What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.


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 visitors fill in the contact form the data they provide will be collected, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Your email will also be stored by the site admin so that a response can be given where necessary. None of this information will be used for marketing purposes or handed to any third party organisations.
