What personal data do we collect and why do we collect it


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

Contact forms

When you submit a contact form, new client enquiry form or help desk ticket, or subscribe to Threesides’ e-newsletter we collect the information that you provide. This data is stored and processed on the website and our CRM.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

When you log in, we will set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google Analytics, Tag Manager and Optimize services, as well as Facebook Analytics, FullStory, Hotjar, Microsoft Clarity, and Campaign Monitor to understand how our website is performing and how you interact with it. This allows us to improve our services and provide you with the best experience.

Each of these services is governed by their own privacy policy and you should refer to their website for detailed information. By using this site, you implicitly agree to be subject to their terms of use.

Analytics platforms may use a combination of cookie data, browser fingerprinting and IP address matching to combine platform data provided to add context to analytics data collected on-site.

Who do we share your data with

Any data shared by the above Analytics tools are processed anonymously, and no confidential information is automatically shared with them. If you provide your contact details, or any other information in any of the forms on this site, some of these services may collect that information for Threesides to use. This information is not used outside of Threesides.

We partner with Microsoft Clarity and Microsoft Advertising to capture how you use and interact with our website through behavioural metrics, heatmaps, and session replay to improve and market our products/services. Website usage data is captured using first and third-party cookies and other tracking technologies to determine the popularity of products/services and online activity. Additionally, we use this information for site optimization, fraud/security purposes, and advertising. For more information about how Microsoft collects and uses your data, visit the Microsoft Privacy Statement.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Aggregated website analytics are stored indefinitely, however, user-level data is automatically removed 60 days after your last interaction on our website.

At any point, you can request Threesides to remove user-level information where identification of data can be made via contacting us via the contact details below.

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
