PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect all or some of the following data

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Job Title
  • Profession
  • Email Addresses
  • Telephone Numbers
  • Postal Addresses


SITE TRACKING
Along with many other websites we have chosen to track user information via Google Analytics, a third party data processor. We collect this data to understand how many visitors we receive to the site and how they interact with the site. This allows us to provide a better user experience for site visitors.

Although Google Analytics does track data such as a user’s geographical location, browser type, device type and operating system, it is not information that personally identifies you to us. Whilst Google Analytics does record a user’s IP address (which could be used to identify an individual), we do not have access to this information.
Google Analytics also uses cookies as part of its tracking process. To find out more about Google’s use of cookies please visit their developer guides. By disabling cookies on your internet browser you will be able to stop Google tracking your visit to our site.


WHY DO WE COLLECT PERSONAL DATA AND HOW LONG DO WE KEEP IT?

The data outlined in the above sections may be required from time to time in order to provide you with the best possible service and experience when using our website and services. Key areas we use this data for are:

  • Internal record keeping. This includes sales invoices and quotes. Invoices and quotes are held for a minimum of 6 years to allow us to offer complete transparency if we were to face a tax inspection.
  • E-marketing campaigns for promotional materials that you may find interesting. See Mailing Lists section below.
  • In order for us to carry out tasks as agreed in working contracts. These areas include website development, graphic design and email marketing. A good example would be contact details to email a client with on-going project updates and to email or post an invoice. This data is held for a minimum of 6 years to allow us to offer complete transparency if we were to face a tax inspection.
  • Storage of completed works. In certain instances we may store personal data as part of completed work. A good example would be storing business card artwork for a client. We hold this for an indefinite period because at any time the client may request a copy of this artwork or a reprint.
  • We may collect your client’s data as part of a website build project. This may include taking temporary copies of customer data (a good example being an e-commerce store database) whilst we undertake website updates on our internal website development server. Customer data is deleted and never held for longer than 30 days, this being a fair time for us to undertake website updates.


E-MARKETING AND MAILING LISTS

If you opt-in to receive our marketing updates your personal data (Including your name, company name, telephone number, postal address and email address) will be sent to our marketing lists stored within Mailchimp, a third party processor we use for data management and direct marketing. The submitted personal data will not be stored within our website’s database or our internal computer servers.

Your data will be stored within the Mailchimp database for an indefinite period and as long as we continue using Mailchimp for email marketing purposes or until you request removal from the list. Removing your personal data from our list can be achieved by using the unsubscribe link contained in a previous marketing email we have sent or by emailing data@designjam.co.uk from the email address that we have stored.
Whilst your personal data remains within the Mailchimp database you will receive marketing information from us periodically and at the most twice per month.
Please note that if you are under 16 years of age you must obtain parental/guardian consent before joining our mailing list.


CONTACT FORMS AND EMAIL LINKS

Our website will not store any information submitted when using any contact forms within our website or any email links within our website. We will not pass information to be processed by any of the third party data processors we use unless you opt-in to receive marketing communications from us.

Data entered is simply used to create an email that is sent directly to info@designjam.co.uk using the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted.


HOW WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

All data held by Designjam Ltd is secure. Firewalls block all public access to our internal server systems with the exception of secure browser (https), email and mobile network connections necessary to provide our services.
Key employees have access to our systems with multi-layer security in order to provide essential maintenance and development activity. We ensure our online and offline systems receive regular software updates and we enforce strong passwords through client education.
Furthermore, all data is backed up on cloud based storage providers. See “OUR THIRD PARTY DATA PROCESSORS” section for more information
