Cookies and Our Privacy Policy

Privacy can be confusing but it matters, so through this page we’ll do our best to explain our approach to privacy on BusinessMediaSolutions.co.uk and how it affects you.

  • We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  • Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
  • If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission.
  • We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.

These are the key points. If you want more detail, see below.

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you are logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you are viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

To allow visitors to discuss our blog articles and some web pages we use a system called WordPress.

You can read the WordPress privacy policy here.

When you sign up for any of our services – paid or otherwise – we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address.

We also log account and transaction history for accounting purposes, and to monitor our business activities.

We may send you email notifications which you have specifically requested or agreed to receiving. You have the ability to opt out of any of this communication at any time.

We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above.

We use a variety of payment providers to bill for our products online. These companies will have access to your personal and payment information only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website. When paying by credit card, Business Media Solutions themselves do not ever have any access to your credit card details.
We take many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:

  • Use of SSL encryption for sensitive data
  • Hardware stored in secured data centers behind firewalls
  • All access to information restricted by password and/or secure key
  • Restrictions to what information can be accessed via any location

Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.

Of course you are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. Nobody at Business Media Solutions will ever ask you for your password, so please don’t trust anybody asking you for it.

Business Media Solutions makes use of various 3rd party APIs to collect information. For example we use the Google Maps API to gather local presence information (see Google Map’s privacy policy).

Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.
