What data we need:
The personal data we collect from you includes:
- questions, queries or feedback you leave, including your email address if you contact AIM-Watch.com

Why we need it:
We use Google Analytics software to collect information about how you use AIM-Watch.com. We do this to help make sure the site is meeting the needs of its users and to help us make improvements.
Google Analytics stores information about:
- the pages you visit
- how long you spend on each page
- how you got to the site
- what you click on while you’re visiting the site
Beyond this, we do not collect or store your personal information (for example, your name or address, or other personally identifiable information), so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.
What we do with your data:
We collect data in order to:
- improve the site by monitoring how you use it
- gather feedback to improve our services
- respond to any feedback you send us, if you’ve asked us to
- provide you with more pertinent information
We will not:
- sell or rent your data to third parties
We will share your data if we are required to do so by law – for example, by court order, or to prevent fraud or other crime.
How long we keep your data:
We will only retain your personal data for as long as:
- it is needed for the purposes set out in this document
- the law requires us to
In general, this means that your session activity is held within Google Analytics for a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 5 years.
Once correspondence has been dealt with, emails and email addresses will be removed from our inbox. This can mean a varying time in being held, but in general means they should be held for no longer than 2 years.
Children’s privacy protection:
Our services and information are not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, anyone under the age of 16, nor do we intentionally collect or maintain data about anyone under this age.
Where your data is processed and stored:
Currently we have no reason to transfer personal data. As such, it remains within the platforms it is collected within – namely, Google Analytics.
We will continue to design, build and run our systems to make sure that your data is as safe as possible at any stage, both while it is processed and when it is stored.
How we protect your data and keep it secure:
We are committed to doing all that we can to keep your data secure. We have set up systems and processes to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of your data – for example, we protect your data by regularly changing passwords to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, as well as protecting data against accidental loss.
We also only work with trusted third partners who each have high standards of user privacy and security. We will continue to conduct privacy impact assessments in accordance with the law.
