Collection of data
We explicitly ask you to allow Cookies through a notice on our website when you first use the site. After a period of time, these preferences expire and you will be asked again.

When using www.mikeweavercommunications.co.uk or www.mwc.co.uk, data is collected by an external service, Google Analytics. This service allows us to collect information on user and visitor behaviour within our website and through the use of our e-newsletter, which is distributed through a third-party provider, MailChimp (there is a section on this service and our use of it further on).
We use Google Analytics to allow us to understand how effective our website and content is at delivering value and meeting customer expectations. The way we process this data is to understand how many visitors use certain parts of our site, how much time they spend on those areas, and what pages on our website they visit next. It allows us to work from a user’s perspective so that we can deliver the best experience possible. This information is not used for the purposes of identifying anybody, and we do not attempt to do so. Additionally, the provider of this service, Google, does not attempt this either.
When you first visit our website, a window will appear on the page asking you to subscribe to our e-newsletter. If you choose to do so, you have the option to select what kind of marketing material you want to receive from us.
There is no requirement for you to sign-up. However, we feel that your experience with us is greatly improved if you decide to receive further communications from us.
You also can opt-in through the user area on the website by ticking the box to subscribe to our e-newsletter.
Our e-newsletter is delivered by the service MailChimp. We gather statistics and information regarding email opening and click rates using the industry-standard technologies contained within the software. This allows us to monitor the performance of our marketing content against industry statistics. For more information, MailChimp has a privacy notice available to view here.
You can unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time, by clicking ‘unsubscribe’ on the bottom of an email from us. Another way to do this is by emailing our Marketing team via email@example.com with a request to be removed from the list.
When purchasing products through our site, payments are processed by SAGE Pay or PayPal. Our shopping cart system is built through a provider called Actinic.

Additionally, we have an SSL certificate, meaning that all card information is kept private.
