When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

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.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

This site uses Google Analytics to track website traffic, to help improve the website structure and determine how user-friendly our webpages are. We also use analytics to track the cost/benefit analysis of our promotional campaigns.

Analytics uses temporary cookies to gather anonymous information about our website users. This information can include but is not limited to the users IP address, Location, the device they are using, the referral website, the page they are looking at, how long they looked at that specific page and if they converted to a lead. This information is stored in a text file called a cookie. The cookie is placed on the user’s internet browser system and can be called upon by Google and us to produce detailed reports. With each visit to our site, the cookie is transmitted to Google in America, where the data is stored and may be passed on to third parties.

We will analyse the reports and use the information to create a more user-friendly website and to correct any errors. We will also analyse the reports to ascertain the performance of our online presence.

We use the data for statistical purposes only and then it is removed from the system.

We will not attempt to personally identify you from your IP address unless required to as a matter of law or regulation or to protect our or our customers’ rights.

Google Adwords

Google AdWords is a service, provided by Google, that allows an advertiser to place their ads in the search engine results and the google advertising network. The advertiser must use pre-set “keywords” and supply a relevant ad to be shown in the search results, when a user searches for those specific keywords. Googles automatic algorithm will assess the relevance of the ads in conjunction with the keywords and the landing page; only allowing the most relevant ads to be shown at the top of the search results. In the Google Advertising Network, Google uses another algorithm to distribute relevant ads onto relevant webpages, according to those keywords. Remarketing allows the advertiser to display additional adverts, on participating websites, after the user has left the advertisers website without converting.

When a user clicks through to our website from a Google ad, a tracking cookie is placed on the user’s web browser. This cookie will hold information on the user for up to 30 days before expiring. This information can include I.P addresses, Web browsers used, pages visited, and actions completed but it is completely anonymous – neither Cutitronics or Google receive any information that could identify the user. Each time the user visits our website this data is transferred to Google in the USA and stored for statistical purposes. Google may pass the data on to third parties.

The user can deny the use of cookies, at any time, by changing the settings in their web browser. They can also delete existing cookies, if they so wish. Denying and deleting cookies may affect the functionality of certain websites, including ours, across the World Wide Web.
