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.
