Who are we?
What personal data do we collect and why do we collect it?
In order to give you the services you require, we may collect personal information about you from our website. We will normally only use your personal data to respond to your enquiries. We also use general data regarding your information (which does not identify you as an individual) for the purpose of administering and developing our website.
To be more specific:
When visitors leave comments on the website 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.
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.
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.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this website 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.
This website uses Google Analytics for analytical feedback to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. We have accepted the Google Ads Data Processing Terms and turned off data sharing possibilities. In addition, we have anonymized the IP address, meaning the full IP address is never written to disk. The data retention period is set to 26 months.
Links to other websites
Please check the individual third party websites privacy policies before you submit personal information to those websites.
Amazon Associates Program
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. In other words: as an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases.
What rights do you have over your data?
If you have left comments on this website, 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 do we send your data?
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Google – covering the Google Analytics data collected – complies with the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks.
