Types of Data we Collect

Website Cookies

See our Cookies Policy

Google Analytics

When someone visits www.alsothus.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailing Lists

Our site may give you the opportunity to sign up to our e-newsletter. When you do this we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer via Data@alsothus.com

Contact and Customer Data

In order to give you good customer service, we will store customer, and potential customer information in our contact database, customer relationship management system and accounting systems. This covers name, contact details, business address, size of organisation, gender, social media links and photograph. This will be based on business cards or contact information you have provided to us, information freely available on google, or on your Linkedin profile.

Access to your personal Information.

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer via data@AlsoThus.com
