WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION AND WHAT DO WE HOLD?
Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, Form by Thought uses Google Analytics (GA) to track 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.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us.
GA can record your computer’s IP address – but we use IP anonymisation so this information is not available to us.
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
Remember the risks whenever you use the internet. While we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to Form by Thought. In addition, other internet sites or services that may be accessible through Form by Thought have separate data and privacy practices, and therefore we disclaim any responsibility or liability for their policies or actions. You have the ability to prevent your computer from accepting cookies but, if you do, certain functionality on our website and other sites may be impaired.
Form by Thought uses Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors use our website. We use the information to compile reports and to help us continually improve the website. For more information regarding Google Analytics please visit: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html

How do we share information?
