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.

Contact forms

Should you contact us using the contact form on this website none of the data supplied by you will be stored on this websites database. Neither will it be passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent over Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS/SSL meaning that the email content is encrypted. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
