Storage and Retention of Data

We ensure that your information is collected and stored securely on our systems, which are primarily located in the UK and European Economic Area (EEA). In cases where we utilize third-party service providers for data storage, we have established appropriate agreements to safeguard your personal data.
The retention of personal data is contingent upon the specific purposes for which it is collected. The duration for which we retain your data may vary depending on the services or products we provide. We only retain your data for a reasonable period that aligns with the purpose of its usage. Once that purpose has been fulfilled, we will either securely delete the data or anonymize it to ensure that it no longer identifies you. However, if there are legal, tax, or accounting obligations that require us to retain the data for a longer duration, we will comply with those requirements.

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.

Data Security

At our core, we prioritize the security of the personal data we possess. Adhering to the principles of the GDPR, we implement suitable technical and organizational measures to prevent unauthorized access to your information and maintain its security. When transferring personal data to third parties, we ensure that they have established adequate security measures in place. To ascertain the safety of your data, we request third parties to complete Data Security Questionnaires, allowing us to verify their suitability as custodians of your 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 your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

If visitors wish to opt out of the Dart cookie, they can do so by referring to the privacy policy of the Google ad and content network.
