What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It


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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

Analytics-related Data

Who We Share Your Data With

Some of your data will be collected in anonymised form for the purposes of the metrics collected for Google Analytics. None of this data is personally identifiable.

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.

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.

Where We Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Otherwise, any personal data sent to us though our web-based facilities will not be shared, sold, or divulged to any other third party with the exclusion of law-enforcement agencies or for other purposes where we might be otherwise legally compelled to release it.

Your Contact Information

Requested contact details include your name and email and optionally your address and telephone number purely in order to facilitate sales, contracts and other negotiations as necessary. These details are kept completely private and under no circumstance will be shared with, or sold to, any third party.


Additional Information

How We Protect Your Data

Your business-related data is held on a secured server, and only so much is as necessary to facilitate our normal business practices. This server is secured behind a firewall. FAE data is further backed up to an external cloud server via a secure, encrypted link. All such data is as secure as modern encryption procedures currently allow for, and which are kept up to date as necessary.
