Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.heatspaceandlight.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site (via WordPress) 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.
If you send us a request for a pricing proposal for an MVHR or Airtightness Test, we will collect the data that you submit. This may include your name, project address, project details and drawings, plans and/or elevations. This data will be stored on a password-protected system and not shared with any third party, unless relevant to the progression of the project – and in that case, prior notice will be given and it will be with your permission.
If you leave a comment on our site (via WordPress) 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 visit our login page, 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.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
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 1 day.
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.
The website uses standard Google Analytics web tools to assess web traffic and visitor activity.
Who we share your data with
No-one, unless relevant to the progression of your project, and with your pre-agreed permission.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment (via WordPress), 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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site (via WordPress), or have left comments, 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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments on the website may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
