What personal data is collected and why?

Comments

Media

You can’t upload your own media to this site. If you’ve spotted yourself in a picture on this site and would like it removed please get in touch and it will be removed.

Contact forms & E-mail

When you submit information via any contact form on this site, the information you type in to that contact form will be sent to me. So for example, if you type your name in the ‘Name’ box, your name will be sent to me. Same applies for all the other boxes on the form. If you type personal information in a box and click ‘submit’ then that personal information will be sent to me. If you would rather I didn’t receive personal information about you then a) don’t type it in to the box and b) don’t click submit. Same applies for e-mails.

Cookies

Cookies are small files stored on your computer to make web sites work. Pretty much all web sites make use of them. On this site cookies are only used for statistical and analytical purposes. No personal information, such as your name, address, fingerprints etc., are stored in these cookies. To work out where my visitors are coming from, anonomised IP addresses are used by Google Analytics. These can’t be traced back to individual computers.

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 exactly the same way as if you’d 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. If you don’t want that to happen then please cease using this web site and delete your cookies.

How long is your data retained?

Any information you send me may be retained indefinitely so that it can be referred to in the future. Even if it’s deleted, it’s probably held on a backup somewhere.

What rights you have over your data

You can request to have a copy of information I hold about you. You can also request for this information to be deleted. This does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. As I don’t have a team of people dedicated to handling GDPR requests I can’t give any indications of timescales for the above.

Contact information

You can get in touch via the Contact form on this web site. Contact forms are discussed above. If you send a message asking for no personal information to be stored then you will have to send some identifying personal information such as your name and e-mail Address so I know who you are. That information will be stored until I get a chance to read it and sort your request.
