Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can update, manage, export, and delete your information.

Data on this site is handled according to UK/EU data protection laws.

Who we are

Our website address is:


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.

Contact form

When a visitor uses the contact form on the site we collect the data shown in the contact form only. Email addresses are retained only for the purpose of responding to the sender. Emails will be retained until a response is no longer required, up to a maximum of one calendar year.

We do not keep any information submitted through the contact form for marketing purposes, and do not pass data submitted through the contact form to any 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.


This site uses basic analytics to monitor the popularity of our articles. Visitors IP addresses are stored to ensure one site access per IP over a 24 hour period is counted.

Information collected is aggregated, and not connected to the visitor IP address.

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.

Who we share your data with

None of the data we collect is shared with any third-parties.

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. Website administrators can see and edit this information; site viewers are unable to see the email address or IP address.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments on this site, 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.

To do this, use the contact form on provided here: It is suggested to use the email subject line ‘DATA REQUEST’ to ensure your request is dealt with promptly.

All requests will be dealt with in line with EU GDPR regulations.
