What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site I 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

Cookies

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.

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.

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.

Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics and

Who I share your data with

Other than the third parties mentioned on this page I won’t share anything with anyone else.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where I send your data

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

Additional information

How I protect your data

This site is hosted on a dedicated server inside a surely set up virtual private cloud. Nothing is 100% secure but I do my best to be careful with these things. I’m not going to tell you exactly how I do that because that would mean giving information to ‘bad prats’ who might want to circumvent those measures. This is called ‘security through obscurity’.

What data breach procedures I have in place

As I only store basic things like comments (and to be honest I’m not really expecting to get many of those) and regular things like IP addresses I don’t consider there to be any major risk to your data. Even in the unlikely event that someone gained access to the site. If, at any point, I become aware of a data breach I’ll take the site offline, fix it and then post an update to say exactly what happened.
