Our website address is https://goldenforensics.com.
We take your personal data and your privacy seriously, and protecting your privacy is our priority. This page explains how the information we collect through this website will be treated. Since we are not lawyers, we’ll provide this information in the FAQ style.
What information do you store?
We store user input data sent through the contact forms on this website, along with meta-information about the submissions, including the time stamp, the origin IP address, and the user agent (browser). Also, third-party services may collect information about website visitors. We currently use Google Analytics on this website (See the Google Analytics section below.).
Where does the information go?
We use the Contact Form 7 plugin to manage contact form submissions. The information is sent as email messages that only a select few on our team are allowed to access. The information is also stored in the database on our hosting server for backup and later reference purposes. We use the Flamingo plugin to safely manage this data. WP Engine hosts this website.
How long do you keep the information?
We don’t set a particular time limit on storing information because we need it for future reference. If you want your information to be removed from our database, please contact us. We will remove it anytime there are concerns about your privacy.
Do you share the information with other parties?
No, although we do use some WordPress plugins on this website that may pass data, including personal information, to external servers to process, such as Akismet Anti-Spam or Jetpack by WordPress.com.
We only use WordPress plugins and themes that are hosted by WordPress.org. WordPress.org’s guidelines clearly prohibit tracking users without their explicit informed consent.
What does Google Analytics do and why does Golden Forensics use it?
Google Analytics tracks usage data about visitors to goldenforensics.com by storing cookies on your computer. Google Analytics helps us to evaluate and report on the use of our website. We use Google Analytics to find out:
- How many visitors use our website
- How our website is used
- What’s popular on our website, and what’s not
- Whether visitors return to our website
What information about me do you collect?
We do not collect detailed personal information when we use Google Analytics. We only know what city a user is from, what type of device a visitor is using to view our site, and how a visitor found our site (for example, Facebook, Instagram, or a Google search). This gives us a broad-picture idea of how our website is performing which is essential for devising an overall marketing strategy and allows us to know if we are appealing to our intended audience.
Do you know my name and where I live?
All data is anonymized, meaning the cookies carry no personally identifiable information. These cookies help us to understand our visitor’s behavior and allow us to make improvements to better our user’s experience. We do not run personalized ads. Therefore, the Google Analytics platform on goldenforensics.com does not collect the following personally identifiable information:
- Your name
- Home address
- Date of birth
- IP address
How do you find out this information?
Can I opt-out?
Yes, you can install a browser plugin that will opt you out of any site that uses Google Analytics. You can find the Google Opt-Out plugin here.
What is Google reCAPTCHA?
Google reCAPTCHA is a security service provided by Google that helps to protect sites from spam and abuse. We use Google reCAPTCHA on our contact form.
