, we use Google Analytics to track visitors to the site. The information we collect using this service includes what pages are visited, which country and region the user is visiting from, and how long a visitor spends on the website. The information also tells us what web browser the user is using, what kind of device (desktop or mobile), the date and time of your visit. We also use Hotjar, which is a website analytical tool that helps us understand how users behave on the website. The information we are able to access includes what links users click on and when, how long a user stays on a page for and how long a user stays on the website.
At no time during your visit can we identify you personally from the information we collect by methods explained above, and we will not associate any data gathered from this site with data from any source with the aim of being able to personally identify you. We do not attempt to collect any personal data about you through this web site unless you provide it to us voluntarily; for example, by sending us an email, or by one of the methods below. We do not collect or store IP addresses.
When contacting us via our Contact Form, the only information we ask for is a name and email address so that we can reply back to your query. After we have done this, your personal details are removed from our records, unless you explicitly ask us not to, or if the query replies ongoing communication between you and Get Safe Online.
When you subscribe to our Newsletter using one of the subscription forms, the data you provide us is stored and processed using HubSpot. We ask for your first name, last name and email address so that we can send you a personalised version of the Newsletter. If you contact us via our “Become a Partner” page, we use HubSpot to collect and store the information you provide us. This is so that we can contact you.
If you have any questions regarding what information we collect, please contact us.
