Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect the minimum amount of data possible. Out contact forms are linked to email accounts, not to our servers (see Contact forms below). We have several apps/plugins that generate cookies, see Cookies below for further information). We only save emails on our WordPress secure database when a person registers to our site, becomes a subscriber and asks to be added to our mailing list for new blog posts and newsletters. We never, not ever, use any information for anything other than what it was intended and individuals have the right to access their data, delete their data, and forward a complaint at any time to our data controller, (see Data Controller Contact below).
The most information we take via contact form is Name and email, we do not ask for phone numbers, addresses or date of birth.

If you only disable third party cookies, you will not be prevented from making purchases on our sites. If you disable all cookies, you will be unable to complete a purchase on our sites.
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.
Our contact forms only collect the data you submit such as name, subject matter and message. This data is not held on our server or database, the emails are stored with our relevant email accounts such as G-Suite, Gmail or Hotmail. These emails and email addresses are never used for anything other than direct contact with the sender. After a maximum period of 6 months (when the messages between us have finished) we delete all messages and email addresses from our email account. We never use your email for marketing purposes or pass them to any third parties as we take you privacy seriously.
