What Information Charles Hogarth Landscapes Ltd Collects
Charles Hogarth Landscapes Ltd collects anonymous information about the visitors to our website for analytics purposes, and personal information from those users who complete the contact form, or sometimes those who provide information over the phone when calling with an inquiry.
The information collected from visitors to the website is anonymous and is used for tracking purposes to determine, for example, the number of pages visited in the session, the length of time spent on each page, and the frequency of visits to the website.
Once a visitor completes the contact form, participates in a competition, accesses information behind a ‘wall’ (where the user must provide their personal details such as an email address) or contacts the company by email or phone, any data coming from that exchange will be recorded and kept in our database.
The collected information can include your name, company and job title, address and contact details.
