What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We do not collect personal information and share it with any third parties; except in the case of you signing up to our annual newsletter. You can opt out of this at any time – and you must opt into it.

We use cookies in order to analyse content performance; you can turn cookies off at any time by modifying your internet browser settings. You can do so using this guide. 

Comments

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

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

This website does not accept the upload of images from other parties,

Contact forms

If you use our contact form to communicate with me, I do not store that information once our conversation has ceased, nor do I use the information for any other activity than the conversation at first instance.

If you enter in your name and email to the contact form, that information will be forwarded onto me for a time; it will then be deleted after the end of our interaction.

Cookies

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 also set up several cookies to save your login information and your 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 simply 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

By default WordPress does not collect any analytics data.

Who we share your data with

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone. We do not share any data with any third parties, except in the instance you opt into our annual newsletter. If so, we add your email – and name [if you choose to give your name] to our Mailchimp list.

This list is only used for the purpose of our annual newsletter and can be opted out of at any time.

How long we retain your data

 If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Data does not go anywhere else.
