Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

As I’m all about keeping things simple, I thought my privacy policy better be nice and easy to follow too.

The Privacy Policy shows the type of information I collect about you while you are using rogeredwards.co.uk (and it’s usually just your name and email address) and the ways I use it.

Here’s a simple summary:

  • I use forms to collect minimal personal information.
  • I won’t send you hundreds of emails (spam) or sell or share your personal data.
  • I use cookies only for Google Analytics.
  • My site uses HTTPS/SSL security.
  • I’m registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the UK

Here’s the “legal bit”: By visiting and using the site, you agree that your use of the site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy. I try to keep the information up to date and correct. I make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose. Any reliance you place on such information is therefore strictly at your own risk.

I’m not liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this website. Roger Edwards Marketing Ltd. takes no responsibility and will not be liable for the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

GDPRis an updated set of data-protection rules that becomes enforceable on 25 May 2018.

There’s been lots of talk about GDPR and you’ll probably know it means you have to give your explicit consent before anyone can sign you up to receive marketing communications. That’s got to be a good thing, right?

Briefly, you also have the right to:

  • learn how your data is being used.
  • request that your data is deleted.
  • retrieve your data in a format you can read and re-use elsewhere.

Information I Collect

Cookies

I use Google Analytics to see how many people visit the site and to work out which pages people like most. For this I need to use a cookie.

Cookies are simple text files your web browser uses to record some settings relevant to each website you visit.

Some sites don’t use cookies at all, but every site that uses Google Analytics does.

Apart from that I don’t use of any other cookies on my site. However, please note it’s possible some WordPress plugin I install may set up cookies, but I don’t look at or use this data.

Emails

I use an email system called Aweber to send out my updates to subscribers. It’s one, maybe two, emails a week.

When you sign up, you go through a double opt-in system before Aweber adds your details to my list. That means you have to:

  1. enter your email address and name via a form on my website, and
  2. click an activation link in a confirmation email.

Everyone on my list has been through the double opt-in and anyone joining it will go through the double opt-in.

There’s an ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of each email I send out, so it’s easy to remove yourself from the list if you don’t want me sending you any more stuff.

Get in Touch

If you use the “Get in Touch” page to contact me, I’ll ask for your email address. But I don’t use this to add you to my mailing list. It’s just for that one time contact. I hope you will choose to join my list though.

Affiliate links

I use Amazon Affiliate links within many of the reviews on this website. This helps me to fund the free content and advice I give. Amazon will show me details of purchases, but they will not tell me any personal details about who bought them.

Drift

I use the Drift live chat plug-in, which may ask for your email address when I’m not online, so that I can reply to your chat messages. Supplying your email address is optional.

Using your information

I collect minimum personal data only so that I can communicate with you.

I don’t sell, trade or share your personally identifiable information, and you’re able to unsubscribe from my communications at any time.

Children’s Information

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to us. For that reason, www.rogeredwards.co.uk does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. I encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity. If a parent or guardian believes that www.rogeredwards.co.uk has in its database the information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.

I’ll never ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms.

This website may use social sharing buttons which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question. Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons that they do so at their own discretion and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page respectively through your social media platform account.
