What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

When you submit a contact form, I ask you to submit your name, email address, and phone number. These are optional and not required to submit the form. I keep contact form submissions for one year for customer service purposes, but I do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Statcounter is an online service which helps me to understand my visitors; for example, how visitors find my website, how long they spend on my site, which web pages they are most interested in etc. I use Statcounter because better understanding how visitors are interacting with my website helps me to improve the content, design and functionality of my site. This allows me to offer a better online experience to my visitors.
Statcounter uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on visitors and visitor activity on my website. This data includes:

  • Time and date of visit (this can help me to identify and plan for busy periods on my website)

  • Browser and Operating System (this can help me to make sure that my website functions correctly in the browsers/operating systems used to access my site)
  • Device Information e.g. device type and screen size (this can help me to make sure that my website functions correctly in the devices used to access my site)
  • Referring Data e.g. a search engine link (this can help me to understand which search engines are helping visitors to find my website)
