What personal data I collect and why I collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you contact me via my online contact form I use your supplied details to contact you about your enquiry. Your details are not added to any mailing lists or passed to any other organisation.
If you leave a comment on my 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.
I use Analytical/performance cookies for Google Analytics that allow me to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around my website when they are using it. This helps me to improve the way this website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
You may prefer to disable cookies on this website and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser, or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of this site.
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.
Who I share your data with
I do not share your data with any other organisations unless requested by you to do so, or required by law.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights 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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
