PRIVACY POLICY

Introduction and general terms

We are committed to safeguarding personal information.

Our website has hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the content or privacy practices of such third-party websites, and your use of such websites is at your own risk.

Information collected

When users participate in any of our services, activities, or online content, we may receive personal information. This may consist of information such as a user name, email address, postal address, telephone or mobile number, depending on the activity.

By submitting details, users enable us (and where applicable our contractors) to provide the services, activities, or online content selected.

We also use cookies and collect IP addresses, which uniquely identify devices on the internet.

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

For users who 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 (although they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, 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.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the commenter’s internet protocol address and browser user-agent string to help prevent spam.

An anonymised 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.

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

Data is stored with our service provider (Zen Internet) in the United Kingdom, and the site is built with tools and services provided by WordPress.

Media

If you upload images or other content to the website, you should avoid uploading anything with embedded location data included, such as EXIF GPS. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from content on the website.

Information usage

We use personal information for a number of purposes:

  • to provide services, activities, or online content and to deal with requests and enquiries

  • to contact users about submissions they make, including any content they provide

  • to provide users with information about our services, activities or online content

  • to personalise the way our content is presented to users

  • to use IP addresses to identify the location of users, to block disruptive users, and to establish the number of visits from different countries

  • to analyse and improve the services offered on our website

Contacting users

We may contact users:

  • in relation to any service, activity, or online content signed up for in order to ensure that we can deliver the services to the user

  • in relation to any correspondence we receive or any comment or complaint made about our products or services

  • in relation to any contribution submitted to us

Sharing information

We keep information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law, for example, to government bodies and law-enforcement agencies.

Offensive content

If users post or send offensive, inappropriate, or objectionable content, we may use personal information to block such behaviour.

Under 16

If users are aged 16 or under, they must get the permission of a parent/guardian before providing any personal information to us. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.

Information time span

We hold personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract users hold with us.

Where users contribute material, it will generally be kept for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose for which it was submitted.

User rights

Under the Data Protection Act, users have the right to request a copy of the personal information we hold and to have any inaccuracies corrected. We charge £100 for information requests and require users to prove their identity with four pieces of approved identification. We will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct, or delete personal information on our files.

How we protect your data

We make every effort to protect your data and to respect your rights. No data is ever knowingly shared with a third-party or agent, save for any data (such as comments or uploaded media) that you freely make available on the site when contributing to it.

Privacy-policy changes

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. If you do not agree to any changes, please do not continue to use our website to submit personal information to us. If material changes are made to the Privacy Policy, we will notify users by highlighting the changes on the front page of the website for a period of at least one week.
