Google Analytics and Lead Forensics
When someone visits www.welcom.co.uk we use third-party services, Lead Forensics and Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone individually although it does enable us to identify which companies have been visiting the website. We do not make, and do not allow Lead Forensics or Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
We offer guest WIFI at our premises in Harrogate. When you use our guest WIFI, we may collect data about:

Your data is anonymised and we are not able to identify individual users. The purpose of gathering the data is to ensure that harmful sites are not accessed via the company WiFi.
The main points of access to the company’s premises, the Exchange Building, are monitored via CCTV which is maintained by the building management (Commercial Estates Group). Signage clearly indicates that CCTV is in use and this operates on a 24-hour basis. Unless required for evidential purpose, the investigation of an offence or as required by law, CCTV images will be retained for no longer than 30 days from the date of recording. Images are automatically overwritten after this point.
The main purpose of CCTV is for the prevention, reduction, detection and investigation of crime and other incidents and to ensure the safety of occupants and visitors to the building.
