Updates to this policy

This policy may be changed periodically to reflect changes to the website, infrastructure, or legislation. You are advised to check this policy each time you visit the website. This policy is always accessible from the “privacy policy” hyperlink at the bottom of each page.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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

We collect the data you enter if you fill in our contact form. This is stored for a maximum of one year before erasure, but may persist for up to three further months in backups.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.


We use Google Analytics to track details of visits to our website.

Who we share your data with

We will only pass your contact details on to others if we have discussed this with you first and obtained your explicit permission – for example, if we believe that they may be better placed to provide the service(s) you are looking for.

We will pass invoices (which may contain your personal data) to our accountants and auditors.

We will never sell your data to third parties.

We will not disclose personal data under other circumstances, except where we are compelled to do so by law.

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 who register on our website (if we offer this service), we also store the personal information provided in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception that 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. You may email us or write to our registered office to request this.

Where we send your data

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

Our site is hosted in the UK.

Online backups are also stored in the UK. Offline backups are encrypted and password protected and are stored in a secure location in the UK. We also use the Dropbox Plus service to store additional encrypted and password protected copies of backups. The Dropbox servers are in the USA, which is a compliant country for data protection purposes.
