When you visit hardhats.co.uk, 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 such things as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way that does not directly 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. We use the information to report on visitor numbers, and to make improvements to our service.

This information is collected only if visitors opt in. The information collected is classed as personal data because Google assigns a unique identifier to each visitor. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

We have measures to protect the information collected, which include: limiting the amount of data collected (including not collecting full IP addresses), setting a retention schedule, restricting access to our Google Analytics data, and regularly reviewing our use of analytics.

We keep analytics data for 14 months from a visitor’s last visit.
