This policy outlines how any personal data you may choose to share is handled.
My mailing list is currently handled by MailChimpTM. This means the information you provide when you sign up is stored securely on their servers, not mine. But given their position as a market leading provider of mailing list services, this is a good thing; their entire reputation is based on proper handling of personal data, and specifically on compliance with international anti-spam legislation and best practice.
When you sign up to my mailing list, I will periodically send you news and special offers. Mail is never sent without your permission, and all messages I do send you will contain clear instructions explaining how to remove yourself from the list, no questions asked.
This website uses “cookies” to enable some site functionality. There is nothing sinister about these files – contrary to some claims they do not represent a threat to your privacy or security. Nevertheless, some people prefer to disable cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in their browsers; but if you do, please be aware that certain parts of this site may not function correctly.
This site also uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to help me understand how website visitors use the site, in order to improve it. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for me, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
Any other personal information which you submit via this site will be treated with a similar level of care.
Rest assured that I will never rent, sell or otherwise disclose your information to unauthorised third parties without your permission unless legally obliged to do so.
