If we could run this site without collecting any data or using any cookies we would, however for some core functionality we have to. But we have done everything we can to keep this to an absolute minimum, which we have explained below.
Where data is collected or used:
- Contact form: the contact form on this website asks for certain contact details and information related to your enquiry. This allows you to share only what you would like to, though of course we will need to know some things like name, email and phone number to be able to get in touch. Your emails are stored while required and then deleted when the enquiry is finished. We never share this information except in two instances with your permission first: 1) if you are a design client and your project is sent to landscape contractors 2) if you have entered a competition and your details are needed by the provider of a prize to send it to you.
- Registration sign up for subscription to the main website: this is where you register and pay a subscription (monthly or annually) for access to subscriber only content. To make this functionally work, the website needs to save your full name, email address, and an encrypted password. This lets you login to access content, change your account and receive emails to change your password if forgotten. Cookies are used here to keep you logged in if you want to be kept logged in between visits. The subscription process also uses the secure PayPal service to manage payments away from this website. PayPal has its own cookie and data policy for that. JackWallington.com does not see or collect any of your banking details.
- Email newsletter: to sign up to receive the newsletter, we need your name and email address. When signing up for a subscription to the site you will automatically be added to the subscriber’s newsletter. Each newsletter has an analytics report saying how many opens and clicks are made on that newsletter. You can unsubscribe from these at any time that you wish by clicking the unsubscribe links in the newsletter emails themselves.
Protecting your data
In all of these cases Jack Wallington Garden Design Ltd. will never pass or share your information to other companies. The two exceptions are with competitions when we may need to ask your permission to directly to share your info to send out a prize, and as mentioned above, when a garden design client’s project reaches the point of needing to brief contractors and suppliers.
