We have created this policy so that you can feel confident about the privacy and security of your personal information.
Websites built for business
You may need to register to access our website and where you do not register personal information about you will not be collected by us.
If you register for our services, any details you provide may be stored for use on future visits, as we do not want you to give us any information more than once. The details you give us may be combined with information about your use of the SMT Creative website(s) and information from other of our records in order to provide you with online services you request.
We respect the privacy of personal email accounts and we store your email addresses just as securely as other personal information. We will not send you unwanted email messages or junk mail, and your details will not be passed to any organisation outside the group for marketing purposes without your explicit permission. However, we may use email in response to enquiries you make about our services or service issues.
Disclosure of Information
We take all reasonable care to prevent any unauthorised access to your personal data.
We sometimes use other companies to provide some of our services or to provide services to us. To enable them to do this, we may need to let them process your personal information. Our staff and those working for our agents or contractors have a responsibility to keep your information confidential and are only allowed to use it to offer products and services on our behalf.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive by websites you visit to enable the site to ‘remember’ who you are. In general, cookies are only visible to the site that serves them, not to other websites. ‘Serves’ means places on your computer’s hard drive.
We use the free Google Analytics tool (see http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/) to collect and analyse site statistics. Google Analytics uses persistent cookies to track data. These cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information and are only used for the statistical collection of data such as visits and page hits. Google Analytics’ cookies store IP addresses but we cannot link those addresses to any individual or path through the website. Google uses the cookies to read information and evaluate visitors’ use of the website in the form of statistical reports that we can access. The Google Analytics’ code is incorporated into our site’s code so that our site serves the cookies, but Google has access to the cookies. You can stop being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites by going to Google’s site at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Google Analytics’ terms require us to reproduce the following wording in this policy:
