We are committed to respecting and maintaining your privacy. We have outlined below how we gather and maintain your details. Please contact us for more information.
Contact and personal information submitted to Pro DBA by email, contact form, telephone or any other method may be retained for the purpose of responding to your correspondence. This information is not used for any other purpose, and we delete this information after one year if not required for ongoing communication.
Our web servers automatically collect and store information from your browser, including IP address, page requested, referring page/search engine and browser software version. We use this information to determine usage trends, and to improve visitor experience. The details cannot be used to identify individual users, and we only use the information in aggregate form.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We do not sell, rent or share your details, and never will.
Confidentiality and security
We limit access to personal details to those employees who require the information to contact you. We employ a number of physical, electronic and procedural measures to safeguard these details, and regularly review these measures to ensure their continued effectiveness.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one day.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles 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.
Rights you have over your data
You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
We have undergone an independent GDPR assessment, which found us to be compliant in all key areas. Our staff have all undergone GDPR training, so are aware of their role in maintaining compliance.
