What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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 recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you choose to contact us through the form on our contact page, the information you provide will be captured and transmitted to our inbox when you press the ‘submit’ button. This information may also be logged and stored on our server, along with your IP address.
Your contact form submission may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
