Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Some personal data may be collected by default, such as geographical location, cookie preferences and other demographic data such as gender and interests. We collect this information solely to to help us understand how our website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are.
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.
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.
Cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our website and application for you in order to enhance your experience.
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.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
We also use different external services like Mailchimp, Google Webfonts, Google Analytics, Google Maps, and external Video providers. These providers may collect personal data like your IP address.
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.
Analytics records will be kept for a year.
What rights you have over your data
You can 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.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences, could be collected upon subscription to our newsletter and/or via the contact form; and technical data, such as information about cookies.
Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds.
Should you get in touch with us throughout a contact form, you must be aware that we are using the Contact Form 7 plugin, which collects personal data such as your name and your e-mail address. Contact form submissions are kept for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.
This website makes use of Google Analytics 4, integrated with WordPress throughout the MonsterInsights plug-in. Users can opt out of analytics tracking by submitting their preferences in our cookie form.
How we protect your data
We will never ask, nor collect sensitive data from our visitors. We strictly use general data to understand how we can improve users’ experience on the website. We protect users’ data by never disclosing this information to anyone outside of our organisation, excluding all the third-party services mentioned above.
