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 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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

in order for our website to be found on the internet, it is necessary for various cookies to be set. This includes tracking cookies and other embedded code in our web pages that interacts with social media sites and search engines. We’re sorry. We don’t like the intrusive nature of some of those sites either, but it is necessary. If people cannot find our site and buy things from us, we cannot do what we do. People cannot find us without us being listed on these services and including their tracking code. If you can demonstrate a legal and ethical way we can achieve the same reach WITHOUT being on social media sites, we’re all ears! You can generally turn off the more invasive features through your settings on those websites.

This website also uses advertising to provide revenue. Writing blogs and running this site takes a considerable portion of my time, and this is the only income I make from the Blogs.

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. That may include tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We have no control over this. We minimise the amount of embedded content to protect you as much as possible, but sometimes it is necessary to communicate what we want to communicate. Sorry.

Who we share your data with

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

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

If you order a product from us, your personal details will be shared with various business partners who provide services to help fulfil your order. This may include payment, production and shipping providers.

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

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 store your data

This site uses an external hosting service. It can be served from any data centre utilised by that service, or from multiple data centres simultaneously. Each of those data centres may contain some or all of the data stored by this site. Those data centres may be located anywhere in the world. In addition, we keep backup copies of this site and those backup copies may be stored anywhere in the world. This website also uses caching and content acceleration services, which may contain temporary copies of data you provide as part of providing that service.

We take data protection seriously. Security features and settings are enabled and are regularly monitored and updated.
