Privacy Policy

This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitor use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. Note the deliberate emphasis of anonymous, as no personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on this website. So if I need personal info from you – for example information collected via my Contact Us form – I will ask for it and you will have the option to provide it or not.

The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for seointeractive.com.au only. I use these reports to evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that I can optimise the content, and its marketing, to better meet your needs.

I will not link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. I will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

In summary, your anonymity is safe. That is my personal commitment to you.

When Personal Information is Submitted

If you have completed my Contact us form, I request your name and email address and potentially other non-specific service delivery related information. I do this because the more information I have on actual people (as opposed to cookies), the better I can understand your business requirements. If you wish your personal information to be removed from this site, simply contact me at karl@seointeractive.com.au and I will do this at the earliest opportunity.

3rd Party Tracking

I am not a fan i.e. the setting of 3rd-party cookies. If you click on a social love button, most will set a third-party cookie e.g. Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Unfortunately, there is no way around this if you wish to share content socially – social networks use 3rd-party cookies.

My advice is to set your browser to always block 3rd-party cookies. The social buttons will still work, just no visitor data sent to them.
