I receive, collect and store any information you enter on the website or provide me in any other way.

 

Personal information is gathered from the contact function on the website.  When you send an enquiry regarding translation, proofreading or English teaching services, you are asked for information such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, contact details and the nature of the enquiry.  A record of this information is kept in order to recognise you as a customer in the future and fulfil the assignments you place with Indigo English.  I keep a record of any e-mail correspondence you send me, which helps me to manage your enquiry, provide my service and keep track of any problems or concerns you may have had with my services.

 

In addition, I collect the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, computer, and connection information.  I may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page.

This non-personal and personal information is collected for the following purposes:

  1. To provide and operate services;

  2. To provide visitors with ongoing customer assistance;

  3. To be able to contact visitors with general or personalized service-related notices and promotional messages;

  4. To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred non-personal information which may be used to provide and improve services; 

  5. To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.

 


Key third party providers

Indigo English does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. 

Indigo English is hosted on the Wix.com platform.  Wix.com provides me with the online platform that allows me to market my services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. I also make use of a tool from Google called Google Analytics which tells me about the way people are using Indigo English.  It uses cookies to detect that someone has been to the site before, so that I can see how often people return to the site, how long they stay, and where they tend to go.  I use this to try to work out what kind of experience they’re having on the site so I can make it better.

How is your personal information used?

All the information collected via the website or through correspondence with you is used to operate and improve the service offered to you. 

 

Indigo English is committed to using your personal information only for following up on your enquiry, marketing and providing services; resolving a dispute, collecting fees or monies owed; polling your opinions through surveys or questionnaires; sending updates about our company, or as otherwise necessary, contacting you to enforce any applicable national laws, and any agreement I may have with you.  For these purposes I may contact you via email, telephone, text message, and postal mail.  If you would like to opt out of receiving such messages, then please contact me at info@indigo-english.com.

 

I will retain a record of your personal information.  This is done in order for Indigo English to provide you with a high quality and consistent service.  I will always retain your personal information in accordance with law and regulation and never retain your information for longer than is necessary.

Cookies and other tracking tools

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your device’s browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive.  Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device.  Websites can send their own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it.  At Indigo English, the website uses cookies which are strictly necessary, (such as those which ensure security and enable the use of basic functions on the website) and performance cookies, (which enable a better understanding of how customers interact with the website by collecting anonymous information and reporting on it).

There are two types of cookies:

  • Session (Transient) cookies: These cookies are erased when you close your browser, and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

  • Persistent (Permanent or Stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e. they are based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.

  • svSession - Persistent cookie - Identifies unique visitors and tracks a visitor’s sessions on a site.
