Privacy policy

I respect your privacy and this policy explains how I collect and treat any information you give me. I’ve no desire to trick you or harvest your data to sell.

My policy covers

Why I value your privacy

I value your privacy as much as I my own. I’m uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so I ask for only the bare minimum from our customers. I’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it. And I’ll never give anyone access to it unless I’m forced to by law.

How I collect information

I ask for contact information including your name and email address on my website, so that I can reply to your enquiry.

My website doesn’t use cookies or scripts that are designed to track the webbsites you visit. I don’t use analytics or social media ‘like’ or ‘sharing’ buttons which also build profiles of your internet activity.

What information I hold

When you contact me by email or through my website, I collect your name and email address if you’ve given us that.

Where I store your information

When you contact me using the website contact form your information is stored in the website’s database.

What I use your information for

I use your information to respond to your enquiry.

Who’s responsible for your information

Alexander Blackman is responsible for the security of your information. You can contact me by email at alex@alexanderblackman.co.uk.

Who has access to information about you

When I store information in my own systems, only I have access.

The steps I take to keep your information private

I store passwords to any online account using a password manager. The password manage is encrypted, randomly generates passwords for each service, and never uses the same password twice.

The computers I use are protected by a passcode or fingerprint access. These computers ask for authentication whenever they’re started or after five minutes of inactivity.

How to complain

I take complaints seriously. If you’ve any reason to complain about the way I handle your privacy, please contact me by email at alex@alexanderblackman.co.uk.

Changes to the policy

If I change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment I publish them on my website.
