Additional information:

Blog comments:

WordPress allows you to write and publish comments on this website. If you provide your email address you may receive follow up comments by email. Users are responsible for the content of their own comments and can remove them at any time either by deleting them or contacting the site owner.

Mailing list hosted by MailChimp:

Emails including newsletters, marketing and new blog posts are sent through MailChimp. When you join the mailing list you supply your email address, first name and last name (optional). Your data is held by MailChimp and you can unsubscribe at any time. This can be done using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of every mailing or by contacting the Data Controller. Mailings contain tracking data which allows me to see if the newsletter has been opened and if links have been clicked, this is to help me to improve the content of future mailings. For further information please visit MailChimp.

Analytics:

I monitor and analyse website traffic to identify User behaviour and improve my services. This is done via WordPress and Google Analytics.

WordPress:

This website is created using WordPress which uses Personal Data (Cookies and Usage Data) to track and examine the use of this website and to prepare reports on its activities. For further information please visit WordPress.

Google Analytics:

Google Analytics is a website analysis service which uses the Personal Data (Cookies and Usage Data) to track and examine the use of this website, to prepare reports on its activities and to share them with other Google services.

How long the Personal Data is held:

The Personal Data is kept for the time necessary to provide the service requested by the User, for legal/business reasons or for reasons outlined in this Privacy Policy.

Controlling your Personal Information / Rights of Users:

Website Users have the right to know if their Personal Data is being stored and can consult the Data Controller at any time. This will enable the User to confirm the accuracy of the Personal Data and/or to ask for the Personal Data to be accessed, updated, amended or deleted, provided it is not required to be retained for valid legal and/or business purposes.

A request may be declined if the site owner cannot adequately verify the identity of the User or is at risk of endangering the privacy of others. To request access, an update, a correction or the removal of your personal information, please contact the Data Controller.

This website does not support “Do Not Track” requests, to determine whether any of the third-party services honour the “Do Not Track” requests, please see their privacy policies.

Legal action:

I will not disclose your Personal Data without your consent and will never sell, rent or share your Personal Data. I will only share your Personal Data if required by law or legal process or for the investigation of illegal or criminal activities, or the exercise of legal rights in defence against any legal claims, or from improper use of this website, social media sites or the related services. The User also declares to be aware that the Data Controller may be required to reveal Personal Data upon request of the public authorities.

Updates to the Privacy Policy:

The Data Controller reserves the right to make changes to the Privacy Policy at any time. It is therefore recommended to check this page often and refer to the date of the last modification at the bottom. Your continued use of the website and social media sites after any change in this Privacy Policy will mean you accept such change. If a User objects to any of the changes to the Policy, the User must cease using the website and social media sites and can request that their Personal Data is removed.
