Why we value your privacy
We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we’re committed to keeping your personal and business information safe. We’re uncomfortable with the information that many companies, governments, and other organizations keep on file, so we try to collect only the bare minimum from our readers. We’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we’ll never give anyone access to it unless we’re forced to by law.
How we collect information
We ask for contact information including your name and email address on our website so that we can reply to your enquiry.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service that transmits basic data about visitors to our website to Google’s home base in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify you or associate your IP address with any other data held by us or Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand the very basics of how people use The Home Fit Freak.
What information we hold
When you contact us by email or through The Home Fit Freak contact forms, we collect your name, email address, and any other information you freely choose to give us.
Where we store your information
When you contact us by email or through our website, we store your information in our webmail inbox for 3 months. This is a simple way of doing it because it’s easy, and we only use your information to respond to enquiries; that’s all.
What we use your information for
At the time of last update, we only use your information to respond to enquiries you send us.
Who’s responsible for your information at The Home Fit Freak
Eamonn Leaver, our founder and webmaster is responsible for the security of your information. You can contact him through our Contact Us page if you have any concerns about the information we store.
Who has access to information about you
When we store information in our own systems, only the people who need it have access.
The steps we take to keep your information private
Where we store your information in third-party services (i.e., our webmail inbox), we restrict access only to people who need it. We don’t collect passwords, or any other personal information other than what you choose to provide us in your enquiry.
The computers we use are all encrypted and are protected by a passcode or fingerprint access. These computers ask for authentication whenever they’re woken from sleep. Our mobile devices are also protected by a fingerprint or facial recognition.
How to complain
We take complaints very seriously. If you’ve any reason to complain about the ways we handle your privacy, please contact us through the form on the Contact Us page. If you’re the letter writing type, that’s too bad. Unfortunately, we do not currently have a brick and mortar operations for you to address mail to.
Changes to the policy
If we change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment we publish them on our website.
