What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We use cookies to track web site usage. A cookie is a text file automatically issued to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are used to track the flow of traffic through a web site and identify the computer on any future visits to our site. The information stored in a cookie is not used to identify a particular user, just the computer used to access the site. By accepting a cookie you will allow information about your computer such as your internet browser type, screen resolution and location country to be used to compile anonymous statistics about visits to the web site.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics

The data that Google Analytics uses to provide all the information in your reports comes from these sources:

  • The HTTP request of the use
  • Browser/system information
  • First-party cookies

The HTTP request for any web page contains details about the browser and the computer making the request, such as the hostname, the browser type, referrer, and language. In addition, the DOM of most browsers provides access to more detailed browser and system information, such as Java and Flash support and screen resolution. Analytics uses this information in constructing reports like the Map OverlayBrowser, and Referring Sites reports. Analytics also sets and reads first-party cookies on your users’ browsers in order to obtain user session and any ad campaign information from the page request. The Google Analytics Tracking Code also reads the DoubleClick cookie to get information about the Display Features.

When all this information is collected, it is sent to the Analytics servers in the form of a long list of parameters attached to a single-pixel GIF image request. The data contained in the GIF request is the data sent to the Google Analytics servers.

This data is primarily used to optimise our website for our visitors, however we will use this data for marketing purposes. An example of how this data could be used for marketing purposes would be to tell potential advertisers how many visitors we get to the website, where our visitors come from, and how they arrive at our website. This data DOES NOT include any personalised identification information such as:-

  • Names
  • Phone Numbers
  • Email Addresses
  • Mailing Addresses
  • Bank Account Numbers
  • Credit Card Information

Thank you, if you have any queries or questions please email us at enquiries@bigpurplebox.co.uk
