Cookies placed by advertising and affiliate networks with the permission of Pointblank-uk.com.

These will send advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit Pointblank-uk.com and, in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This data is generally used for geographical targeting (showing non-UK ads to overseas readers, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited. In some cases, cookies are used to reward Pointblank-uk.com for the generation of leads or sales. 

DART cookies may be used for ads served through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests. The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. DART does not track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this on all sites using this form of advertising by following the guidance here.

The “Your Online Choices” page provided by the Interactive Advertising Bureau provides an easy way to prevent the use of advertising cookies from any or all of the advertising networks that are members of the IAB. You can choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in any security software you run. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with Pointblank-uk.com as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts. Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program.

Email data protection

Who holds your data?  

We use a company called Mailchimp to both manage our email list and to automatically send out our newsletters. Your data is held by Mailchimp and not by Point Blank Fitness Limited. By signing up to our email list, you consent to us passing your data to Mailchimp. Your data may be held outside the European Union.

What do we do with your data?  

Your email address is only used for sending our newsletters. We do not rent our list to third parties and we do not send out advertising material on behalf of third parties.

What data do we hold?  

The only data we request is your email address. You may – at your discretion – add your name to your record by clicking ‘Update Profile’ at the bottom of every email. This makes it less likely that our emails are treated as spam because your name is encoded into the ‘To’ box.

What usage data is collected?  

Mailchimp tracks how many of our emails you open and whether you click on any links. We only use this data to identify and delete accounts which are no longer active, eg a work email address where the employee has left the company. Mailchimp also tracks what device you use to read your emails in order to use the most suitable mailing format.

How can you unsubscribe?   

You may unsubscribe at any point by using the link included in all of our emails. Emails will cease immediately.

How can I get a copy of my Mailchimp data?  

Email contact@pointblank-uk.com from the email address you use for our emails and we will send you a screenshot of your Mailchimp profile.
