Who I am
My website address is: https://www.carolynebennett.com. My business premises are located at: Firs Farm, Capers End Lane, Curdridge Southampton, SO32 2DS.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
This site uses very few cookies, the ones it does use are for aggregated statistical tracking purposes and do no identify the user. You are not tracked on this website but when you return you may notice the site responds more quickly.
Should users wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website onto their computer’s hard drive, they should take necessary steps within their web browser’s security settings to block all cookies from this website and its external serving vendors.

Do I share your data?
Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
The Google Analytics Terms of Service, which all Google Analytics customers must adhere to, prohibits sending personally identifiable information (PII) to them. This is a policy that I expressly agree and comply with.
Anonymising IP Addresses
For your privacy and protection, my website analytics settings are set to anonymise a visitor’s IP address. This means that Google Analytics will substitute the final 3 digits of any visitor’s IP address with ‘000’ so that it cannot be tracked to an accurate location. Google Analytics will be able to establish a country and perhaps a region of origin, but won’t be able to isolate a more detailed location such as a specific town or city. My website settings also instruct Google Analytics to refrain from tracking visitors who include a ‘Do Not Track’ header when browsing our site.
Your contact information
Your contact information is retained by me for future correspondence between only you and I. You have the right to request that I delete your contact information. However, I may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes (including to help address fraud and spam).
How I protect your data
Your data may be available to me via a personal computer that resides permanently on my premises or via a mobile phone or other device. This computer requires a password-protected access procedure in order to access any data contained on the internal hard drive. Further password-protected procedures exist in order for me to access webmail or IMAP email accounts. My mobile devices are protected with fingerprint encryption or 4-6 digit numeric access codes.
You may have signed up for my newsletter via the website or at a Soul Tribe event. This information is held securely on a site called MailChimp and is accessed by my Marketing Manager who also complies to the above ‘How I protect your data’
