I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to my website and subscribers to my mailing list. Here you’ll find information on how I treat data that I collect from visitors to my website, or when someone subscribes to my mailing list.
Visitors to My Website
If I do want to collect personally identifiable information through my website, I will be upfront about this. I will make it clear when I collect personal information and will explain what I intend to do with it.
Mailing List Sign Up
As part of the registration process for my mailing list, I collect personal information. I use that information for various reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked me to tell you about; to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; to check my records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. I don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
I use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver my communications. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry-standard technologies to help me monitor and improve my communications. For more information, please see Mailchimp’s Privacy Notice and Terms.
If you ever want your details to be removed, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link which is at the end of any marketing email you receive from me, or by clicking here, or by contacting me via my contact form.
To ensure you intended to sign up to receive my marketing emails, I use what is called ‘a double opt-in’ process. This means that after you have submitted the subscription form on my website you will receive an email asking you to confirm you would like to join the list. If you do not click the subscribe button in the email and you will not be added to my mailing list.

How I Secure Your Data
I do my best to keep your Personal Data safe. I use safe protocols for communication and transferring data (such as HTTPS). I use anonymising and pseudonymising where suitable. I monitor my systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.
Even though I try my best I can not guarantee the security of information. However, I promise to notify suitable authorities of data breaches. I will also notify you if there is a threat to your rights or interests. I will do everything I reasonably can to prevent security breaches and to assist authorities should any breaches occur.
If you have a user account with me, note that you have to keep your username and password secret.
Children Under the Age of 18
I do not intend to collect or knowingly collect information from children. I do not target children with my services.
