Who we are

My website address is: https://griffin-monkcounselling.co.uk.

At Griffin-Monk Counselling, I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of the visitors to my web site. In particular, I want you to know that I am not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. I just don’t do that sort of thing. But just in case you don’t believe me, in this Privacy Policy, I’ve provided detailed information on when and why I collect your personal information, how I use it, the limited conditions under which I may disclose it to others and how I keep it secure. Grab a cuppa and read on.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

When you use the contact form on this website to send me an email, I collect personal information from you. I use contact form submission information only to exchange emails with you about my services, and to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; and to check my records are correct. I do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. I do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.

Cookies

My website uses cookies to collect information. This includes information about browsing behaviour by people who access this website. This includes information about pages viewed and the customer journey around this website.

Embedded content from other websites

Content on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website, for example: LinkedIn.

Analytics

When someone visits www.griffin-monkcounselling.co.uk I use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Who we share your data with

I do not share your data or information with anyone else, or any other organisations without this data being anonymous, such as with Google Analytics, or unless stated otherwise in this policy.

How long we retain your data

I retain any data given to me via this website for as long as you are a client of Griffin-Monk Counselling, and for no longer than six years prior to you ceasing counselling with me.
