Who we are
Cohesive is a marketing agency working in the tech sector. We’ve given ourselves the mission to discover, craft and share stories powerful enough to make a positive difference in the world. Stories that mention technology, but are mostly about purpose.
Through our website we are able to collect personal data about you. We do this so that we can share our own story and other helpful and expert content with you – true to our purpose. However, we’re only going to do that with your consent. That last bit is extremely important to us. And we take the protection of your data extremely seriously.
Without getting to bamboozling levels of detail, we’re aiming for transparency about how we collect, store and use your data, and we’re stating it as simply as we know how.
What information are we collecting?
Cookies are small text files that are collected by your browser from websites you visit – including ours – and stored on your computer’s hard disk or mobile device. Cookies help the website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time, so you don’t have to re-enter them every time you come back. They also help us – via Google Analytics – to build a picture of how the site is being used and how our content is being consumed, so that we can improve the experience. Most web browsers allow control of cookies through browser settings. You can also disable them, though this will affect the functionality of the Cohesive website (and other sites you visit).
Cohesive uses an analytics tool provided by Google that incorporates cookies to provide reports about usage of the Cohesive website. We get information such as the numbers of unique visitors in any period of time, how they discovered the site, the journey that visitors follow through the site, and where most people spend the most amount of time. This data is anonymous. We do not track your IP address so we’ve no way of identifying you as an individual through Google Analytics.
If you sign up for updates, then you are giving us consent to contact you specifically when we have new, valuable content that we think will interest you. We will store your name and email address so that we can mail it to you. As we said above, we use MailChimp to do that.
If you comment on an article we publish on the Stories section of the Cohesive website we will collect and store your name, email address and your comment. We collect your email specifically so that you can be notified when one of us replies to your comment. Please note, your name and comment may be published on our website, but your email won’t be.
