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.
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.

Before you submit the form, you will need to click the box that states “[INSERT CONSENT BOX TEXT HERE]”. Data submitted in our contact form will be stored on this website’s server, where only the website owner and other authorised administrators and employees can view the submitted data. This data will be used to respond to your enquiry.
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.
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.
To be able to see if you have accepted the use of analytical and advertising cookies, and / or to see which types of cookies that you have opted out on, this website will install a cookie on your device which lasts for a year. This cookie is used so that if you visit this website again, we can remember your cookie and privacy choices and opt-outs, so that we do not have to ask you what your preferences were again.
When you add a product or service to your basket, 3 cookies will be installed on your device to remember which items you have added to your basket. 2 of these cookies will expire once your browsing session has finished, and the other cookie will expire in a year. This cookie remembers what items you had in your basket when you last visited this website, so that you can continue with your shopping from where you left off. These cookies do not collect any personal data, and data about your session gathered from these cookies isn’t shared with anyone, apart from authorised developers and administrators of this website for the purposes of bug fixes. These cookies are essential for the functioning of the shop page.
If you have consented to the use of analytical cookies, this website will install 4 cookies called “_ga” (expires after 2 years), “_gat” (expires after 1 day), “_gid” (expires after 1 day) and “collect” (expires once the session has finished). These cookies analyse how you use this website and will send the data that it has collected to Google Analytics (which processes this data) so that we (the website owner) can see how you use this website. This data will be used to get an insight of how people use our website, and how we can improve it for future visitors. Additional cookies may also be installed for further analytical purposes, that may or may not relate to your browsing session.
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.
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.
When you make a donation, or buy one of the products or services that are being sold on this site, these payments will be processes by Stripe Payments Europe LTD (for the purposes of simplicity, we will refer to them as ‘Stripe’). In order to do this, Stripe will need access to your credit/debit card information in order to charge you for the goods and/or services that you have just purchased. We do not store any card details on our server, as all payments are handled by Stripe. This will only charge your card once for this donation / purchase, and for nothing else (apart from shipping charges to deliver the good to the delivery address, if required). No recurring charges will be made unless you have signed up for a service on this website which is ongoing and is billed monthly, weekly, yearly or otherwise by direct debit.
Where we send your data

If you have consented to the use of analytical cookies, we will send data about how you use this website, and your session details to Google so that we can analyse how you use the site, thus giving us more information on how we can improve this website in the future.
