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.

Contact forms

If you use our contact form to contact us through our site we will collect your name & email address in order to respond to your message.
We will only use the information you provide us with to contact you about services you have asked to be informed about. We will only share your data with third parties when absolutely necessary, such as with our email platform as covered later in this policy.
We will never sell your data.


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.

We also use cookies on our site for third party applications including, but not limited to, Google Analytics, Yoast, our notification bar and Jetpack site stats, to allow us to improve our site by understanding how visitors to it are using it.
You can find full information about how we use cookies on our site on our Cookie Policy page.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google Analytics & Jetpack to track how visitors use our site & to improve the user experience on our site.
You can find the privacy policies of these analytics providers here: Google AnalyticsJetpack.
You can opt out of Google Analytics tracking by installing the Google Analytics Opt Out browser add-on and by visiting Quantcast and toggling to “opt out,” or you can enable “Do Not Track,” if available, in your browser.

Who we share your data with

We use Gmail for some emails and managing some contacts. This means we share your data, including email address and name with Google’s cloud services.  Read their privacy notice.

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.

We keep contact form entries for six months in order to reference previous queries from the same client or prospective client. We keep analytics records for fourteen months in order to monitor website usage over a fair time period.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, have used our contact form 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
