Privacy Policy

Who I am

My website address is:

How I am GDPR compliant 

1. Awareness
I am the only person involved in my business so there is nobody else to make aware of the GDPR guidelines.

2. The information I hold:

• Email addresses of people who have emailed me and to whom I have replied – automatically saved in Gmail.
• My website ( and contact form are powered by WordPress. You can view their privacy policy here:
• I do not currently have a mailing list.
• I do not currently sell anything through my website.

I do not share this information with any third party.

3. Communicating privacy information
I am taking three steps:
1. I have put this document on my website.
2. I will add a link to my email signature.
3. I have added a link to my contact page.

4. Individuals’ rights
On request, I will delete data. If someone asks to see their data, I will take a screenshot of their entry/entries.

5. Subject access requests
I will aim to respond to all requests within 72 hours.

6. Lawful basis for processing data
If people have emailed me, they have given me their email address. I do not actively add it to a list but Gmail will automatically save it. I will not add it to any database or spreadsheet unless I am given permission.

7. Consent
If I start a mailing list or online shop in the future, I will ensure I have full consent to keep personal data on my records.

8. Children
I will not be processing any data in relation to children.

9. Data breaches
My computer is strongly password protected as well as my WordPress website and Gmail email accounts. 
If any of these external organisations are compromised, I will ensure I take the necessary steps to follow their advice immediately.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments on blog posts

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

Contact forms


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.


Who we share your data with

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, 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. 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.

Where we send your data

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