Website visitor tracking

Like most websites, this site tracks user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

We use tools including Google Analytics (GA), which although it records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to identify you, but Google do not grant us access to this.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

You can block cookies by activating the settings on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings to refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon you visit our site.

Data capture and storage

If you choose to complete our website contact form, enquiring about our services, this information will be sent via email to info@ignite-tec.com, which is accessed by our sales team for processing your enquiry.

For sales and marketing purposes we may collect the following personal data – name, job title, company name, company address, business email address, telephone number and your areas of interest where this is provided.

If you would like to change how we process your information for marketing purposes, you can opt-out at any time by emailing info@ignite-tec.com.

For non-marketing purposes, we may collect additional personal data as necessary for our engagement with you (as candidate, employee or contractor) and we will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected.
