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.
We use a contact form on our website where visitors can contact us with any questions or queries they may have. We have listed some points below on how this information is used:
- What types of personal data are collected through the contact form?
Our contact form requires a name and valid email address so that we can answer any questions or queries we receive.
- For what purposes those data necessary?
We need a valid email address in order to reply to any questions or queries.
- Who can access the data?
We have two administrators on our website and only they have access to the data submitted.
- Are the data stored in some way? If so, where and for how long are they stored?
The data is stored on our secure server and our website uses HTTPS so all data being sent via the contact form is encrypted. We only store the data until the visitors query has successfully been answered or resolved. We then delete all corresponding data and messages.
- Are the data shared with third-party entities? If so, who are they?
No, the data is never shared with any 3rd parties.
- In which country will the data be processed?
The data is processed in the UK.
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.
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 do not log any visitor our data but we do use a 3rd party plugin that provides us minimal analytical data. The plugin is provided by Clicky and their privacy information can be found here.
From the Clicky privacy page:
“We value the privacy of visitors to web sites monitored by our service. By default, we do not log any personal data, other than a tracking cookie containing a randomly generated Unique ID (“UID”); IP addresses are anonymized, “Do Not Track” headers and global opt out cookies are honored, and custom data tracking is disabled”
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.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
