PRIVACY POLICY

We do not want to steal your identity. Well, if you are really rich and have a villa in California, maybe we do, but usually we don’t. What follows is our data and privacy policy. You might not really care much but apparently, we have to have one. Privacy is important. Just remember the last time there was no lock on a bathroom door you were using. Never a nice moment keeping one foot against the door. So, we don’t want you to feel that you have to keep a metaphorical foot against the data door either.

Some of what follows will get a bit boring. My legal people tell me that we have to say it. So, to keep things interesting, we will interject some random nonsense along the way.

PRIVACY POLICY

Glacier Consulting LTD operates the www.kenhughes.info website. Glacier Consulting LTD is committed to safeguarding the privacy of the visitor to kenhughes.info website. That means that we will not sell your data to aliens who are looking to harvest your organs. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our website and the choices you have associated with that data. Because choices are important. Chicken or ham? Wine or beer? Pizza or a 5k run?

Any such information will only be used to contact you or send you the requested information. Your personal information will not be shared with any third parties, except as required by law. Also, you are really lucky if you’ve been invited to a thirdparty. Dammit, I haven’t even been invited to one today, not to mind three.

You have the right to request a copy of your personal information and have it corrected or removed from our files. Contact us for enquires to: hello@kenhughes.info. We will basically just have your email and name really. That’s it. If you wish to change your name to something with more sparkle, go for it. We can store your data as ‘Glitter_Bomb45’ if you like, we will still know it is you.

We use your data to provide you with relevant and related to our business information and to improve our services. We will not send you random cat videos. By subscribing to any of our services, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible from www.kenhughes.info. Woah, that last bit was heavy and a bit confusing. Here is a cat video as a mental sorbet:

Information Collection and Use

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide relevant information related to the service you have subscribed and improve our Service to you. We will collect a blood sample if given the opportunity. But only at night, if you haven’t eaten garlic, have a nice neck and are a virgin.

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data

While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to send you Ken Hughes’ blog posts, any relevant information around its content or identify you (“Personal Data”). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:

  • Email address
  • First name and last name
  • Cookies and Usage Data

 

When we say we collect cookie data, we are not counting the number of biscuits you have with your tea or coffee. Although if you wish to submit this information to us daily, or hourly, we will happily track your progress and motivate you to eat more or less, whatever your objective is. We believe in cookies.

Usage Data

We may also collect information how the Service is accessed and used (“Usage Data”). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. We know that all sounds a bit stalkerish. But it is useful for us to know how long people spend on certain pages on the website so we know where to put the cat videos.

Tracking & Cookies Data

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service and hold certain information. We will not walk behind you and lay down a line of chocolate-chip cookies as you walk. Well we might, but if we do, we promise to eat them all later.

Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. The cookie monster is a character in Sesame street. That’s just a random fact. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our Service. When I was 14, I once followed a girl I liked around a teenage disco. But I don’t think that’s the kind of tracking my legal people are talking about here.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service. Also if you do not accept cookies, you will be very thin and not enjoy melty chocolate with your tea.

Examples of Cookies we use

  • Session Cookies.We use Session Cookies to operate our Service.
  • Preference Cookies.We use Preference Cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.
  • Security Cookies.We use Security Cookies for security purposes.
  • Chocolate Cookies. We eat these in our office but not at our desks as the crumbs get in the keyboards

Use of Data

Glacier Consulting Ltd uses the collected data for various purposes:

  • To provide and maintain the Service
  • To notify you about changes to our Service
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service when you choose to do so
  • To provide customer care and support
  • To provide analysis or valuable information so that we can improve the Service
  • To monitor the usage of the Service
  • To detect, prevent and address technical issues

All that talk about ‘the service’ makes us kind of sound like the FBI. I like it. We are not the FBI but we do have the t-shirts that say we are. That’s enough, right?

Transfer Of Data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside Ireland and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to Ireland and process it there. But you don’t need to really worry about that as Ireland is a magical land full of fairies and leprechauns. Your data is as a safe as the crock of gold at the end of the rainbow!

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer. Also, if you provide us with your bank details, there is a Nigerian Prince who wants to deposit $2.2m dollars in it apparently. Just saying.

Glacier Consulting Ltd will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information. In practical terms, this means that if the VP of Client Development in the US needs an email address to contact you, the client, we might email it to her so she can use it. I mean, how else would she get it? We can’t have her swimming across the Atlantic in a wet suit every time she needs an email…

Disclosure Of Data

Legal Requirements

Glacier Consulting Ltd may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • To comply with a legal obligation
  • To protect and defend the rights or property of kenhughes.info
  • To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service
  • To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public
  • To protect against legal liability

This all sounds very threatening. We will safeguard your data as if our lives depended on it. If an ex contacts us and wants to find out where you are, we won’t tell them. If your partner wants to know who drank the last of the beers (and we know it was you), we won’t say anything. If your colleagues want to know who took the last cookie (and it was definitely you) we are saying nothing. We have your back.

Security Of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. But look, it is more secure than the rhythm method. Just ask my young daughter. She exists because of that (she interestingly has fantastic rhythm!)

Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service (“Service Providers”), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

We choose our partners well. There is a test. It involves an army obstacle course and G-Force chambers. That is all you need to know.

Analytics

We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

  • Google Analytics

You can read the Privacy Policy for Google Analytics here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

And let’s face it, Google already knows everything about you anyway, perhaps even more than you know yourself.

Links To Other Sites

The website can contain hyperlinks to third party websites. They are provided for information purposes only. Kenhughes.info cannot be held liable for their content.  There are all sorts of crazy people and stuff out there. The other day I saw a You Tube video of a goat ice-skating.

Furthermore, one cannot deduct from the link to those website any explicit or implicit collaboration between kenhughes.info and the said third party. It was not me dressed up as a goat. I swear.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services. We did not make the goat do it.

Children’s Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your children have provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers. Why children would be on the kenhughes.info website when they could spend another 12 hours per day on YouTube, Netflix and Snapchat is beyond me.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. And you will immediately rush to read it. Because that is what people do. Read privacy policies because they are so exciting and entertaining.

We will let you know via email and/or a prominent notice on our Service, prior to the change becoming effective and update the “effective date” at the top of this Privacy Policy. And you will most likely click “yeah whatever, go away” immediately. Well, such is life.

You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page. So, put it in your calendar, like maybe once a month. Check every privacy policy of every service you are subscribed to for any small changes. Because that would be fun?
