About Us, etc.

PLEASE NOTE that this is one of our older sites. It has been here online, more or less untouched, since around 2008. The time has come for an update, which will be happening shortly (late-2013). Meanwhile please enjoy it in its present form.


The contents of this page relate to all sites and blogs ("the sites") on the domain Around-England.co.uk and its subdomains, plus the domain InOldPhotos.com and its subdomains.

This is where we provide information about ourselves and about the sites.

It is also where we deal with the technical/legal matters which appear to be so essential in a litigious age full of self-seeking and mistrust. Sad, but there it is. It's the age we live in.

Who and where are we?

The sites are owned by, and the domain names Around-England.co.uk and InOldPhotos.com are registered in the name of:   David J. Murray

Disclaimer

All information on the sites is provided in good faith. We believe it to be accurate but provide no warranties or guarantees. Users of the sites must carry out their own due diligence and arrive at decisions on their own responsibility before acting on any information provided in the sites. We will not be held liable for any loss or damage of any kind or any other consequence or lack of consequence from acting on information provided in the sites.

Commercial Commissions: Users of the sites should be aware and are hereby informed that many of the external links on the sites lead to pages owned by third parties and that when items are purchased we will receive commission payments. Users should assume that such is the case. Although we strive to ensure that information provided by ourselves is accurate and fair users should exercise their own due diligence in making purchasing decisions.

Privacy

We understand that privacy online is important to users of the sites, especially when conducting business.

What Personally Identifiable Information is collected? We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors. Currently, apart from the fact that our site tracking and monitoring system records IP addresses when certain links are clicked we do not gather or store user data on these sites. We do not use IP addresses to identify individuals, but use them solely to calculate how many different individual visitors are using the sites. We do not currently collect information such as names, addresses or phone numbers and do not operate a mailing list system or store email addresses of site users other than for purchasers of books from our own stock as indicated below.

Third Parties. Most of the advertisements on our sites are for third party businesses such as Amazon and advertising customers of Google. Many of these involve affiliate relationships between ourselves and the company concerned. Any purchases made by a visitor to our sites will be on the basis of contract between the visitor and the company concerned. We do not supply products or services direct to our visitors except in a small number of cases involving the sale of books from our own shelf stock. When one of our visitors clicks through to a site operated by another organisation we have no control over any subsequent information gathering or use, although we believe that we are promoting the services of reputable and responsible organisations. Such third parties may collect information from our visitors and customers. We do not control how these third parties use such information and our privacy policy does not cover its collection or use.

Sale of books from our own stock. In the case of books sold direct by ourselves from our own shelf stock (currently suspended - Sept 2013) we collect and store only such data as is necessary to fulfil the order and to maintain a supportive supplier-customer relationship. We never have access to credit card or other financial information relating to our customers. Payments are handled by third parties, usually PayPal, and prior to the dispatch of a book to the address supplied we are simply informed that the appropriate payment has been made.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes? We will seek to keep this policy statement up to date as and when any changes take place in the operation of the sites such as are likely to affect the use of personally identifiable information.

External Links. Once again, our web sites contain links to other web sites not controlled by us. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving to another web site. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites as their privacy policies may differ from ours.
