User privacy and data protection are human rights

Along with my business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)
This site's compliance with the above legislation, all of which are stringent in nature, means that this site is likely compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories as well.
Personal information this website collects and why I collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. I use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use my web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer's IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do provide access to this.
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
Contact Forms and email links
Should you choose to contact me using the contact form on the Contact page or an email link like firstname.lastname@example.org the data will be collated into an email and sent me us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). My SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using advanced cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by my local computers and devices.
