Google Analytics tracks anonymous, general behavioural data from every user that browses this website. Examples of some (but not all) data that Google Analytics will store are: Device Information, Operating System, Page Clicks and Location. Google is absolutely fully compliant with GDPR and as aforementioned, stores the data absolutely anonymously. This website does not store personal or special data, nor does it run any type of script, plugin or AI technology that could extract information from Google Analytics that could be tracked back to a specific individual. Data such as Location is generic information i.e. If a visitor from London, England is tracked browsing on this website, it would be impossible to ascertain information on who that exact individual is, therefore also remaining anonymous. Google Analytics does not store information such as IP Addresses & Email Addresses and therefore the admin of this website will also never have access to that information either.
OPT-OUT OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS
There is of cause, the option to completely opt out of Google Analytics. The simplest way to opt out would be by installing a browser add-on that can do this very easily for you and for other websites too. The absolute recommendation of what browser opt-out add-on to use would be entirely the decision of the user. Below is a potential opt-out add-on to use that should be available for your browser but please be cautious and responsible before installing this add-on. This is a recommendation and therefore this website or the website admin cannot and will not be held responsible for any damages or costs incurred in relation to the installing and usage of this or any other add-on.

CONTACT SUBMISSION FORM
The submission form on the contact page (http://newsomemma.co.uk/contact/) collects two pieces of personal information (Name & Email Address). The user is not required to submit their full name or legal name if they do not wish to disclose this information. The submitted email address also is not required to be a currently in-use & working email address. However, if a false email address is supplied then there could be two negative consequences of this submission; 1) The false email address could be considered as junk by the recipient (website admin) email account and/or 2) The recipient (website admin) will not be able to directly reply to the contact submission. Regardless of the whether or not the contact form is populated & submitted with the personal information being accurate and correct to that specific individual, those details will never be stored in any kind of document database, will not be used for any form of marketing and will certainly never be given or sold to any 3rd party source. The information in received contact form submissions may be stored or archived in the email account inbox of the website admin but this record will be absolutely private and will solely be used for any potential reference required by the website admin in any specific future purpose which requires the email and the information inside it.
