Who is behind geoffmahiques.com?

The website geoffmahiques.com Is owned and operated by myself (Geoff Mahiques). As I put my name to everything I do, I take pride in maintaining the trust and confidence of my visitors, fans and customers. There are not many instances where I need to collect personal information but at every step of the way it is completely optional and anyone that does choose to provide their information for things such as newsletter or for shipping products from the store can rest easy knowing it is in safe hands. Below I will detail the ways in which information is collected and handled.

Types of data collected

This site (geoffmahiques.com) and my other service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means in connection with our Site and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, track the actions of users, to determine the success of marketing campaigns and to compile aggregate statistics about site usage and response rates. This information is collected anonymously, in a manner that does not personally identify you.

Google Analytics

When you visit my website, I use a third-party service, Google Analytics to collect standard traffic data or visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out thing such as the number of visitors to various parts of my site. This information is collected anonymously and as a result, in a way that does not identify the users. I do not make, or permit google to make any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to this website.

Mailing Lists

As part of the subscription service for my newsletter, I collect limited information (First name, Last name and email address). I use that information for the sole purpose of distributing the newsletter. This information is not shared and is held by a third-party mailing list service. The service I use for the mailing list is MailChimp, for more information please see https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/ . Providing this information is completely optional and if you wish to check, amend or remove this information this can be done by contacting Geoff Mahiques. Alternatively, there is an unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of each email I send.
