Your privacy is important to us and our policy follows the golden rule. We treat your privacy as seriously as we treat our own. Want to read more? We suggest you grab a cuppa or glass of something and take a closer look.
Who are we?
Fish It is the manufacturer of a fish-based biostimulant.
It is Fish It’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
- We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
- Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
- We will collect and use personal information solely for fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other ancillary purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
- Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
- We will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
- We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.
- We don’t have an official ‘expiry date’ on your personal information. However, it is likely your data will be removed following a period of inactivity. If we do remove some or all of your personal information, it is in the interests of cleaning up our database to keep track of whether your data is no longer valid.
Sadly, these aren’t gooey, delicious baked goods. We’re actually talking about small text files which get stored on your computer or mobile phone. Cookies basically act as a ‘memo’ on the website – they store your settings, so that the website recognises you when you come back. This way, it behaves like something you’ve been to before – filling in your preferences for example.
Cookies can store a bunch of different information, including personally identifiable things such as your name and email address. They can only store information you’ve shared with us (through a form, for instance). Our website can’t access that information – or any other files – from your computer or mobile phone.
What types of cookies are we using?
There are different types of cookies that remember different types of information. We have two types of cookies in the Fish It cookie tin:
Analytics and performance cookies
These cookies track the performance of the website. It means we can work out how many visitors we have, and how often they come back. It also gives us some insight into which pages people like, or what links get clicked on the most. So we can give ourselves a pat on the back when a content post does well. The data is anonymous unless you previously signed up to our mailing list or commented on the blog. Even then, the cookies mainly remember the information you gave us, but they also hold on to some inferred data points like location and referrals.
Third-party social plug-in cookies
If you share one of our posts using the social media sharing buttons, the relevant social network will track that action through their own cookies. Crucially, we don’t share our cookies. So we can’t access that info, just like they can’t access ours.
What types of cookies are we definitely not using?
We don’t currently (as of the 1st of September 2021) use any type of advertising or third-party advertising cookies. Because we don’t advertise any services other than our own (and we use content to do that, because we don’t believe in wasting our money on expensive ad networks). We also don’t buy or receive any data from third parties.
How do you turn them off?
We prefer to obtain your explicit consent to use certain kinds of cookies. So you can just opt out when you first visit the website and that will be that. Alternatively, you can usually turn off all cookies in your browser settings – either for the internet at large, or the Fish It website in particular, as you prefer. The settings usually live in the ‘Options’ or ‘Preferences’ menu of your browser. If you’re not sure where to find them, the different browser help pages will point you in the right direction.
Thanks for reading, we hope you managed to get through this without the need for a refill!
