Information we may collect from our web site

We collect information about visitors to our site in two ways:

1.   Requests you make to contact us

We have a Contact Us page on the site enabling visitors to contact us to request information.  When you do that, we ask for your name, email address and any message you want to provide.  These details are forwarded to our marketing team who will then contact you to respond as you have requested.  We store those contact details in our local PCs only for as long as is necessary to process your queries.  If you are, or subsequently become a customer of Screen Idol, we retain your details in our customer management file, which is a secure passworded system.

None of those details are stored by the web site or our web site provider.   

You may decline any future marketing communication from us at any time or ask us to remove your name from the client list by emailing us at  

2.  Visitor statistics

When someone visits our web site we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out how many visitors we get to our site and how they navigate around it, to help us improve the information and display options. This information does not identify you personally and is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We use it to help us understand which pages are visited most frequently and how we might improve our site for future visitors.

Email communications

We monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software in order to protect the security of our data and the integrity of our systems. 

All our email accounts are passworded, with up-to-date security encryption, and are hosted by our email and website hosting company Mushroom Internet
