To make this notice easy to find, we make it clearly available from our homepage and the footer of every page on our site.

Collection Of Personal Information
Personal data refers to any information that can personally identify you. We may collect and store two different types of data about you or your usage of this website:-
Identity Data - specifically your name and email address. We currently only collect this data if you use our contact page to submit an enquiry (where it is only used internally in order to reply to your enquiry), or if you wish to leave a public comment on a blog post where this data will of course be publicly visible along with your comment.
Technical Data - this is standard website log file data such as the IP address used to access the site, the web browser and version used, the device/operating system in use along with the dates and times of access. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, anonymously track users movement through the site and gather broad demographic information for internal use. We also use similar data provided by analytics providers such as Google.
Cookies are small files which ask permission to be placed on your computer. On agreement the file is added and the cookie may help analyze web traffic or allow web applications to respond to you as an individual.
The types of cookies we use fall under the term 'Functionality cookies', which are used to personalize and/or recognize your interactions with the site, such as when leaving a comment on our blog. We also use 'Analytical cookies' which let us monitor and understand the volumes and visitors to our site and how they move around it. This helps us better understand your needs and allows us to improve the site.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
How We Use Personal Information
Our usage of your data is very limited and strictly within the bounds of relevant data laws. We use it to reply to you if you have contacted us, to publish comments you have submitted for public viewing or gather technical/analytics data of your usage of the site. These legitimate interests in your data are made in consideration to any potential impact on you and your rights.
Your data is never sold or rented to any third party, and is only used for the purposes for which it was collected (as set out in this policy).
As an external third party Google may require a transfer of data outside of the European Economic Area. They are however certified under the U.S. Privacy Shield which does provide a similar level of protection to your personal data when shared between the US and UK.
Although the personally identifiable data we hold for you is very limited, we do still have in place reasonable and appropriate levels of security to prevent loss or unauthorised access. Only those parties who directly require access to such data have that access, and are familiar with our privacy policies. In the event of any data breach all parties we are legally required to notify will of course be notified.
Data is only retained for as long as we need it to reasonably fulfil the reasons for which it was collected.
Links to Third Party Websites
We have included links on this site for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own.
Some links on this site can mean we receive a commission should you then choose to sign-up to or join a website or buy a product. This does not affect the price you pay, and in no way impacts our opinion or recommendation of any such product or service. Some of these links will be direct to the site or retailer, others may be directed through other intermediaries (an 'affiliate network'). This process will tend to use a cookie (from the intermediary if applicable) to track the source of the referral/click.
Free-UK-Shares.co.uk is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC and Amazon EU Associates Programmes - affiliate advertising programmes designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
Your Personal Information Rights
You may request details of any personal information which we hold about you. If you would like a copy of any information held on you please contact us. Please be aware we may need to request additional information from you in order to confirm identity and ensure we only provide information to the rightful owner.
Should you believe that any information we do hold on you is incorrect, please email us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
