Privacy policy

 

This privacy policy is published by Plinth House Ltd. and relates to information provided to Plinth House via the organisation’s website (www.plinthhouse.com). 

 

 

What personal data do we collect and why do we collect it?

 


Contact forms, surveys and event registrations

 

When visitors send us comments or questions using the contact forms on the site, we collect the data provided by the visitor in the comments form.  Any contact made to us will be treated in confidence.  Data submitted by visitors such contact forms or surveys may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

 

Some longer form submissions (e.g. survey responses) may be processed and managed via a company called POWr. When submitting a form, you will be asked to acknowledge that the information you provide will be processed in accordance with POWr’s own Privacy Policy.

 

When we publicise events on our website, the registration links for these will take you to external event registration platforms, such as Eventbrite or GoToWebinar.  Those platforms will provider further information on how your information will be stored and handled, and, if further consent from you is required in relation to our use of your data, it will be requested at the time at which you register for one of our events.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

 

Site analytics and other data provided via the website

 

We use analytics to gather data in order to gain insights into how to improve the functionality and user experience of the website.  Such data might include your Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, the type of device you are viewing our site on (e.g. desktop computer, mobile device, etc.).   We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page.

 

Our website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. 

 

Some of the analytics data described above is collected via cookies used by the website.  You can find out more about cookies, including how to disable/enable and delete them, at the following website www.aboutcookies.org

 

You can block most cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our website/services, or you may experience reduced functionality when accessing certain services. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon you visit our website.

 

You can opt-out of receiving cookies from a range of ad servers (including, among others, Doubleclick, Videology, AudienceScience and Microsoft) by visiting www.youronlinechoices.com and following the instructions provided.

 

Why do we collect the above data?

 

We collect the above non-personal and personal information in order to:

 

  • provide and operate the services that we provide;

  • be able to contact our visitors with general or personalised service-related notices and promotional messages (always ensuring that visitors can opt out of receiving such communications at any time);

  • create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred non-personal information, which we may use to enhance our website or the services we provide; and

  • comply with any applicable laws and regulations.

 

Who do we share your data with?

 

Except as specified elsewhere under this policy, we would not share your information with a third party – for example, for marketing purposes.  An exception is in the very rare situation in which we need to share information in order to comply with legal requirements or in an emergency situation in which the sharing of such information is necessary to protect a person’s vital interests, as defined in data protection legislation.

 

What rights do you have over your data?

 

If you have sent us comments or any other information via this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

 

Further information

 

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy and we already hold personal data from or about you, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.
