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.

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: 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.

Contact forms

Contact form submissions are strictly to be completed manually by the user. The information contained and submitted within the forms are saved on an encrypted server. The information contained will be saved indefinitely, until requested to destroy by the user whom submitted it. The information will not be shared outside of but can and will be used to contact the sender, should the need arise.

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 Google Analytics to give us information on how our site will be used demographically and may assist with site improvements. Your personal information will not be used in this process.

Who we share your data with

We do not share data with any other company or entity. We do use 3rd party services to provide parts of our website and to increase security. Your information will not be passed directly to these parties.

How long we retain your data

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

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.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We use site wide SSL encryption. Backups of data are stored safely on an external server, which has additional security measures in place by Google.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If data has been breached we will inform all effected parties at the earliest instance. Information about the breach will also be passed to relevant authorities which may also contain personal information. Under UK law, this information will not be exchanged outside of the investigation.

What third parties we receive data from

We receive analytical demographic information from Google. No Other information is received.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We don’t use any software nor have any processes where automated decisions are made. All decisions will be handled by a competent member of staff and their decision is final and will not be open to criticism unless a mistake is made. In this instance, a second member of staff will review the original decision to ensure no mistakes have been made.
