4. Third party service
All Future Star email addresses are hosted with Google's G Suite, so the contents of all emails are stored on google services. We use Google Analytics to monitor how our websites are used. We do not provide Google Analytics with any personal information you provided us, however Google Analytics uses your IP address and other personal information it can detect from your browser to follow you around the web.
We enable live chat support from time to time. This uses the Natterly.com service which may collect personal information (name and email) as well as other information it can detect from your browser including operating system, browser, and IP address. This data collection also happens when the chat widget is not available when nobody is available to respond. The contents of the chat are stored with Natterly.com.
Our accountancy software is hosted on FreeAgent's cloud platform. Personal information may be used for invoices, estimates, bills, projects or timeslips. Our legal obligations to HMRC come before an individual’s right to be forgotten. HMRC requires limited companies by law to keep a copy of their records for at least six years after their accounting year end. Therefore we continue to store personal information for transactions that fall within these periods.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
