Who I am
I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to this site. In particular, I want you to know that I am not in the business of selling, renting, or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.
I take your privacy seriously and take measures to provide all visitors and users of this website with a safe and secure environment.
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
When someone visits this website, there may be an ability to submit comments on particular articles or pages. When comments are submitted you are entitled to use aliases or information that completely hides your identity. When a comment is submitted, relevant details (name, email, website) that you provide are stored. These details are stored so that I can display your comments back to you and to anyone viewing the comments sections on the site. I do not verify the information entered nor do I require verification. Email addresses are not publicly displayed.
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
This website may set and access cookies on your computer. Cookies are used to provide my system with the basic information to provide the services you are requesting. Cookies can be cleared at any time from your Internet browser settings.
When someone visits this website I use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard Internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. I do this to track things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and interactions with the site. This information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to this website.
As part of the registration process for my newsletter, I collect personal information. I use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked me to tell you about; to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; to check my records are correct and to check every now and then that you are happy and satisfied. I do not rent or trade email lists with other organizations, businesses or individuals.
I use a third-party provider, MailPoet, to deliver my newsletters. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve my newsletter. For more information please see MailPoet’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my emails.
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.
Access to Your Personal Information
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
