Privacy Policy

This page will give you a little more information about the data that you provide when you are using .

Personal data
Personal data is collected by this site to improve the user experience. This includes:

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.

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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.

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.

From time to time I may use anonymous data to further understand my audience and better tailor my site to you all. This may include information on approximate location (for example, country), time of use, or where you clicked through from (for example a search engine or social media page). This information may be shared in its broad form with third parties. For example, X number of readers are based in the UK.

Who I share your data with
As above, broad data may be shared with third parties to tailor the products, services or experiences written about on this site. Please note that I will never pass your email address, exact location or any other contact information on to any third party organisations without your express permission.

How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

For users that subscribe to my blog, I also store the personal information that you provide in order to send out an email alert for new posts. You can unsubscribe from this at any point either on the email sent or by contacting me directly.

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.

And finally...
Your privacy is very important to me. This policy and my site will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that any data held is protected.

Please note, I am always happy to answer any questions on any of the above information. You may contact me directly via email on: [email protected]
