What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

Media

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

We may utilise embedded contact forms to collect the personal data of users who voluntarily supply this information in order to submit an enquiry. If you are submitting details on behalf of another person or organisation, you must have their permission to do so.

Cookies

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. These cookies will last for one year.

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.

We also use analytics cookies to see how visitors use the website, in order to help us make improvements to its design and features as described in the Analytics section below. None of these cookies give us access to personally identifiable data.

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.

Analytics

This website uses third-party analytics services (Google Analytics & Facebook Pixel) to monitor website performance and improve user experience. If you wish to opt out of analytics tracking cookies you can do so in your browser settings. For more details please see the Help information within your web browser or contact the developer of your web browser.

Who we share your data with

We will never sell your data to others. In some cases your personal data may be shared with third-party software providers for purposes such as marketing automation (for example, we may share your data with MailChimp if you choose to opt-in to email marketing communications). Any and all of these providers follow GDPR-compliant practices to protect your personal data.

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.

For users that opt-in to marketing communications or get in touch with us by other means, we will retain personal data indefinitely. You can request the deletion of this personal data by contacting us via the “Get in touch” page.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive a copy 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. To do this, you can contact us via the “Get in touch” page.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. In some cases your personal data may be shared with third-party software providers for purposes such as marketing automation (for example, we may share your data with MailChimp if you choose to opt-in to email marketing communications). Any and all of these providers follow GDPR-compliant practices to protect your personal data.
