This page informs you of my policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information I receive from users of the Site. I use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using this Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
What personal data is collected and why:
While using this Site, I may ask you to provide me with certain personal identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personal identifiable information will only include your name and email address (to leave a comment or sign up for my newsletter) and your website address (this is optional).
When visitors leave comments on the site the data shown in the comments form is collected, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you have left comments on 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 am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Like many site operators, I collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit this Site (“Log Data”).
This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of my Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, I use Google Analytics to collect, monitor and analyse this.
If you have signed up for my newsletter, I will use your email to contact you with occasional newsletters. You will not be signed up for my newsletter without your explicit permission and you can opt out at any time by clicking ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of my emails.
If you have signed up to receive my blog posts by email then you will receive an email every time I publish a blog post. Usually a maximum of a couple of times a month. You will not be signed up for my blog post emails without your explicit permission and you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of the blog post email.
Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive, usually for a maximum period of time.
Like many sites, I use ‘cookies’ to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of this Site.
If you leave a comment on the 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 website uses third parties such as:
Google Analytics & Fonts – I use this for added flexibility and to track the traffic to this site and the readers. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
Gravatar (see above)
I do not currently run advertisements of any kind or have any affiliate links on my site.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may occasionally 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.
The security of your Personal Information is important to me, but please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Any breaches of data will be informed within 48 hours via either email or a notice on this website.
