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 cannot identify you personally from this information, and we will not associate any data gathered from this site with any other personally identifying information from any source. 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, we use a third party application called HubSpot to collect and store the information you agree to provide us. This is 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 agree to provide us. This is so that we can contact you.
