Privacy Policy

We take the privacy of your personal data seriously.

We will only use the information which you provide in support of the legitimate interests of keeping you informed on our project and to administer our blog service.

We will tell you what personal data we are collecting, why we are collecting it, what we will do with your personal data and how long it will be retained for. Typically, this will include the following:

  • Full name
  • Email address(es)

We will use this data to inform you about our activities via our blog posts.

We will only process your data in the UK and will not share your data with any third parties without informing you first.

Typically, we will only retain your contact details in order to keep you up to date on our products and services and to deliver any services you have requested from us.  Further details will be provided at the point of data collection.

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 anonymised 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.

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 visit our login page, 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.

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.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

Your data will be retained indefinitely whilst you remain registered with us. Should you wish for your data to be deleted (and therefore no longer be registered with us), please get in touch using our email address below.

We promise to be open, fair and transparent about how we use your personal data. If you have any questions about the use of your personal data, please get in touch with us as soon as possible at We will inform you every time we collect your personal data.

Should you wish to stop receiving information from us, contact an individual responsible for data protection or enact one of your individual rights (including, but not limited to, deletion, access and rectification) please get in touch using our email address below.

This notice does not extend to other sites or companies.
