I adhere to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) established by the EU. This policy outlines how I gather and handle any information you provide.
Valuing your privacy
I will only use your personal information for the specific purpose you shared it, and I will not grant anyone access to it without your consent, except in cases where legal requirements compel me to do so.
How I collect information
I ask for contact information including your name, email address, and phone number on my website so that I can reply to your enquiry.
I’ll ask for further contact information when you engage my services so that we can do business.
From time to time, I may obtain your contact information through my partners. In such cases, I’ll safeguard it just as securely as if you had shared it with me directly.
What information I hold
When you get in touch via email or this website, I gather your name, email, phone number, and optional company details. If we engage in business, I also gather your business name, postal address, and keep records of invoices and any payments you make. In case you offer me a service, I’ll require your bank details for payments.
Where I store your information
When you reach out via email or this website, I retain your details in my email (using Google Mail). If you become a client, your information is also stored in my accounting and project management software. These systems equally prioritise your privacy and security.
Disclosures of your personal data
I may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below:
- Service providers who provide IT and system administration services.
- Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers.
- Government bodies that require me to report processing activities.
- Third parties to whom I partner with do to business, such as a back-end developer.
I will never share your information with third parties without your explicit permission, unless required by law.
When storing your information in third-party services, I ensure limited access to individuals who require it. Passwords are encrypted and managed using a password manager, with unique, randomly generated passwords for each service to enhance security. I strictly avoid reusing passwords.
This website employs cookies to monitor your site usage, aiding in comprehending patterns and enhancing the website’s development.

I take complaints very seriously. If you have any concerns regarding how your privacy has been managed, please feel free to reach out to Stephen Rowe via the contact form on this website.

If I change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment I publish them on this page.
