What personal data we collect and why we collect it


This website is made using WordPress. No cookies are used by WordPress other than when an administrator logs into the Login page. This is not for customer use and is for administrator access for site management. The link to this page is not provided in the menus for this reason. WordPress does mention a cookie will be set when visiting this page.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.


WordPress does not collect any analytics data. Our web hosting account that is currently GoDaddy does collect some anonymous analytics through for use on their dashboard. This shows a users IP address which is a numbered address of the computer given by your router to send the website data to after a connection. It is how computers communicate over the internet. This IP address does not have any other information connected to it and is anonymous. 

The analytics produced from this is to show the number of visits to the website or the separate pages during different time periods such as months and years. This feature is mostly standard on hosting companies now by default when you host a website. 

No information is recorded from the users from use of  this website other than the anonymous IP address of a user by our hosting company we use GoDaddy. We do not use this data in anyway and it is done automatically by GoDaddy host software.
