Privacy Policy

Contact via the Contact Page

When you contact me via the contact form you are asked for your email address and your name. I use this information only to reply to your questions. I will never share your information with anyone else or use it for any other purpose.


When you sign up for my newsletter you are asked for your email address. I use this information to send you the newsletter. I will never share your email address with anyone else or use this information for any other purpose. You can remove your email address from my mailing list at any time by using the unsubscribe link which you will find at the bottom of every newsletter.


When you leave a comment on this site you are asked for your name and email address: this makes it easier for me to reduce the number of spam comments, and for you to comment on future posts. Your email address is not visible to other users and I do not use it for any other purpose, and I will not share it with anyone else.

Cookie Policy

Like most websites, this website does use some cookies when you browse the site. These are used to ensure the proper running of this website, and also to help me ensure your experience on the site is the best it can be. None of the information this site gathers via cookies identifies you as an individual – it is all entirely anonymous.

If you leave a comment on a blog post or page on this site, then a cookie may be stored to ‘remember’ your email address for the next time you post (should you choose the “remember me” option).

If you take part in a poll on this site, a cookie may be stored to ‘remember’ your IP address so that you can only vote once on each poll.

To understand how people use this site, I use Google Analytics. Most websites use some sort of analytics program like this. The data it collects helps me see things like how many people visit the site, which country they are from, how many pages they visited, which pages visitors find the most useful, and how fast the site loaded. All data collected is completely anonymous, it does not identify you as an individual in any way.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Changes to this privacy policy

I may update this privacy policy from time to time in line with website changes that might affect the personal information I gather about you. This policy is effective from September 2012
