What Personal Data do we Collect and why we Collect it
We may collect the following information:
- Contact information including email address.
- Demographic information such as location, technology, preferences and interests.
- Other information relevant to customer surveys and/offers.
- Other information listed below.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
The information input in contact forms is sent as email messages that only a select few are allowed to access. The information is also stored in the database on our hosting server for backup and later reference purposes. Additionally, we collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies.

Embedded Content from other Websites
CommunicationsEmails received are reviewed by one staff member, sent onwards when necessary to other staff members, and deleted as quickly as possible. We do not disclose the names of senders to others outside of RodneyLab, i.e. third parties, without your permission. We use email service providers in the UK. As a result our emails are susceptible to lawful access in the UK, and possibly through unlawful means by the UK Government and by other governments and entities. We select our service providers on the basis of their privacy awareness. We administer a mailing service for notifications by email based on interest in topics that you have explicitly indicated to us. Outgoing messages are processed by our mail service and internet providers.
How Long we Retain your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What Rights you Have over Your Data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we Send Your Data
Visitor comments and information input in contact forms may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Visitors' GDPR Rights
If you are within the European Union, you are entitled to certain information and have certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation. Those rights include:
We will retain any information you choose to provide to us until the earlier of: (a) you asking us to delete the information, (b) our decision to cease using our existing data providers, or (c) we decide that the value in retaining data is outweighed by the costs of retaining it.
You have the right to request access to your data that we store and the rights to either rectify or erase your personal data.
You have the right to seek restrictions on the processing of your data.
You have the right to object to the processing of your data and the right to the portability of your data.
How we Protect your Data
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to any of our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
