Privacy Policy

This policy relates only to the website

What personal data is collected and why


When visitors leave comments on the site any personal data which you put into the comments form is collected. There is no requirement for you to put any personal data into the comments form – you may simply put any text as a name, and anything that looks like a valid e-mail address – it is not used in any way.

In addition, your IP address and browser user agent string are logged by the web server.

Please do not put anything in the comments that you do not wish to be made public. If you want to comment but do not want the comment to be published please simply say so in the comment – comments are not automatically published and may not be made public in any case.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in a cookie. These are simply there 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.

Links to other websites

Posts may contain links to other websites over which we have no control or responsibility. It is up to you to check the privacy notices of those websites and also up to you if you visit them or not.


Web analytics (for example Google Analytics) are not used on this website.

Who we share your data with

Website access data may be shared with law enforcement agencies on receipt of a valid warrant but otherwise nothing is sent to anyone.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. therefore, any personal data you put in a comment will be retained.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left any personal data in comments you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also 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.

In plain language

Simply put, this is a blog and is mostly for me to go about showing what I have been up to in the hope that it may be of interest to someone. There is no requirement to comment on any of the posts and if you do, there is no requirement for you to identify yourself in any way. IP addresses are logged by the web server and only I have access to these – I do nothing with them and they get deleted after 7 days. The website is WordPress and there may be a time that a new version sets a cookie that I am unaware of and I will update this notice when I find out. I do not use any oddball plugins and nothing here should be at all privacy invasive, but it’s WordPress at the end of the day.
