I, Adam Usher am committed to protecting your privacy and promise to collect, process and share your data safely and securely when you use www.adamumarketing.com. This Privacy and Cookie Policy tells you how I do this and what your rights are. Any personal data processed in line with our Privacy and Cookie Policy is controlled by me, as the data controller.

Personal information

Only if you choose to fill in the contact form or email me directly will I collect any personal and/or contact information you provide. This could include your name, email address, contact telephone number and any payment details you wish to share to pay for my services (including credit card information). This information may also be recorded if you contact me through my social media profiles.

 

Technical information about your website visit which may include

  • The Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet

  • Your browser type and version

  • Your time zone

  • Your location data (city and country)

  • If you have provided gender and age information to Google, this information may also be available

  • Pages viewed

  • Page response times

  • Length of visit to my website

  • Page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks or length of time on page)

 

How and why I use your personal data

In the table below, I have set out all of the ways I use your personal data, and why.

 

How I communicate with site visitors

Upon providing your contact details to me I may contact you to discuss services, start and maintain a relationship, resolve a dispute, collect any fees or monies owed, poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, send you updates about my business, to enforce any agreements between us, or as otherwise necessary. For these purposes I may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, social media, or postal mail.

 

How to withdraw your consent

You can withdraw your consent to process your data at any time by notifying me by email at adam@aushermarketing.com and including ‘end my consent’ in the subject line.

 

Sharing your data with third parties

If required, I may share the data I have collected from you with:

  • The police or other such legal authority – as part of an investigation or otherwise for legal or regulatory purposes.

  • Dispute Resolution agencies – for the purposes of dealing with any outstanding payments or complaints.

 

How I protect your personal data

I have various measures in place to protect your personal data:

 

My website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides me with the online platform that allows me to engage with you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.  

 

All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by me adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by me (should this be required).

 

My entire website is accessed using https rather than http, meaning that all information that is sent and received is encrypted for additional security. You can see this in the address bar of your browser.

 

My email is hosted by Titan Mail and has two-factor authorisation.

 

My website may, from time to time, contain links to external websites. I am not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of such external websites.

 

As described in this Privacy and Cookie Policy, I may in some instances disclose your personal data to third parties. Where I do, I require that third party to have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to protect your personal data; however, in some instances I may be compelled by law to disclose your personal data to a third party and have limited control over how it is protected by that party.

 

How long I keep your personal data

Your personal details will be kept for a period of 1 year, or for the life cycle of our relationship together, followed by a period of 1 year.

The technical information about your visit may be kept up to 14 months from your visit to help me develop and improve my website.

 

Your rights

You have the right:

  • To see the information I hold on you, and confirm what data I am processing about you.

  • To ask me to correct any inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete personal data.

  • To request that I erase the personal information I hold on you. This is also known as the 'right to be forgotten'. The right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances.

  • To request that I restrict or limit the way that I use your personal data.

  • To request a copy of your information and where possible I will provide it to you in a machine-readable format such as .CSV file if you wish. I will do this free of charge and would include only the information you have provided directly to me.

  • To object to the processing of your information.

 

Contact me

If you have any questions about my Privacy Policy, including any requests to exercise your rights, please get in touch by emailing: adam@aushermarketing.com

 

To request a copy of the personal data that I hold about you, please send your request in writing to adam@aushermarketing.com. To enable me to verify your identity and process your request, you must include all of the following information with your request:

  • Your full name;

  • The email address or social media channel and handle you used to contact me;

  • A description of the data that you are requesting, including a date range;

  • The date of the request.

 

If you feel that your personal data has not been handled correctly, please contact me in writing in the first instance, so that I can do my best to correct this. If you are still unhappy with my response you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Commissioner’s Office (ICO) at any time. The ICO’s contact details are available here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/. I would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with any concerns before you approach the ICO, so please contact me in the first instance.

 

Cookies

I believe in being clear and open about how I collect and use any data related to you. In the spirit of

transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when I use cookies. It may look

technical, but it is designed to give you confidence about how I use your data and keep it safe.

 

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files containing unique data to identify your computer to a website. When you visit a website, it gives your browser a cookie to store in a cookie file that’s placed in your browser’s folder on your hard drive. The next time you visit the same website, the browser will give back the cookie to identify you. Then the website loads with a personalized experience.

 

Why do I use cookies?

My website uses cookies and similar technologies to distinguish you from other users of my site. This helps me provide you with a good experience when you browse my website, and it also helps me to improve it for you, based on how you use it.

By continuing to visit my site, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes I describe in this policy.

 

How long do cookies last?

A number of cookies and similar technologies I use last only for the duration of your web session and

expire when you close your browser. Others are used to remember you when you return to my website

and will last for longer.

 

What type of cookies do I use?

I use the following types of cookies:

 

Strictly necessary

This helps me to improve the way my website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. Functionality cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you.

 

You can find more information about the individual cookies I use and the purposes for which I use

Disabling cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies and similar technologies, but if you prefer, you can

change your browser to prevent that and your help screen or manual will tell you how to do this.

 

However, you may not be able to take full advantage of our website if you do so.

not operate properly if all cookies are switched off. Rejecting or disabling cookies could result in certain
