What data we hold
We generate log files from various servers: this will include an IP address assigned to you.
We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the website, track users’ movements and gather demographic information for aggregate use. We will not use your IP address to identify you.
We also generate log files from various servers: this will include an IP address assigned to you or, more likely, to someone who provides you with Internet access.
Using your information
References to the basis of processing (e.g. "(Basis: Art. 6(f))" are a reference to the article of the General Data Protection Regulation under which we undertake the processing in question.
We use the logs from our servers to assist in our firm's security, as well as to determine visitor behaviour and help us plan our strategy (e.g. such as working out which pages on the site are most popular, or whether particular events have caused an increase in traffic).
(Basis: Art. 6(c): we have legal and regulatory obligations to protect our clients and their information. Art. 6(f): strategy planning is a legitimate, indeed sensible, thing for a business to do.)
Your data and the EEA
We do not transfer or process these data outside the European Economic Area.
You have rights in respect of our processing of your personal data but, since all we have is an IP address linked (at best) to your computer or phone, they are not particularly meaningful here.
The relevant rights are:
- get access to your personal data and information about our processing of it
- restrict our processing of your data for strategy planning purposes, and compel us to erase the bits we do not use for security purposes
- object to our processing for strategy planning purposes
If you want to exercise any of these rights, please just contact us.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint about our processing with a supervisory authority — you may use any EEA authority probably want the UK's Information Commissioner's Office.
We take all appropriate steps to protect your information both online and off-line. We have robust information security management systems in place to protect your personal information. Capsticks is accredited to ISO 27001 which is an international information security standard which is widely recognised as an indication of best practice in information security and information risk management.
Server logs: up to one year, after which they are deleted automatically
Contact details you provide when you request E bulletins or newsletters are retained until you update your preferences and ask to unsubscribe, so we can continue to provide you with the service you have requested.
If you register for an event we will, unless you have consented to receive email for future events, delete your contact information once the event has taken place.
