Who We Are

Our website address is:

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.

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 Form

We collect your name and email if you use the contact form so we may respond to your inquiry.

Mailing List / Newsletter Form

We use MailChimp to manage a mailing list. If you sign up to receive an occasional digital newsletter, we collect your email address. Your email is stored in our MailChimp account – please see MailChimp’s privacy policy for more information.


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.

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 gather the IP address of visitors for analytical purposes, to determine where our visitors come from and what topics you are interested in reading about.

Who We Share Your Data With

We do not share your data with any other 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 recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Users may not register on our website, so we do not store or gather profile details.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

If you 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. We use Disqus for spam prevention, read about their Privacy Policy and GDPR for more information.

Your Contact Information

Information collected on our Contact Form is stored indefinitely for reference. You may request deletion or a copy of the information stored at any time.
