About Us

BristolWeb.Design is a website design and hosting business owned and operated by Joseph Buxton. Our office is based in Bristol, United Kingdom. Our business number is 07881 671155. 

Information We Collect

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, BristolWeb.Design collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BristolWeb.Design’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BristolWeb.Design’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BristolWeb.Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

BristolWeb.Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. BristolWeb.Design only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the BristolWeb.Design website choose to interact with BristolWeb.Design in ways that require BristolWeb.Design to gather personally-identifying information, such as through leaving a comment on a blog post. The amount and type of information that BristolWeb.Design gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide their name, email address, and website. Those who wish to receive BristolWeb.Design updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, BristolWeb.Design collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BristolWeb.Design.

When a user makes a comment, an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

BristolWeb.Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on BristolWeb.Design’s behalf or to provide services available at BristolWeb.Design’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using BristolWeb.Design’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. BristolWeb.Design will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, BristolWeb.Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when BristolWeb.Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BristolWeb.Design, third parties or the public at large.

If you have subscribed to the BristolWeb.Design mailing list and have supplied your email address, BristolWeb.Design may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new blog posts, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with BristolWeb.Design. If you send us an email, we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. BristolWeb.Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
