Who we are

This is the website of Sam Bridger Consulting Limited.  Our website address is https://www.sambridger.com.  You can get in touch with us via email (hello@sambridger.com) or by phone (07966 218414).  Our Registered Company Number is 06805595.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We will only collect personal data such as your name, email address and phone number should you provide them via our Contact Form.  No other personal, sensitive, financial or transactional data, such as information about cookies, is collected.

If you have provided your contact details, we will ask you if you would like to be added to our mailing list.  If you do not wish to, your data will not be stored.

This site is operated by WordPress, which does not collect any personal data about visitors. Please see below for information regarding the iThemes Security plugin.

Blog comments

This is the data that WordPress collects by default;

When visitors leave comments on the blog pages, WordPress collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.  After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Analytics

WordPress does not collect any analytics data.

Who we share your data with

Neither Sam Bridger Consulting Ltd nor WordPress shares any personal data with any third parties.

How long we retain your data

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

If you have consented to join our mailing list, we will keep your contact details indefinitely unless you unsubscribe.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Contact information

For any privacy-specific concerns, please contact Sam Bridger, Managing Director, at hello@sambridger.com.

How we protect your data

Any data (name, email address) that has been retained for mailing list purposes is stored securely in a protected database that requires two-factor authentication.  This data is accessed solely by our Managing Director.

This site uses the iThemes Security plugin – additional personal data collection information:

This information is retained for 14 days.
