Who we are
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically collected information as “Device Information.”
You also have the choice to provide us with your personal data such as Name and Email Address. You choose to do so when you enter your details into any of our opt-in and/or subscription forms on this site.
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.
We keep contact form submissions indefinitely for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.
We collect Device Information using “Cookies” – these are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
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.
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
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.
Additionally, the site may contain links to third-party websites not owned or controlled by the site. Therefore, the site and its owner assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites and will not be held liable for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through such websites

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we 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 signed up to our Newsletter, or have left 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.
