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.

Social Share buttons (blog posts)
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.
Who we share your data with
We do not share our users’ data with any third-party providers.
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 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 before we receive them. We do not give your data to anyone else.
Your contact information
Access to information
You can request access to the personal information that we hold about you and, except in limited circumstances when we are not permitted to do so for legal reasons, we will provide this information to you within 30 days.
If you feel that any information that we hold about you is inaccurate then you are able to ask us to update your information. If you want us to delete your information then please do so in writing and we will endeavour to do so unless we are required to keep it for legal, professional or internal business purposes.
