Who we share your data with
We don’t share your data with anyone else, unless you ask us to.
How long we retain your data
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.
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.

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.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We only retain your personal data for as long as necessary for fulfilling the purposes we collected it for. This includes the purposes of our marketing activities and satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
We occasionally update our data retention practices. Please contact us if you require further details. We are required to keep basic information about our customers and clients (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) for six years after the end of the tax year after which they cease being customers or clients, for tax purposes.
We also anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for market research or statistical purposes. Anonymised data may be used indefinitely without further notice
We also process your financial data, such as credit card and other payment details, for the purpose of processing your payments. However, we do not retain your credit card details once the payment has been accepted.
