Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://www.mybuzztechnologies.co.uk.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, such as against a blog post, 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.

Please be aware that your comments, once approved by the moderator, will be publicly visible to all users of this site. As such, we strongly recommend taking care when deciding what to include in your comment to avoid accidentally exposing information you do not wish to become public.

An anonymised 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.

Contact Forms

The MyBuzz Technologies Ltd website provides a convenient contact form through which you can contact us.

The information entered into this form is used to form an email which is sent to our customer care team, but is then immediately discarded from the website.

The information you provide will be kept in our email or help desk system for the duration of our contact with you. We will use this information in order to service your query, question or request which may include responses by email to you. Your personal details will never be used for marketing purposes, such as mailing lists unless you explicitly opt into doing so.

Cookies

If you leave a comment 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 when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

You can, at any time, delete the cookies associated with this (and other) websites through the settings area of your browser. Please refer to the browser help system to find out how to do this for your specific browser.

Embedded content from other websites

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, we do not have control over these third party sites, nor can we be held responsible for what data they collect, how they store or process it. We strongly recommend that you check their privacy policy before engaging with these third parties, their website or services.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to monitor use of our site, for security and performance purposes. This allows us to check for security issues, misuse of the site and get an idea of how effective our site is at providing the information you need from it.

The information collected includes details about your computer and your activity while using our website. The data we collect may include:

  • Your computer’s public IP address
  • The country in which you are browsing the site
  • Your make and model of web browser
  • The make and model of device you use to browse the site from
  • The pages you visit within our site
  • Any third party pages that you visit directly from links contained in our site

This data is anonymous, and will never include your name, address or contact details.

Who we share your data with

Nobody. We treat your data with respect and will never share your details with any third parties.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

If you wish to have your data exported or removed, please contact our customer care team at: privacy@mybuzztechnologies.co.uk who will be happy to assist.

Where we send your data

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