We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This page explains what we collect and how we use your information. It explains where you have control of what we collect and where you don't.
What information we collect
Information can be received by us in three ways:
- Information received from you through the contact form on the site.
- Information you email to us through our email address.
- Information you allow us to store in cookies recording the way you use the site and your preferences.
How we use your information
- Any information you choose to send us we will not share with other parties.
- Any information you allow us to collect through cookies will be used to improve your experience when visiting the site.
CookiesCookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by sites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make sites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our site (www.smartme.co.uk). We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source.
Why are we explaining this? - The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) requires sites to explain the cookie data that we store on your computer, and where such cookies are not essential to the operation of the site to allow you to opt out of their storage on your computer.
What options do I have? - The table below shows the cookies that we store on your computer. Some of them are classed as essential to the operation of the site (so your only choice if you are not happy with them is not to use the site), but others are optional and you may opt out of them if you wish. The preferences that you choose below are specific to the computer that you are currently using and you will have to set them on each computer as you use our site.
