What personal data we collect and why we collect it


We don’t currently have comments enabled on our site, so the following would only apply if we enabled them:

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 anonymized 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.

Contact forms

By filling in a contact form, you generate an email to us, using the information provided which of course includes your name and email address. We use that information to reply to your contact, and we would not add you to a mailing list or other automated service without your express permission.


If you leave a comment on our site (though comments are not currently enabled) you would have the choice to 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.

The following only applies to people who wish to submit content for publishing on our site, not for general visitors:

  • If you visit our login page, 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use a simple Analytics plugin, Statify, which does not process and store any personal information such as IP addresses. It counts site views, not visitors/

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your data.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment (should we decide to enable comments), 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, for content-editing purposes), 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.

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 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.

Subject access rights

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) grants you the right to access particular personal data that we hold about you. This is referred to as a subject access request. We will respond promptly (the GDPR requires us to reply within one month of this request).

Our response will include all personal identifiable information that we hold about you eg. name and address, as well as the purposes for processing this information and any persons or entities that we have shared this information with.

Right to rectification

You have the right to obtain from us the rectification of inaccurate personal data we hold about you.

Right to erasure

You have the right to obtain from us the erasure of personal data concerning you without delay.

How we protect your data

We do not collect user data on this website at this time.

All email correspondence sent via the Contact Form on this website, and all other client information sent to us electronically, are stored on password protected devices.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the first instance, this website is hosted securely to prevent any unlawful breaches.

In the event of a data breach, we will evaluate how it happened and establish the size of the breach, bringing in external expertise as required.

If the breach severity is deemed to be Medium-High, we will inform the relevant parties of the nature of the breach and what information is likely to have been obtained so that they can perform their own necessary security checks and inform the ICO to discuss what happened.
