● Data is a liability, it should only be collected and processed when absolutely necessary.
● We loathe spam as much as you do!
● We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal information.
2.0 RELEVANT LEGISLATION
Along with our business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
● UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)
● EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
● EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)

3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use
this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they
find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser
and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also
records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but
Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data
processor (see section 6.0 below).
FYI our website uses the analytics.js implementation of GA.
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit
to pages within this website.
3.2 Our blog
Should you choose to add a comment to any posts that we have published on , the
name and email address you enter with your comment will be saved to this website’s
database, along with your computer’s IP address and the time and date that you submitted
the comment. This information is only used to identify you as a contributor to the comment
section of the respective blog post and is not passed on to any of the third party data
processors. Only your name will be shown on the public-facing website although if the
supplied email address is linked to a Gravatar account, your Gravatar photo will also be
Your comment and it’s associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to
either 1.) remove the comment or 2.) remove the blog post. Should you wish to have the
comment and it’s associated personal data deleted, please using the email address
that you commented with.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before posting a
comment on our blog.
NOTE: You should avoid entering personally identifiable information to the actual
comment field of any blog post comments that you submit on this website.
3.3 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact Us page or an
email link like this one , none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or
passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in Section 6.0 .
Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer
Protocol (SMTP) . Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL)
meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2 , 256-bit cryptography before
being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers
3.4 Email newsletter
If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be
forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. We consider
MailChimp to be a third party data processor (see Section 6.0 below). The email address
that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our
internal computer systems.
Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to
use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from
the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any
email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting
removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed
to the mailing list.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our
While your email address remains within the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic
(approximately three times a year) newsletter-style emails from us.
4.0 HOW WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
As detailed in Section 3.2 above, if you submit a comment to a blog post published on this
website some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This is
currently the only occasion where personal data will be stored on this website. This data is
currently stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system
that this website is build on (WordPress). In the near future we aim to change the storage
of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional
processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual.
Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many web application
developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a
high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as we are able to.
