Your privacy is very important to us. This policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations and requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore, the way this website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy. This website and its owners take a proactive approach to user privacy and ensures the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users throughout their visiting experience. We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal information.
2.0 RELEVANT LEGISLATION
This website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
- UK Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA)
- EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
- EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)
This site’s compliance with the above legislation, all of which are stringent in nature, means that this site is likely compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories as well. If you are unsure about whether this site is compliant with your own country of residences’ specific data protection and user privacy legislation you should contact our data protection officer (details of whom can be found in section 16.0) for clarification.
3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We also use ActiveCampaign (AC) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA and AC records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which helps guard against hacking attempts but could be used to personally identify you, but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google and AC to be third party data processors (see section 12.0 below).
3.2 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page then the data that you supply will be passed to ActiveCampaign. We consider ActiveCampaign to be a third party data processer (see section 12.0 below). The details that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.
Should you choose to contact us using an email link like this one, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in section 12.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
3.3 Email newsletter
If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to ActiveCampaign who provide us with email marketing services. We consider ActiveCampaign to be a third party data processor (see section 12.0 below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.
Your email address will remain within the ActiveCampaign database for as long as we continue to use ActiveCampaign services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.
Email marketing campaigns published by this website or its owners may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in ActiveCampaign for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include; the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is by no means a comprehensive list). This information is used to refine future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter. While your email address remains within the ActiveCampaign database, you will receive periodic newsletter-style emails from us.
4.0 WEBSITE SEARCH ENGINE
Our website search is powered by WordPress Search and queries and results are logged anonymously to help us improve our website and search functionality. No user-specific data is collected by either Edbury Daley or any third party.

7.0 CONTACT & COMMUNICATION
We use any information submitted to provide you with further information about the products / services we offer or to assist you in answering any questions or queries you may have submitted.
