What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors submit quotes on the site we collect the data shown in the quote form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Email addresses from free email services may also be submitted to a third party to help in fraud prevention and spam.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Any information submitted through a contact form and any other data including your IP address and user-agent of your browser may also be collected. This information is only used for site improvements or to troubleshoot issues with contact forms.
If you request a quote or make a purchase on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again. These cookies will last for one year.
