What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

Data obtained from stats collecting programmes are for inhouse use only. We never share this information.

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 for our mailing list, we record only your email address in order to send our Newsletter. Website administrators can also see that information.

What rights you have over your data

As mentioned above, we only collect email addreses if you sign up for our Newsletter. You can also request that we erase your email address by unsubscribing.

Where we send your data

Email addresses if given are only used to send our Newsletter.
