What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Contact forms

If you use the contact form on my website to get in touch, your name, email address, telephone number and message will be emailed to me at hello@kate-farrell.com. Your data will only be viewed and stored by myself. Should we work together, your data will be stored on my system up until 1 year after our contract is terminated. If we do not work together after making contact, I will store your data for up to 6 months unless you request for it to be deleted before then.

Cookies

When you visit this site, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you complete the contact form on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again should you need to complete the contact form at another time. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

My website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.  Further information about Google’s privacy policy may be obtained from http://www.google.com/privacy.html.

To provide website visitors the ability to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics, Google have developed the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js).

If you want to opt out, download and install the add-on for your web browser. The Google Analytics opt-out add-on is designed to be compatible with Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Safari, Firefox and Opera. In order to function, the opt-out add-on must be able to load and execute properly on your browser. For Internet Explorer, 3rd-party cookies must be enabled. Learn more about the opt-out and how to properly install the browser add-on here.

Social Media

If you share my content through social media, for example by liking me on Facebook, following or tweeting about me on Twitter, or giving me a ‘+1’ via Google Plus, those social networks will record that you have done so and may set a cookie for this purpose.

In some cases, where a page on my website includes content from a social network, such as a Twitter feed, or Facebook comments box, those services may set a cookie even where you do not click a button.  As is the case for all cookies, we cannot access those set by social networks, just as those social networks cannot access cookies we set ourselves.

Your acceptance of this privacy policy

If you do not agree to this privacy policy, please do not use my site.

By using my site, you consent to the collection and use of information by me. Owing to the global nature of the internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. However, I have taken the steps outlined above to try to improve the security of your information. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.

How to contact me

I welcome your views about my website and our privacy policy. If you would like to contact me with any queries or comments please send an e-mail to hello@kate-farrell.com. You may request details of personal information which I hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small fee will be payable.
