Privacy Policy

Who are we?

We are Goodcircle Design CIC ("we", "our", or "us") company number 12383169, registered in England and Wales. Our registered office is 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9JQ.

The size and nature of our business means that we do not need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO), but if you have any questions about this policy, you are welcome to email hello@goodcircle.co.uk.

What does this policy cover?

This policy explains how and why we use your information when you contact us or use our website. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and anonymous information that could not.

We comply with the DPA (Data Protection Act 1998) and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which came into effect from May 2018. We will update this policy accordingly after the completion of the UK's exit from the European Union.

The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regard to the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at http://www.knowyourprivacyrights.org.

Analytics

We use an open source service called Plausible to analyse the use of this website, including the number of visitors that we receive, their geographical location, and browser/device versions. Plausible does not use cookies and does not collect any personal data.

When you get in touch

Where we have clearly stated and made you aware of the fact, and where you have given your express permission, we may use your details to send you products/services information through a mailing list system. This is done in accordance with the regulations named in 'The policy' above.

Email Mailing List & Marketing Messages

We operate an email mailing list program, used to inform subscribers about products, services and/or news we supply/publish. Users can subscribe through an online automated process where they have given their explicit permission. Subscriber personal details are collected, processed, managed and stored in accordance with the regulations named in 'The policy' above. Subscribers can unsubscribe at any time through an automated online service, or if not available, other means as detailed in the footer of sent marketing messages. The type and content of marketing messages subscribers receive, and if it may contain third party content, is clearly outlined at the point of subscription.

Email marketing messages may contain tracking beacons / tracked clickable links or similar server technologies in order to track subscriber activity within email marketing messages. Where used, such marketing messages may record a range of subscriber data relating to engagement, geographic, demographics and already stored subscriber data.

Our EMS (email marketing service) provider is MailChimp and you can read their privacy policy in the resources section.
