Data Protection with IP addresses.
Many customers ask if what we are doing is legal. The short answer is yes. We are only supplying information that is available in the public domain and putting it all in a real time, consolidated and quick to use format.
The Data Protection Act regulates the collection and use of Personal Data. An IP address on its own is not personal data. This is because it is focused on a computer and not the individual using that device.
In addition, we only provide business related (B2B) leads through to you and therefore the opportunity to reach out to these businesses is the same as any other marketing approach you may take when reaching out.
We do not collect information on individuals. We only focus our efforts on identifying the organisation that registered the IP. We will not tell you the name of the individual that visited your website from the company as that is classed as personal data. We will help you find out the name of the company visiting you and the rest of the work to speak to the relevant person is up to yourself.
Our website uses software that tracks your IP data. This information is supplied to us from Whoisvisiting.com. Whoisvisiting.com is a service offered by Whoisdata Limited and uses only information available from the public domain.
When you visit our site we may automatically log your IP address, a unique identifier for your computer or other access device. We will not use your IP address to identify you, the individual, in any way
