We use Google Analytics to better understand what people look at on our website. When people visit our site, information about their visit (such as which pages they look at, how long they spend on the site and so on) is sent in an anonymous form to Google Analytics (which is controlled by Google). The data contains information about anyone who uses our website from your computer, and there is no way to identify individuals from the data. As analytics information is not personal data, we do not specifically ask for your prior consent.
We use HubSpot as our Customer Relationship Management System. This system can provide us with information relating to your use of our products and services. This provides us with general website analytics similarly to Google Analytics. The data is anonymous and users cannot be identified. However, in instances where you have submitted a website form, and given consent, your experience on our website is provided to us. This allows us to tailor our products and services to your individual needs, and provide you with a higher quality service. You can withdraw your consent to this by contacting us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
