Nick has put Google Analytics on the site so he can track the number of clicks, impressions and so on.  But that is all the information he gets. He wants to know how effective the site it, and how it is responding.  Nick built the site so has interest in how it is going.

Who we share your data with

No one. No one at all.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.  This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile.  All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).  Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

Additional information

How we protect your data

This business is run by one person, Nick Broadhurst.  Quite simply, he works on the old Golden Rule.  Do not do to someone else what you would not want them to do with you. Your data that he collects, is not for anyone but you.  He knows he has no right to share it and so does not.  This business is not a big business.  It is more like a home family business.

What data breach procedures we have in place

This site does not sell anything online to you.  You do not have to sign anything online.  You do not have to enter any formal agreement or otherwise on line.  This business is strictly is old-school.  You are protected.  The only thing you might give away is information on email about your home address and so on.  But otherwise, there is nothing another party needs to know other than the government who need your energy rating report and the inspection reports notification to follow that the inspection is done right.

What third parties we receive data from

The government give us information on your property.  From that we work out the Energy Rating and the Compliance Report.  Otherwise there is nothing else we need.
