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


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.


Who we share your data with

Right now, we don’t actively share data with anyone. If this changes we will let you know, but it’s unlikely that we ever would; it’s just not what we do.

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.

Your contact information

You can contact us for pretty much any reason on or by ringing our UK number which is +44 (870) 2957994

Additional information

We are actually the good guys, but as with anything in life, don’t share anything with us that you don’t want to see plastered over the internet. Posts and comments are public and other data can always be hacked or stolen.

How we protect your data

We try to keep you data to a minimum, usually nothing at all. This limits what can be stolen or lost. On top of this we try to keep everything on this site up to date and behind some mean looking firewall in Azure.

What data breach procedures we have in place

It’s a pretty simple philosophy. If anyone reports any kind of data leakage, we will immediately remove public access to this site and engage a third party security company to analyse the extent and causes of the problem. Anyone involved will be notified as soon as possible and if necessary the UK Information Commissioner will be notified.

What third parties we receive data from

This is a WordPress site, it is also linked to Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies for identity purposes. Now, we are not intentionally collecting any data from you, but some of your public data from these sites may be visible to us as a result of using these services.

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

None. This really isn’t what we do. You must be thinking of one of the evil companies. 🙂

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

In the event of a data loss, we are governed by UK law and are required to notify the UK Information Commissioners Office as soon as possible.
