What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Data that can identify you

You may give us data that can identify you personally when you leave a comment or subscribe to our email newsletter or other internet communications. This includes your name, email address, delivery or content preferences, IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

We collect this data to enable us to send you your requested information

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 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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.

We use cookies as part of the normal running of this site using the WordPress Content Management System. Where third-party service cookies are used, such as those from Google Analytics (see below), their expiry is governed by the policies of the service involved.

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.

Analytics

We collect no personally identifiable data using our chosen Analytics platform, Google Analytics, or via Google Search Console.

We do not run search advertising and remarketing/retargeting campaigns using services such as Google AdWords which require personally identifiable information.

Who we share your data with

We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to third parties for any purpose. Sometimes we use third parties to provide services we require to run this website and our business. These parties may have access to your information if they require it to provide services to us.

We would like to make it clear that if we choose to use a third-party service, they are required to meet the same standards of data security as we do, and that they never use your personal information for marketing purposes.

In certain circumstances, we may disclose your personally identifiable information:

  • when we believe the law requires us to do so, or authorities demand it in connection with a criminal investigation, civil case or administrative investigation or
  • when we believe we must disclose it, in order to protect you or others connected to us from injury, or  this website and business from harm

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.

Please email [email protected] or call us on +44 (0)1273 906607.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Newsletter subscription data is stored and processed by MailChimp. You can read their Privacy Policy at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

Your contact information

If you contact us via one of our contact forms, your data may be stored securely in Google’s cloud storage (we use Google G Suite to run our business) and in Apple iCloud (we use iOS devices). We may keep this information indefinitely.

Additional information

You may request details of personal information that we hold about you under the UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD), or EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR).
