What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
Our site has a Contact Form on this page. We use it to gather information about you but only in email form. None of your personal details are stored on this site’s server after you send us your completed Contact Form.
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.
We use Google Analytics software to collect information about how you use our site. We do this to help make sure the site is meeting the needs of its users and to help us make improvements, for example improving site search.
Google Analytics stores information about:
- the pages you visit on our site
- how long you spend on each page
- how you got to the site
- what you click on while you’re visiting the site
The Analytics software does not collect or store your personal information (for example your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.
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.
We keep customer purchase records for as long as needed to assist with any follow-up enquiries. We would not expect this period to exceed ten years.
What rights you have over your data
You have the right to request:
- information about how your personal data is processed
- a copy of that personal data
- that anything inaccurate in your personal data is corrected immediately
You can also:
- raise an objection about how your personal data is processed
- request that your personal data is erased if there is no longer a justification for it
- ask that the processing of your personal data is restricted in certain circumstances
If you have any of these requests, get in contact with us.
Where we send your data
We do not sell or rent your data to third parties and we do not share it with third parties for marketing purposes.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We design, build and run our site to make sure that your data is as safe as possible at every stage, both while it’s processed and when it’s stored.
The personal data we have is unlikely ever to be sent by us outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If this ever does happen, all appropriate technical and legal safeguards will be put in place to ensure that you are afforded the same level of protection as within the EEA.
Our contact information
Please feel free to contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) if you:
- have any questions about anything in this document
- think that your personal data has been misused or mishandled

How we protect your data
We do all we can to keep your data secure. We have systems and processes in place to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of your data – for example, by using varying levels of encryption.
We also make sure that any third parties that we deal with keep all personal data they process on our behalf secure.
