What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Our Approach to the GDPR

We follow the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), under which the law requires us to process data fairly; for specified purposes; limited to what is necessary and for as long as necessary; and to ensure data is accurate and secure.

We consider good data protection to be crucial in building positive working relationships, so we never collect data or process any data in a manner which we think would surprise people, and hope to exceed expectations in transparency about our data processing.

We always carefully consider our legal bases for processing under the GDPR for every single item of data we collect, and we make every effort to only process data when we absolutely must to comply with our legal and contractual obligations, and when we are satisfied that it is necessary for our business to function.

We take measures to keep data secure and protect against unauthorised access, and we take particular care before collecting and holding any data that could adversely affect your rights and freedoms or cause you loss or other damage.


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: 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 forms

We process names and contact details from emails, together with any other Personal Data provided, for the purposes of our legitimate interest of entering into business correspondence with clients, service users and other individuals who we may contact in our day-to-day operations, and we maintain adequate records of our correspondence with anyone who we may communicate.

Those who email us should refrain from sharing the personal details of others without that person’s permission, and any such information shall be processed under Article 14.5 of the GDPR, absolving our obligation to contact every Data Subject mentioned to us due to the disproportionate effort required.


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 visit our login page, 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

We only transfer Personal Data we control to third party Processors for specified purposes, under strict instructions and with the assurance that appropriate measures are in place to protect your information. Our third party processors include:

  • Outsourced IT services who have access to our systems for backup and restore purposes.
  • Services for the operation of our website and email.

We may share your personal information with other entities in our group.

We may also have to share any of the personal information that we hold in the context of a possible sale or restructuring of the business, or when we are required to by a regulator or to comply with the law.

We do not transfer any of the personal information of our web users outside the EU.

Our email servers are cloud hosted in the EU and the US under appropriate GDPR-compliant safeguards.

We will never share the personal data of our contacts with any marketing organisation or any other third party not outlined above. If this ever changes we will seek the express consent of the Data Subjects concerned.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or 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.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

We ensure all our our third-party service providers take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
