Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We have nothing set up that would intentionally collect personal data for profit or any other reasoning.  Plug-ins for web functionality usage along with site analytics may make use of ‘cookies’ as part of their processing but that is to be expected and indeed necessary. Should a newsletter be set up with this site, any data collected will be used for that purpose and not for re-sale/onward transmission to third parties without our knowledge and/or consent.


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. 


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

Should a contact form be added to this site, information will be used for that purpose i.e. the functionality of this site and not used for onward dissemination to third parties


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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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.

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.


At time of writing, site analytics is being performed by way of Google Analytics

Who we share your data with

No-one knowingly at time of writing other than the expected use of ‘cookies’ etc for functionality and links to other websites i.e. ‘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 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, same with Mail.

Your contact information

Any queries may be addressed to the site Administrator via email;

Additional information

Should banner Ads or affiliate links be added to the site content at some time in the future, the same information above will apply – i.e. some data may be collected by this site and/or third parties for the purposes of functionality, anti-spam, analytics, legal requirements etc.

How we protect your data

Security for this site is provided via WP, IONOS and plug-ins aimed at security of site.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Should their be a data breach, all reasonable measures will be taken to secure site deal with advising those affected as soon as is practicable.

What third parties we receive data from

At time of writing nothing is being provided. I would expect this may lead to site traffic analytics providing data but not at a personal level.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

None known at time of writing

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Not applicable to this site at this time.
