GMG Creative Website Privacy Policy

Who we are

GMG Creative is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our website visitors. We want you to know that we aren't in the business of selling, renting or trading customer email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes - We wouldn't like that ourselves, so we do not want it for our customers.

We provide this Privacy Policy on our website so you know for sure we take care of your personal information and when and why we collect it, how we use it and the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others, such as law enforcement operations, and how we keep it secure.

Types of data we collect via our website

Cookies

Like many websites and services, our website use cookies to collect information.  This includes information about browsing behavior by people who access our websites.  This includes information about pages viewed and the customer journey around our websites. Your name and address is not collected, however your IP address may be to identify a location – we are sure many business owners agree that this information provides valuable insight to where visitors come from and what they like to read, in order to provide a better service. See the Cookie Policy for more information below.

Third-party services such as Google Analytics

We use third party services such as Google Analytics and Full Story, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site, as explained above. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone/an individual. We do not make, and do not allow Google or any other third-party provider to knowingly make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. We would not appreciate this as individuals, so take your privacy seriously.  

Should you wish to opt out of Full Story tracking any of your anonymous movements on this website, please opt-out here. We kindly ask that you consider making it easier to provide a bespoke service by allowing this service. 

We occasionally use Lead Forensics, which can identify an individual business by a publicly available IP address match with a registered business premises. More about Lead Forensics Privacy Policy can be found here.

Mailing Lists

We may from time to time contact our customers via email using a third-party provider, usually MailChimp. This enables us to inform all customers of important information. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails, however we ask you to consider why you unsubscribe, as you may not receive important service updates – if you actively unsubscribe, we are not responsible should you miss any important service updates.

Links to Other Web Sites

This privacy notice does not cover the links within this site linking to other websites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, you’ll need to check that site’s privacy statement.

Access to Your Personal Information and GDPR compliance

You are entitled to access the personal information that we hold, should you give it to us, such as contacting us online. Email your request on our Contact form on the website. Why do we not give our direct email address? Like you, we do not like spam or miss-use of an email address, so it is not always publicly displayed to reduce the amount of spam we receive to spend more time on our customers like you.

Changes to this Privacy Notice

We keep our privacy notice under regular review. This privacy notice was last updated March 2018.

Cookies Policy

We use a system of classifying the different types of cookies which we use on the Website, or which may be used by third parties through our websites. The classification was developed by the International Chamber of Commerce UK and explains more about which cookies we use, why we use them, and the functionality you will lose if you decide you don't want to have them on your device.

What is a cookie?       

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.  

How long are cookies stored for?

Persistent cookies - these cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.  

Session cookies - these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.
