Visitors to our websites

When someone visits StoryShare we use a third-party service, 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. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this.

We use cookies to track visitors to our websites. To find out more, please see our Cookie Policy.

We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it. We do not pass on or sell online personal information to third parties.

StoryShare is owned and operated by StoryShare Platform Limited.

Email marketing

We use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver our email marketing. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our email marketing. For more information, please see Mailchimp’s privacy notice.

  • tell you why we are holding it;
