Email subscription consent is secured through opt-in.
If you have opted-in to receiving emails or other marketing materials sent via email, you may opt-out at any time via the unsubscribe feature that appears in our emails or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will never sell, trade or rent out your email address or give it to another company to use as if they acquired it themselves.

We will also use it for remarketing relevant content and offers to you, through social media and the Google Display Network.
Our onsite forms collect name, company name and email address.

When visitors leave comments on the site 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.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
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.

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.
We use anonymised Google Analytics data to improve the content, user experience and performance of our website. We also use anonymised data for marketing purposes. For example, if we find that most of our visitors are of a similar demographic (age, gender, location) then we may use that information to help target any advertising we do. Anonymous data can also be used for remarketing. Whilst the data is anonymous to us, website cookies can be matched back by Google.
