What personal data we collect and why we  collect it

Comments on the Contact Form

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.  We review comments and may include on our website or in our eBooks.  We reserve the right to exclude spam, phishing, advertising or inappropriate comments.

We do not share your data

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and associated information you provide and its metadata are retained indefinitely with the exception of spam, phishing, advertising or inappropriate comments which will be deleted.  This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you leave a comment, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us with the exception of spam, phishing, advertising or inappropriate comments which will be deleted.  You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you.  This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Automated Spam Detection Service

Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Your data is secured onsite in our database and is protected and secured by the latest up-to-date Internet Security systems.

Enjoy reading this treasure box filled with entertaining and inspiring stories on living life, loving and having fun times. Let us know what makes you “tick” and inspires and encourages you. We trust these true stories make you laugh and also touch your heart and Graham’s “a moment in time” photos give you an inside view of how he sees life through his “lens” and captures the beauty and magic around us every day which makes life worth living.
