What personal data the website collects and why…


When visitors leave comments on the site it collects 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 & Booking forms

Any data you submit via the contact or booking form, is collected and held on the website. This information is additionally transmitted by email for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry.


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, the website 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.

When you log in, the website will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave 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.


The website records your point of entry (landing page), how you navigate through it, and which content you click on or download. This type of tracking does not include personally identifiable or sensitive information about you. It does include your country, the source link you clicked on (social media or search engine), and lastly the type of device/browser used while visiting the website. It simply records that ‘some one’ was here, using a laptop/tablet/smart phone and what you did to interact with the website. This helps me improve the website’s functionality.

Who I share your data with

I do not share any personally identifiable information with any 3rd parties. The website is encrypted with the latest SSL technology to keep your data safe.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the website administrator can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

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.
