The information we collect


If you simply wish to browse our website, no personal data is directly collected by us. A single cookie is used to check if you have accepted our cookie and privacy policies. With all cookies on this site personal information is not contained in the cookies, however, it may be possible to use the information in combination with other data to build a personal profile. This is why we secure our site to prevent malicious access.

Contact Forms

If you contact us through our form, we may contact you in return. Some bureaucratic idiots have decided we now need to state this rather than accept your common sense. When you submit information to us through the contact form it is sent directly to us and not stored on our website. This email is only accessed by Digital Smithy. After responding to the email and resolving the enquiry, the email will be deleted. You are not added to any list or marketing campaign and your data is not retained.
