In the course of your visits to our website, and depending on your level of interaction or contact (see below), we may obtain the following information about you: name, email address, geographic location, IP address, support queries, blog comments and social media handles (together ‘Personal Data’).
Our services are not directed to persons under 18 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from anyone under 18. If we become aware that a child under 18 has provided us with Personal Data, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you are the parent or guardian of a child and you believe they have provided us with Personal Data without your consent, then please contact us.
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.
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.
If you upload images to the website (for example, in blog posts or comments), 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.
If you fill in and send a message to us via the contact form on our Contact page, any information you enter will be stored temporarily to enable us to receive and action the message. By using the contact form, you are consenting to share the information you send to us. We keep contact form submissions for customer service purposes, but do not use the information submitted for marketing purposes.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. Other cookies may be created when you interact via social media, for example liking or sharing blog posts.
