Analytics
I use Google Analytics to better understand what people look at on this website.

When someone visits Prevolving then information about their visit, such as what pages they looked at, how much time they spent on those pages and what country this visitor is browsing the site from is sent in an anonymous form to Google Analytics.

This data only contains information about anyone who is browsing my website from your computer and there is no way to identify a specific individual from this data.

I ensure that no personally identifiable information is ever contained within the data sent to Google Analytics.

As analytics information is not personal data, I do not specifically ask for your prior consent.

Additional information

How I protect your data
I take the security of personal data and this website very seriously.

The data collected is protected in a number of ways:

Access control: The data is only accessed by one person, the owner of this website: Milo Kinsey.
Dedicated security software: I operate dedicated security scanning and access control software on this website. This software limits login attempts to my site, blocks potentially malicious attempts to access our services, and regularly performs full file system scans.
Data encryption: This website is secured with SSL encryption, which means that all traffic to and from my server is encrypted. This also applies to my own administrative access to the website.
Selection of third party service providers: I use a minimal number of third party service providers, but some are essential for the provision of physical hosting environments and email list services. One of the core factors in the selection of such providers is their ability to provide secure systems and processes.

What data breach procedures I have in place
As this website is run by one person (Milo Kinsey) there are no internal reports about a potential data breach. The website and servers are regularly scanned for data breaches by using dedicated security software, and all programs used on this website are always updated to the latest version. If any data breach was to be detected this would be reported to the appropriate authority immediately.

Social Networks
I don’t use third party services such as social share buttons and/or similar features.
