What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We may change our privacy policy depending on site changes and promo activity, which we will action by updating this page.


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 anonymized 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

We will only collect personal information about you when you knowingly give it to us. This may include information from our contact page (Name, email address, phone number and location) or entry into competitions and mailing lists. We will never share this information with third parties, unless called upon to do so by legal authorities. You will have the option to opt out of communication from us at any time.


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. You can always disable cookies through your browser.


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.

However, once you have used these links to leave our site we cannot be responsible for the protection or privacy of any information you provide when visiting such sites and no 3rd party sites are governed by this privacy statement. You should review the privacy statement of the websites in question.


Who we share your data with

We will never share your data with 3rd parties, unless asked by legal authorities.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
