5. Other Third Party processing activities
If you shorten our site URLs, for example on Twitter or Facebook, we may use services such as goo.gl, bit.ly, tinyurl.com and ow.ly to do so, and our site works with these to rebrand our URLs as a https://rest-uk.com/xxxxx link or https://www.firstchoicesolar.co.uk/xxxxx link. Also our website sometimes offers features that allow users to share links with social networks and our site may shorten that URL using one of these services.
These services provide us with anonymised, aggregated statistics relating to the use of our shortened URL, for example by telling us how many times it has been clicked on. We do not have access to the IP address of your computer collected by these services or any other identifiable information about you. Nor do they have any access to data collected on our website.
