What personal data we collect and why we collect it
This policy tells you what to expect when we collect your personal information.
Please only use our service if you are completely happy with this policy.
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 fill out a contact form, this will trigger an email to the business. These emails are stored in the primary email box of the business owner, until such time it is decided there is no further benefit to keeping it.
Cookies are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the website owner or others. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser only until your browser is closed. They allow websites to link your actions during a browser session. Persistent cookies stay in the cookie file of your browser for longer (how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). For further information on cookies, including how to use your browser to block them and how to delete cookies already stored on your device, visit: www.allaboutcookies.org.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, e-mail 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.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
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.
What’s our legal basis for collecting the information?
We may use it the data we collect for other purposes (such as email marketing) if you consent. In the case of other data such as automated information collected when you browse our site, we use this to manage and improve our service (including security and fraud prevention) in accordance with our “legitimate interests”.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
What do we do with personal information?
Send you marketing messages, if you have given permission. You can withdraw permission at any time as explained on our service or by emailing us at the above email address.
Use it to recognise you when you visit or return to our service to track anonymised traffic and usage patterns, prevent or detect fraud or abuses and help us improve our service.
How long do we keep it?
We will generally keep your information for up to six years after your account is closed – for tax reasons and/or to help deal with any disputes. That timeframe may vary if we are legally required to keep information for a particular period. We will keep your information which we use for marketing until you tell us to stop sending you marketing messages.
Who we share your data with?
To other people who supply us with a service, e.g. e-commerce platform providers, website hosts and businesses which help us send communications, gather feedback or monitor our website.
To other users of our service, if you enter personal information into a public profile or otherwise include it in a review or other public action on our service.
To the police or other relevant authorities or to complainants, if we think the personal information breaches our terms and conditions, or it is necessary to protect us or others, or that a criminal offence may have been committed, or where required by law or where requested by the police or other appropriate authorities.

What rights you have over your data
If you 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.
