Privacy Policy

Last updated June 2016

I am committed to safeguarding the privacy of my website visitors; this policy sets out how I will treat your personal information. The legal stuff is below, but I will give a brief outline in plain English first and try to give you as much information as I can. Like most websites, collects and stores information on its visitors, by using cookies. The cookies are used when visitors leave comments, and will recognise the visitor if they make a subsequent comment at a later date, removing the need to further approve their comments. Cookies may also be used to track movements on the website, to record patterns of navigation, time spent, etc. If a visitor leaves a comment on they give their name, email address and (if they have given one) website URL, and these are also stored. I do not actively share, sell or transfer any information I hold on any visitor. However, some of your information is shared, for instance with the internet service provider hosting this website (because it rests on their servers). I take security of this site seriously, and ensure that relevant passwords for the site and server access are difficult and changed regularly. 

This site also uses Google Analytics, a tool from Google enabling website owners to monitor how many visitors view the website, and some information about them (which pages viewed, and for how long, which country and town they’re viewing from, their operating system, screen resolution, etc.) It does not give me their names so I cannot identify anyone. To achieve all this, Google Analytics generates its own cookies which it places on my visitors’ computers. Read Google’s own privacy policy for more information.

You can choose to block cookies, or delete them from your browser. I will not use any email addresses stored on this site, and I will not contact anyone directly using their email address unless expressly requested by that person. I am of course bound by law to disclose any information on this site if requested to by the police or the courts. 


(1) This privacy policy was made using an SEQ Legal privacy policy template.

(2) What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, website navigation;

(b) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us, or for making comments, including name, email address or website URL;

(c) any other information that you choose to send to us;

(3) Cookies

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. 

We may use both ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to keep track of your visit whilst you navigate the website. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit; session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser; persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users’ computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google’s privacy policy is available here.

Our service providers may also send you cookies.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking ‘Tools’, ‘Internet Options’, ‘Privacy’, and selecting ‘Block all cookies’ using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies may, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
