If you are reading this, you most likely found it on our website. We do what we can to try to get you to visit and read our website by creating content that is useful and relevant for you.
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Our online booking system service is primarily for businesses and we do what any business owner tries to do by looking to understand what works and what doesn’t in an effort to keep improving on what we do.
We monitor the volume of visitors to our website, how you found us, where you came from and which pages you view when visiting our site. We do not know who you are, just that you arrived from here and go there etc.
Sometimes we use Facebook pixels to figure out what type of person visits our sites and who likes us so we can create advertising that appeals to our customers and potential customers.
None of this results in us monitoring you in any personal way – we simply want to learn who our prospective customers might be and what they like.
Downloads and services
If you contact us and ask us to send you information or purchase the use of Learn2drift, we will add your details to our sales and marketing database.
A lot of our introduction for new features is by emails that send you e.g. hints and tips as well as short videos on ‘how to…’. You can unsubscribe from these at any time, but they are quite short and most people find them useful.
We monitor who reads our marketing emails, how many times and which links are opened. This helps us better understand and improve the information we send.
Our own sales and marketing team (both internal and external) may contact potential customers from time to time. This can be because you may have requested a call back, further information, or a meeting. We may also contact you to let you know about something that may benefit you.
We are not a hard sell organisation and aim to build long-term relationships with satisfied customers.
Financial and credit card details
If you pay us by credit card, we use an external processor. We do not hold your credit card details.
If you pay us by BACS or direct transfer, we know only what the bank identifies – usually the name of the person who paid us and how much and the reference number.
Where do we get data about you from?
Nearly all of our information about you comes from your signup to use Learn2drifts products, when you complete forms on our website, if you contact us by phone, email.
Additionally, we also collect information from you when you enter a promotion or survey or when you inform us of any other matter.
If you have a business web page we will periodically add some of that information to our records that we hold for you. Our contact management systems may also contact you via Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter or similar. If we are in contact via those mediums we may add this to your customer record.
