The web server for this site uses cookies to log each session anonymously. We use the Google Analytics service to log and report on web traffic to and from this domain. Google Analytics uses their own cookies to track visitor usage. These cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. Browsers can not and do not share first-party cookies across domains.

There are links on pages of this site either through hyperlinks in content or through interfaces to 3rd party services like Google+ and Twitter. These links are provided for your convenience only and are accessed at your own risk. We are not responsible in any way for the content of any third party website.

We use Apple Mail and 1and1.co.uk as mail clients and junk mail filters. Emails from our email accounts along with any attached files are intended only for the person or person to whom they are addressed. If you receive an email in error from me please let me know and delete the message(s) from your computer.

Comments

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 anonymized 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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.

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.

How we protect your data
