We collect the visitors' browser user agent string (which identifies the operating system and the browser you are using) so we can serve different web pages to different web browsers and different operating systems.
Upon your agreement, we collect your postcode and demographic data so we can process the suggestions you provide through our website more effectively and make sure they are representative.
We use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect information on how you use the site, using cookies and page tagging techniques. The information Google and we collect doesn't identify anyone, and is kept for a maximum of 38 months.

Improve the site by monitoring how you use it
Avoid automated spam and abuse
Our website will place “cookies” on your computer to help improve your experience when you visit our site, detect spam and navigate through our site. You can delete cookies using your browser settings (these vary depending on which software you are using). We use the following cookies:
A cookie responsible for the session identifier. This is an anonymous non-tracking cookie that expires at the end of the session or after 24 minutes. Its’ only purpose is to generate an anonymous session identifier that allows us to process your data.
Anti-CSRF cookie to prevent attacks. This is a session-only cookie that sends an encrypted identifier between you and our web app. It is an anonymous cookie that expires at the end of the session.
Cfduid cookie to detect malicious visitors and prevent attacks. It uses an anonymised version of your IP address. The cookie is a session-only cookie that expires after 30 days.

We don't use any other cookies, tokens or beacons. We do not store your IP address in any format in our database.
5. Facebook (visitor action pixel)
We use the “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc on our website. This allows user behavior to be tracked after they have been redirected to the PlaceBuilder website by clicking on a Facebook ad.
This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes (only when you have been redirected from Facebook to our website). The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see nor have access to personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you.
If you feel we have been unable, or unwilling, to resolve your information rights, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). The ICO is the supervisory authority responsible for data protection in the UK.
For further information, including independent data protection advice and information in relation to your rights, you can contact the Information Commissioner at:
