When visitors leave comments on this website 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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included otherwise visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you contact us thorough our Contact Us button then we will capture your email address and any information that you include in the form. This would be the same information as if you had emailed us directly. Unless the message contains information that we are required to keep for legal or regulatory purposes then your details are deleted once the matter has been dealt with. No information is retained for marketing purposes.
If you leave a comment on our website 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 unless deleted by you before they expire.
If you have an account and you log in to this website, 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.

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:
Your details are not shared, and never will be shared, with any third party however, visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
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.
