How We Collect and Use Information
We collect the following types of information about you:
Information you provide us directly:
We sometimes ask for certain information such as your real name, address, phone number, employer’s trading name or your trading name and e-mail address when you request a quote or further information from MWP, if you sign up to our email mailing list, if you claim a special offer or discount, or if you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send in your correspondence with us. We use this information to provide quotes and estimates, and supply our services effectively. People who sign up for our email mailing list will also receive marketing and sales messages, including advertising of our services through third-party advertising platforms.
We collect data using Google Analytics cookies on our website, as do a large number of other websites. We use data in aggregate form, meaning we use this information to see broad trends, not the actions of individual users.
We use collected data to improve our website by analysing how people interact with our existing content, such as pages, blog articles, forms and videos. This helps us to get an idea about what our users are finding useful or where there might be gaps in the information and functionality that we are providing on our website.
This data is also used in our advertising campaigns on other platforms, such as advertising on Google services (for example, Search and YouTube adverts). This use of data allows us to target our adverts to people who are more likely to find them useful, provide more relevant advertising content and to measure the results of our advertising campaigns.
Finally, we run two domains, mwpdigitalmedia.com and mywebpresenters.com, which are part of the same company. As these two brands are highly related and share similar audiences, we will sometimes use analytics data from either site to inform our actions across both domains. We will also use data from both domains to provide better overall advertising campaigns, which could lead to pages on either domain.
We also run remarketing adverts, on Google properties and Google’s advertising partners (which consists of lots of participating websites). These adverts are displayed to people who have previously visited our site, to remind them about our company, products, services and special offers. We use this same information to target ‘similar audiences’ with our adverts. Google uses the aggregate information collected about our website users to target adverts to people who appear to be similar to people who already use our website, and so may be more likely to respond to our adverts. We can create various categories, such as people who visit our website, or people who submitted our forms, for example.

Sharing of Your Information
We will not rent or sell your information into third parties outside MWP and its group companies (including any parent, subsidiaries and affiliates) without your consent, except as noted below:
- This will include storing information with companies that help us process data. We store email addresses, names, phone numbers, company names and other information you chose to share with us with some third party providers. These organisations are all well-established data processors and are compliant with EU data protection laws. They include MailChimp, Zoho and Hubspot. If you opt-in for targeted advertising, this information may also be shared with advertising platforms such as Google and Facebook.
- Who can see your email address: If you enter an email address, you will enable direct communication from MWP. If you chose, you will also enable email marketing from MWP and advertising through third-party providers, such as Google and Facebook.
What happens in the event of a change of control:
We may buy or sell/divest/transfer the company (including any shares in the company), or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or businesses. Your information such as names, email addresses and other user information related to our services may be among the items sold or otherwise transferred in these types of transactions. We may also sell, assign or otherwise transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of the company.
Instances where we are required to share your information:
Keeping your information safe:
MWP cares about the security of your information, and uses commercially reasonable safeguards. However, MWP cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to MWP or guarantee that information on our website or other services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. MWP is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
Compromise of information:
In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, MWP will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
