We may also provide you with the opportunity to receive by email any newsletter we produce or information about products or services we think you may find useful. We ask for consent to do this by providing an opt-in checkbox. You may opt-out at any time by emailing

If you have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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 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: 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 Forms

We do not use information submitted via contact forms for marketing purposes, unless otherwise stated on the form.
We retain contact form data for one year after submission, or after you cease being a client of ours, for customer services purposes.

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


We use MonsterInsights for Google Analytics (or similar tools, as updated from time-to-time) to collect analytics data about our site use. This tool uses cookies to collect anonymous data, though it includes your IP address. Such data is transmitted to Google for statistical compilation.

Plugin: Smush
Note: Smush does not interact with end users on your website. The only input option Smush has is to a newsletter subscription for site admins only. If you would like to notify your users of this in your privacy policy, you can use the information below.
Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimise them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.
Smush uses the Stackpath Content Delivery Network (CDN). Stackpath may store web log information of site visitors, including IPs, UA, referrer, Location and ISP info of site visitors for 7 days. Files and images served by the CDN may be stored and served from countries other than your own. Stackpath’s privacy policy can be found here.
Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

2.      Marketing Emails

If you have opted-in, we may use the information we hold about you in order to provide you with information about our services which we feel may interest you.

You can opt out of receiving marketing communications at any time by emailing

3.      Sharing your information

We do not sell your information to any third party, but we may disclose your personal information to other third parties in exceptional circumstances, such as if legally obliged to do so or with your consent.

We do not share your personal information with any other party, other than those analytics and plugin data as described in this notice.

We do not use your personal data for automated decision making and/or profiling.

4.      Where we send your data

The information about you that we collect may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).  It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers, such as Google. We do not store any payment details.

We take your privacy seriously and we take every reasonable measure to protect and secure your personal data. We work hard to protect you and your information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction.

If you leave a comment, 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.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, as detailed in this notice.

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

We keep contact form entries and analytics records for a year, and customer purchase records for seven years.
