When someone visits www.purrmetrix.com 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.
As part of the registration process for our newsletter and email ‘how-tos’, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Chris Howell
PURRMETRIX WEB SERVICE
When you buy hardware from Purrmetrix we collect data on your contact details – physical address and email – and invite you to set up an account with us. We do this firstly to help us ship the hardware to the right place and secondly to set up the web service that you will need for the hardware to work.
This data is never shared with third parties. We will keep this data for as long as you are a customer of Purrmetrix, but you have the right to ask us to share it with you or delete it whenever you wish by emailing our data protection officer Chris Howell.
PURRMETRIX EQUIPMENT AND PHONE APP
On our phone app, we also collect data on how visitors behave when using our phone app, including dates and times of use and which pages are visited, to allow us to improve the app’s useability.
To manage access to the app we collect your name and email address which is stored securely on our servers. This data will not be shared with third parties without your consent. We will keep it as long as you are a user of the phone app, but you have the right to ask us to delete it or correct it whenever you wish.
