What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

When visitors use one of our contact forms, their name, email address, comments, and any other fields present and required on the form are sent to us via email, and a copy of the message is retained within the website indefinitely.

Who we share your data with


We use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors of this site:

  • Found the site in the first place (i.e. a referring link, or a search term)
  • What pages are visited and for how long
  • What device and web browser is used
  • Where the visitor is located, via their IP address

This data is collected for the purpose of understanding how visitors find and use this website and which pages are popular, and to determine how to improve the website over time. The data collected is never shared, sold, or disclosed and cannot be used to identify you personally by name.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment on the Contact Form, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can reference the contact form later on within the website.

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.

What rights you have over your data

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.
