Introduction

This policy explains what information we, Reigate.UK Online Limited, collect about you and how we use it. This policy forms part of our terms and conditions.

Please note that this privacy policy only relates to the website, and not to other sites which we might provide a link to.

Our approach

As you will see below, we collect only very limited data (even for registered users). We work hard to keep what data we collect secure and only use it for the purposes described below.
That said, you should understand that the Internet is not perfectly secure and someone could steal or intercept data. Making sure your browser and security software are up to date helps reduce risks.

Cookies

This website, like most websites, uses cookies. These are small text files placed by your browser onto your hard drive.  A general guide to cookies can be found at http://www.aboutcookies.org

We have set out below the different types of cookies used by our site. If you do not want cookies, then you should either not use this site, or block or delete cookies. To do this please see the help guide included with your web browser, and/or the more specific information below.

Google Analytics: Like many websites, we use Google Analytics and its cookies to obtain information and statistics about website usage including what pages you visit, how long you stay on the site, how you came to the site and what parts of the site you used. We are not able to identify you from this data. Examples of how we might use the data include assessing how many visitors come from a particular search engine, how many of our visitors access the website from the Reigate area and what pages are most popular. There is further information on Google’s Analytics and privacy at http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/privacyoverview.html . If you disable the Google analytics cookies the website will still work fine.

Google AdSense:  Again, like many other websites, we publish Google AdSense interest-based advertisements on our website. These are tailored by Google to reflect your interests. To determine your interests, Google will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the web using the DoubleClick cookie. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/.  You can also opt out of the AdSense partner network cookie using those settings or using the NAI’s (Network Advertising Initiative’s) multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.  However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you may wish to consider using the Google browser plug-in available at: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.  If you opt out of AdSense-related cookies the website will still work fine.

WordPress: The website uses the well-known WordPress Content Management System to publish and manage the material that appears on the website. Cookies are used to store basic data on your interactions with WordPress, and whether you have logged in as a registered user. A session cookie remembers your log-in for you if you have registered as a user. If you disable these cookies you may not be able to use the website so easily if you are a registered user, but otherwise there should be no impact.

Social media cookies: these are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site that allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies are currently set by Twitter, Facebook and Google+. You can check with those organisations how they use your information and your options.

Registered users

You may choose to register as a user on the website. This will allow you to post comments, and (depending on your selection when you register) to receive special offers we may arrange with local businesses.

In order to provide the registered user service, we need to know certain details and record certain choices you make (for example username and password). This information is used for general website administration, website security and for us to e-mail you special offers (if you have elected to receive these).

We will NOT supply your registered user details to any third parties (and that includes advertisers) except:
(a) where required by law, a court order or reasonable request by law enforcement organisations (for example, the police); and
(b) to new owners of the business if we decide to sell the business.

Comments

If you post a comment then clearly we will have that data (the comment) and have various rights to use it, including to edit it and retain it (even if unapproved or removed from this website). Please see the section on comments in the terms and conditions.

Consent

Submitting information to us means that you agree we can use that information as described in this privacy policy. In addition, if you choose to sign up as a registered user we will draw this policy to your attention, and check that we can send you e-mails with special offers.

Contacting us

We are registered with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office under the Data Protection Act 1998.  Information about that leglislation and your rights is available on the ICO website.  To obtain a copy of information held about you, or if you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please see our contacts page.
