What personal data is collected and why


When visitors leave comments on the site, the data collected is that shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Contact forms

If you make contact via a contact form, the information required on the form is collected into order to respond to you. No more than that.

Email Subscription

If you subscribe to the emailing list, then the information you input will be retained in order to send you information relevant to the site. Unfortunately, skywriting is unavailable at this time.


If you leave a comment on the site you may opt-in to saving your name and email address in cookies. These are so you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. The cookies currently used by this site are for performance only.

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.


The site uses google analytics via the MonsterInsights plugin to measure things like traffic, how long each user stays on the site and which pages are most popular.


Who data is shared with

This site does not share data with any third-party marketers. However, MailChimp act as the site’s means of processing and storing information from email subscribers. MailChimp has its own privacy policy which can be viewed here.

How long your data is retained

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so follow up comments can be recognised and approved automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you’ve subscribed to the emailing list, your name and contact information will also be stored indefinitely unless you decide to unsubscribe.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments or subscribed to the emailing list, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that any personal data held about you is deleted. This does not include any data the site is obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
