What Information Askews Accountants Collects

Our site collects anonymous information about the visitors to our website for analytics purposes. The ONLY personal information collected is from users who complete the contact form, request a callback or sometimes those who provide information over the phone when calling with an enquiry.

The information collected from visitors to this 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 online assessment 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.

How Askews Accountants Uses the Collected Information

The information collected anonymously for the purposes of Google Analytics enables Askews to improve the user experience and better understand its users. The information we collect is used to generate reports to make the site more user friendly and to determine which types of content are most appealing for our users.

Will We Contact You?

Only on your request, by completing any of the contact forms and by submitting your information you authorise Askews to contact you about any information we believe you are interested in, such as a monthly newsletter, new services, or training events.

Sharing Your Information

We will not sell your information, trade it with any other third party, or use it for any other purpose other than to communicate to you offers or information about Askews’s own service offerings, or closely related events or opportunities that we would reasonably consider you to have an interest in based on your initial or any subsequent requests.

How Long Will We Keep Your Data?

We will hold your personal information on our systems only for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract that you hold with Askews. We will keep your data securely within our database unless you request otherwise.
