What personal data we collect and why we collect it

  • Website 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. Other data collected through the cookies include browsing (what pages were viewed) and linking (whether a person clicks to read another post or to an off-site link).
    Please note: You can choose to disable, or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies, in your browser settings. Please be aware however that this can affect how you are able to use and interact with our site. Deleting cookies doesn't mean you are opted out of any advertising indefinitely. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit this site a new cookie will be added.

  • Google Analytics: Google Analytics is used to collect some of the data described in Website Cookies. It collects information about the number of views our website has had in total, views each post gets, clicks to other posts, clicks to off-site links, and a rundown of the number of comments. This data is retained for 26 months and then deleted. Google Privacy Policy

  • Comments: When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form (Name, email, and website (optional)), 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. Gravatar Privacy Policy. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. When 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. Visitor comments are checked through the automated spam detection service, Jetpack.

  • Embedded content from other websites: Posts 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you 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.

Please note: This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
