Privacy Policy

The following data privacy notice explains the circumstances in which Round The Code will collect personal data from you, why it is being collected and how we will use it.

The Data Controller

Round The Code is the controller and responsible for your personal data (collectively referred to as "Round The Code", "we", "us" or "our" in this privacy policy).

Round The Code is committed to complying with worldwide data protection laws for the protection of personal data, as well as the principles of data security in the configuration of our services. If you have any questions about this privacy notice or how we use your personal data, please contact us at privacy@roundthecode.com.

Data Being Collected

When you use the contact form or sign up to the newsletter, we will need to take some personal details from you. This is so we can get in contact with you with a reply. You will need to disclose the following:

  • Name (Contact Form only)
  • Email

At present, we are currently not sharing any of this data with any third-party.

When providing your personal details in the contact form, your name and email address will not be shared out with any third-parties without your prior consent, unless you have signed up to the newsletter. At present, you cannot sign up to the newsletter through the contact form. You need to fill out the newsletter form to sign up to the newsletter.

When we start to send out the newsletter, we are likely to use a third-party tool to do this. By signing up to the newsletter, you agree that you are happy for us to use your email address in a third-party mailing tool.

When we start sending out the newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe to the newsletter by clicking on a link in the email. Alternatively, you can send an email to privacy@roundthecode.com and we can remove your email address from our list.

Website Cookies

When you access our website, temporary data about your visit is stored and processed through the use of cookies. This information is anonymous and is used by us to better understand the use of our site, including the number of visitors we have, the pages with the most interest and what device you are using. This allows you to have a better site experience as we use this data to make improvements based on users' behaviour.

Google Analytics

The following data is collected from Round The Code for use with Google Analytics:

  • IP Address and location
  • Date, time and duration of your visit
  • Page title and URL of viewed pages
  • Browser and operating system
  • The URL of the page where the user came from

The data listed above is only used for statistics and improvements to the website. We will not try to identify you by IP address unless we have to do so by law.

By default, browsers will automatically accept cookies. However, you can set your browser options so that they deny cookies. But be aware that by denying cookies, some areas of the site may not perform properly. You can also delete existing cookies from your browser.

To opt out of Google Analytics, you can download the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on which is available on all major browsers.

Google Adsense

We use Google Adsense to deliver advertising based on users' browsing history. This is how Google makes use of cookies:

  • Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to your website
  • Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the internet
  • Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.

Third-party Links

Please note that this data privacy notice only applies to Round The Code. If you click on an advertisement, or a link to another website, you will be redirected to a third-party and we have no control over how your information is used, or what happens with any information you have submitted. Please get in contact with the relevant third party to understand how they use your data.

Length of Stored Data

At present, we have no set time limit as to the amount of time we intend to keep your data.

Request or Removal of Data

You have the right to request what data we hold of you. Please note that this will only be data where we can personally identify you, either through your name or email address. This will not include data that is held through Google Analytics or Google AdSense as we have no way of personally identifying you through these channels.

If you wish to make a request for what data we collect of you, or wish to have your data removed, please email privacy@roundthecode.com. We aim to do this within 28 calendar days of the original request.

This policy will be reviewed and changed from time-to-time. Round The Code reserves the right to change this data protection with effect in the future. Any changes made will be reflected on this page, including what data we collect and how we use the data. We advise you to check out this page from time to time.
