A Different Ball Game
At A Different Ball Game, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that A Different Ball Game is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes, we just don’t do that sort of thing.
When someone visits www.adifferentballgame.co.uk we use a third-party service. We allow Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site.
This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. Mailing Lists
As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information.
We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry-standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.
