What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

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.


We use the third-party service of Google Analytics (GA). This service is designed to track your journey through our website anonymously. We do not store personal information in GA .

We may use an online interface to view the collected data and, where appropriate, will produce reports to support our service.

Google Analytics will store cookies on your machine in order to facilitate this process.

We will not share your personal data with third parties.

When you place an order on our website, we will collect the relevant information from you in order to fulfil the order. This information is retained on the website and order data will be transferred into our relevant systems. If you opt into receiving communications from us, then a sub-set of your data will be submitted to our third-party Communications tool.

Please email us if you wish to see an overview of the information we have stored on the website.

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.

The information submitted by an individual; when they place an order on the website or sign up to receive communications will be retained for as long as the user remains a registered customer or we cease trading, which ever comes first. From time to time, we may audit registered customers to determine if they are still active. If no purchases have been made within the last 7 years, we will attempt to contact you before deactivating the account and removing personally identifiable data related to the account.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, have left comments, or made a purchase, 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.

Your data and privacy rights are important to us. To find out more information about privacy and your rights, the Information Commissioner’s Office can provide you with the details you need.
