Privacy policy

The use of internet services inevitably involves the collection of technical data facilitated by the installation of cookies which may speed up your browsing experience.  This is a summary of the ways in which this website manages your privacy.

Who we are

This website has been constructed via WordPress by Linda Wright, who owns and edits the www.lookingup.me.uk website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The website does not invite comments, so we do not collect any information other than that contained within private emails delivered via a contact form..  Any such email will necessitate disclosure of the sender’s email address and name.  Any other information will be at the sender’s discretion and volition.   The contents of the email will remain private and never shared with third party organisations.  The sender’s address will be retained in order to facilitate future communication, and for no other purpose. Emails that are not likely to incur future responses will be deleted from the mail server after one month.  Any that are retained will have been deemed necessary for business purposes but no information disclosed within them will be used for marketing.

By default the algorithm used to create this site does not collect any personal data about visitors. As there are no forum facilities on this website, there is no other user details than those of register editors.  At the time of writing, Linda Wright is the only registered editor.

Cookies

Word Press installs cookies on users’ machines in order to facilitate communication via forums.  As this website does not offer comment facilities, no cookies are retained for this purpose.

Analytics

By default, WordPress does not collect any analytics data. However, many web hosting accounts collect some anonymous analytics data.  At present, we do not use analytics services for recording technical details of visitors to our website.

Embedded content from the websites

It is anticipated that in future, articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Sharing data

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone, and neither does the Lookingup website editor.

European data protection law requires data about European residents which is transferred outside the European Union to be safeguarded to the same standards as if the data was in Europe. The website uses a British web hosting company which complies rigorously with European law.  Private information disclosed in emails is not shared or sent anywhere, unless the sender requests that it should be.

Your contact information

The nature of our business does not require that we have a Data Protection Officer.  However, any concerns regarding privacy can be addressed via the contact form in an email communication.

YouTube

It is anticipated that our website may use plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.

If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Vimeo

It is anticipated that our website may use features provided by the Vimeo video portal. This service is provided by Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

If you visit one of our pages featuring a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. Here the Vimeo server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo will receive your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo when you visit our plugin or do not have a Vimeo account. The information is transmitted to a Vimeo server in the US, where it is stored.

If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.

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.
