Introduction

Thank you for visiting https://sallytownsendblake.com. We want to explain to you what ‘personal data’ the website collects and what we do with it, including our use of ‘cookies’.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time, please check in for updates.

Your personal data

The website doesn’t collect any personal data like names, email addresses etc. as it doesn’t use a contact form or mailing list signup form. It doesn’t have a blog comment facility. We don’t operate a mailing list for marketing or any other purpose. You may contact us by email, however we can’t guarantee that your email will be encrypted at all stages of its life.

Google Analytics IP address collection

The website uses Google Analytics tracking software so we can evaluate the effectiveness of the site in general terms, but we have set it to ANONYMISE IP addresses, so you can’t be personally identified. You can read more about how this anonymisation works and what it means at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en.

Google Analytics cookie placement

If you don’t know what a cookie is, you could watch this helpful short video on YouTube or here:

Data sent between your device and our website
