What personal data do I collect and why I collect it

Contact form and comments

I don’t generally collect any personal data, but if you contact me and I obtain your personal details from your email, I may use them to respond to your email.

When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.



If you leave a comment on my 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.


Google Analytics

I may process data about your use of my website and services (“usage data”). The usage data may include your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths, as well as information about the timing, frequency and pattern of your service use. The source of the usage data is Google Analytics. This usage data may be processed for the purposes of analysing the use of the website and services. The legal basis for this processing is consent.


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 you had 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.


How long I retain your data

With your explicit permission, I may use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email with information, news, and offers on my services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.


What rights you have over your data

If you have left a comment or contacted me via this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

I will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes (other than storage on an email server).


Where I store your data

I will only store your personal data in the UK and/or the EU/EEA. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR and other applicable data protection legislation, including but not limited to the UK GDPR and UK Data Protection Act 2018.

My website analytics data processor, Google Analytics is situated in the United States. Google’s Privacy Policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en


Changes to this Privacy Policy

I may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. This may be necessary, for example, if the law changes, or if I change my business in a way that affects personal data protection.

Any changes will be immediately posted on this site, and you will be deemed to have accepted the terms of the Privacy Policy on your first use of my site following the alterations. I recommend that you check this page regularly to keep up to date. This Privacy Policy was last updated on 20 November 2022.
