Privacy Policy

 

Who we are

 

This site is owned and operated by Ayres Consulting Ltd, trading as Jo Riches.

Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand
the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy
statement fully explains what information we gather and how we use it and protect it.

 

The Information we Gather and Track.

 

All submitted information is processed in accordance with the provisions of the 1998 Data
Protection Act.

Jo Riches gathers the following types of information about users:

 

Information Collected by our Contact Forms

This information is collected for the purpose of contacting users with a view to responding to their queries. The information collected in this way is used for no purpose other than this.

 

Information Collected during Member Subscription

Registered members to our site give us only their name and email address, which we use to send newsletters and information relevant to their membership. Member details are used to for these purposes only and are never shared with third parties. Information about unsubscribing is included in each email and it is also possible to remove your name form our newsletter mailing list in the Member’s profile page.

 

Statistical Information about Traffic to our Site

We use statistics software to track user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We do break down overall usage statistics according to where users linked to us from, and about their browser type, by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

We also track and catalogue the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this
tracking is never associated with individual users.

We use the information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

We use any information voluntarily given by our users only for the express purpose for which that information was intended and for that purpose only.

 

Sharing of Information

We use the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs, to provide
information users request about our services and to provide support to our users and subscribers.

We do not and will not ever share information about individual users with any third party, except where we are required to do so to comply with any applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

 

Access to Information

 

Users are legally entitled to a copy of the information held about them at any time. We will be happy to provide this information at any time. Please contact us at [email protected] for details.

 

Security

 

Jo Riches operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised individuals have access to the information provided by our
customers.

If there are changes to our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it.
If you have any questions about this privacy policy, please contact [email protected] for
clarification.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

 

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you visit our login page, we 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
