Who we are
Our website address is: https://blueskywebsolutions.co.uk.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. In order to help load webpages faster, we use a third-party plugin called Smush. Smush compresses images to the smallest possible file size. Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers. Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.
We use a number of contact forms on this website. In terms of your personal information, we collect the following data which we retain for either as long as it takes to deal with your query, or to add your contribution to our website. Your personal data recorded is:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
If you granted consent to display your first name and/or last name, and/or URL on our website, then we will do so unless otherwise indicated. If you later change your mind and wish us to remove your personal data from a route entry, then we will do so. If you wish us to erase your personal data, then we are happy to do so. We may keep your contact form submissions for up to one year for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes. We will never give away, rent or sell your information to any third-parties.
If you create, submit, import, save, or publish Event, Venue, or Organizer information, such information is retained in the local database:
- Venue information: name, address, city, country, state, postal code, phone, website, geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude)
- Organizer information: name, phone, website, email
- Event information: website, cost, description, date, time, image
We make use of certain API keys, in order to provide specific features. These API keys may include the following third party services: Google Maps, Facebook, Meetup, PayPal, and Eventbrite (API key, auth URL and Client Secret).

Who we share your data with
We use affiliate links on this website to provide revenue towards its upkeep and costs. We will update the following list as we add new affiliates.
Our affiliates and the affiliate platforms track usage from our website to their website in order to record transactions and commissions when you click on the affiliate link on our website. When you click on an affiliate link on our website, a cookie is placed upon your computer which will expire within (usually) 30 days and if you make your purchase within that time, we receive a commission the proceeds of which go towards to the running of this website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Google Analytics data will be sent to Google servers in the United States.
