If there are any points of this policy with which you are not happy, please leave our website and cease using it immediately. We take seriously the protection of both your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all visitors to our website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them and will not fall into the hands of a third party accidentally. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of any information you provide to us, and trust you will reciprocate this also. This policy complies with UK law, including GDPR. You can visit www.knowyourprivacyrights.org and read the information provided there to learn about your rights and also our obligations to you, in regards to processing your personal data. Unless we inform you otherwise, we will not share, sell or disclose any personal data to a third party.
Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you. If you are a client of Pixel Primate we process your data to communicate with you about on-going jobs, to answer enquiries and to process financial information such as invoices, credit notes, remittance advice and estimates. We may also process this data to verify your identity for security purposes, advise and sell services and/or products to you, provide services and/or products to you, or provide you with suggestions on services and/or products.
We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract. Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
Information we process with your consent. As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a few reasons, namely: to inform you about us, the work we are doing or have done, our opinions on a range of topics as covered in our blog and apprise you of any offers available; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including job opportunities and enquiries about our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply. Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website. If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to select associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful. We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.

When someone visits this website 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 things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
Information we process because we have a legal obligation. Like everyone else, we are subject to the law. On occasion, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation, such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information.
Complaints regarding content on our website. We attempt to moderate user generated content, but we are not always able to do so as soon as that content is published. If you complain about any of the content on our website, we shall investigate your complaint. If we feel it is justified or if we believe the law requires us to do so, we shall remove the content whilst we investigate. Free speech is a fundamental right, so we have to make a judgment as to whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content that offends you. If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.
Information relating to your method of payment. Payment information is never taken by us or transferred to us either through our website or otherwise. At the point of payment, you will be presented with a branded invoice and payment details for services provided will be presented on this invoice.
Job application and employment. If you send us information in connection with a job application, we may keep it for up to six years in case we decide to contact you at a later date. If we employ you directly or indirectly for the purpose of our business, we collect information about you and your work from time to time throughout the period of your employment or application. This information will be used only for purposes directly relevant to your employment. After your employment or application to us for our business purposes has ended, we will keep your file for six years before destroying or deleting it.
Sending a message to our support team. When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.

We keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high quality service.
Complaining. When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint. If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is. We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
Affiliate and business partner information. This is information given to us by you in your capacity as an affiliate of us or as a business partner. It allows us to recognise visitors that you have referred to us, and, if applicable, to credit to you commission due for such referrals. It also includes information that allows us to, if applicable, transfer commission to you. The information is not used for any other purpose. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. We expect any affiliate or partner to agree to reciprocate this policy.
