Privacy Policy

My core beliefs regarding user privacy and data protection:

  • User privacy and data protection are human rights.
  • I have a duty of care to the people within my data.
  • Data is a liability, it should only be collected and processed when absolutely necessary
  • I loathe spam as much as you do!
  • I will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal information

Personal information that this website collects and why it is collected

This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:

Site visitation tracking

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. I use this data to determine the number of people using my site, to better understand how they find and use my web pages.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to me. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you. Google, however, do not grant me access to this. I consider Google to be a third party data processor so please refer to their robust privacy policy.

GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

Email links

Should you choose to contact me via the email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data. The data will be collated into an email and sent to me using TLS meaning that the email content is encrypted. The email content is then decrypted by my local computers and devices. Not all mail servers, however, are secured in such a way. Therefore, I would suggest that you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or sensitive information within an email.

How I store your personal information

As this website does not use a contact form, comments or account log-in no personal information will be stored within this website’s database.

About this website’s server

This website is hosted by LCN within a UK data centre.

All traffic (transferral of files) between this website and your browser is encrypted and delivered over HTTPS.

Changes to my privacy policy

This privacy policy may change from time to time in-line with legislation or industry developments. I will not explicitly inform clients or website users of these changes. Instead, I recommend that you check this page occasionally for any policy changes.
