How we collect information from you
Cookies
A cookie is a small text file which is transferred from a website and stored on your computer's hard drive. It enables a website to "remember" who you are, and we use cookies on our site for this purpose. Cookies are used for authentication, tracking, and maintaining user-specific information (preferences, etc.) and often contain a unique and anonymous identifier. Our website uses the cookies listed below.
The settings in your browser allow you to accept or decline cookies depending upon your preferences. If you reject cookies you may not be able to use our website.
HubSpot
The service provider that assists us with managing our customer contact areas and content (www.firstbaseunlimited.com) uses a tool (HubSpot) which employs web beacons or similar technology to track which emails are opened, which contacts open attachments, which links are clicked on or documents downloaded. It may therefore process a user’s name, email address and IP address in connection with the tracking activities described above. More information on this is set out below under the section Sharing your information and in the third party privacy policies referenced there. You can adjust your settings to opt out from this technology, as specified in the HubSpot cookies policy at https://legal.hubspot.com/cookie-policy.
Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics; a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). The Google Analytics service collects information on the page you have visited and helps us to improve our services to you. No data which is collected through this service is personally identifiable. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address which we do not link to any personally identifiable information) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services to us relating to website activity and internet usage.
