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. Our SEO report tool is embedded and uses a third-party service to process your email, keyword and website data, then produce your website’s SEO report and email it to you. Your information is stored securely and is not used for any other marketing purposes – apart from Design for Digital Ltd. following up on your initial interest in our service.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

IP Addresses

Our third-party web hosts store your IP address to monitor for suspicious web activity. These records will only identify the computer rather than the individual visiting our website. Monitoring of these IP addresses helps to ensure that your browsing experience on our website is as smooth and reliable as possible.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Should we experience any data breaches of your data we have stored, you will be notified within 5 working days from the time we are made aware of this problem.
