What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on our site, subscribe to our newsletter or fill out a form.

For example, if you’re downloading one of our ebooks or getting in contact, we may ask you to fill in your name, email address, address or phone number. You don’t have to give us any of your information at any time – and you can visit the 256 site anonymously if you want.

How and why do we collect this collect this information?
If you download any of our assets or subscribe to our newsletters, we’ll email you about blog posts, news, events, competitions or anything relevant that might be interesting to you. (Well, we’re not mind readers so don’t be expecting updates on your weird hobbies or your local football team.) We promise we’re a spam-free zone.

What do we use your information for?
We use your information:

  • To personalise your experience: for example, so we can show you content that’s more relevant to you or whatever you’re looking for.
  • To improve our website: so we can improve our site and our offerings based on the information and feedback we get from you. We really like getting your feedback so hit us up if you have anything you feel we need to know.
  • To run any contests, promotions, surveys or other site features.
  • To send our blog posts to you – but only if you want them. You can unsubscribe at any time. We’ll be sad to see you go and happier to keep you around.
  • To send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. Sure you asked a question, so we’re going to reply!

How do we keep this information safe?
We endeavour to ensure that your data is stored securely with no unauthorised access – which is to say that we make sure that no one can get near your data, as much as possible. We have measures in place to protect your information and this is monitored regularly.

How long is this information kept?

Do we disclose, share or sell any information to outside parties?
Of course not! We don’t sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personally-identifiable information to outside parties. Now for the important bit: we *do* use trusted third parties (like Facebook or tweet schedulers or analytics) that help us operate our website, run our business, or help you so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

We may also release your information if/when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information, such as site demographics, may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
