What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

If you choose to contact us, your name, email address and IP may be collected by us in order to verify you are who you say you are. These details will not be further shared without your permission, or sold on, except in the case of anti-spam or anti-harrassment reporting and so on. Otherwise, genuine communication is treated as confidential.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and other details 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. They are not within our control to set, but are set by the platform WordPress that we use to run the site.

Other cookies may contain tracking information for third party organisations, e.g. Google link tracking.

If you wish to block cookies, we recommend changing your browser settings to do so.

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.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have contacted us, 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.

We can only delete information that comes directly to us. We cannot, for instance, delete your information on third parties such as Google.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We also have connected our site to a mail delivery service, Mailerlite. This is so we can send our subscribers regular emails, but this is opt in, and may be unsubscribed from at any time by using the links at the bottom of any of the emails. If you have received an email from this website and you think it is in error, please let us know.

For this or any other queries about this privacy policy please use our contact form (but note that the above policy still applies).
