What personal information do I collect from people that visit my blog and why?
Name or username, e-mail address, IP address and website URL, I also collect non identifiable data such as browser information in order me to see my website statistics. I use your data to run my site efficiently and to personalise user experience.

How do I protect your information?
I never ask for credit card numbers or payment details. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. All information you supply in encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. I implement a variety of security measures when a user enters or submits their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.

Blog comments
When visitors leave comments on my website I collect the data shown in the comment form, the visitors IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computers hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognise your browser and capture and remember certain information. For example, I use cookies to collect information on your browsing behaviour. Cookies are placed on the device you are viewing the site on and remember when that device accesses the site. These cookies do not collect personal information but monitor your behaviour whilst browsing. If you leave a comment on my website you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. This is so it'll save you time if you wish to comment again, however this is optional.

These cookies and the information they collect help improve the site for yourself and future visitors by monitoring traffic of users and success of particular content. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You can do this in your browsers settings.

Embedded content from other websites
Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include links to other articles, images or videos on my website. These websites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. Therefore I have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. However I seek to protect the integrity of this site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Third party plug ins
This site uses Google Analytics to collect information such as details of traffic and visitor behaviour patterns. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Website back up
I back up my website regularly including all comments and personal date attached.

Do I share data?
I do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless required to do so by law or for giveaways where I collaborate with a brand. An example of this is choosing a winner and me needing to pass on the winner information to the brand in order for you to claim your prize. By entering any giveaway or entering such information, you are agreeing to the terms, therefore if you are not happy with this then please do not enter giveaways. If a giveaway is collaborated with a brand I will clearly state this.

How long do I retain 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 my website (if any) the personal information you provide is on your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at all times (except usernames)

What rights do you have over your data?
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I'm obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Extra security information
This website is secured by SSL. This website is protected by an online firewall which blocks hacking attempts and security breaches. If there is a breach of security issue I am emailed immediately by my security provider. If there is a breach I will access the risk to your personal data and report any significant risks to the correct authorities if necessary.
