WHO WE ARE
TYPES OF DATA WE COLLECT
When someone visits our website 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.
Our Contact Form on the Contact Page, requires Name, Email and Phone information alongside a message. Any data you submit through this contact form is not visible to other visitors or shared with anyone other than the necessary recipients within columbia.uk.com administration.
