Privacy Policy

Privacy is very important to me, and so I take your privacy seriously too. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t have any of your data at all. But sometimes I need to use your data, and this sets out exactly what data I’ll ask you for and how I’ll use it.

If you ever feel uncomfortable with the way I’m using your data, please tell me. I never want you to feel uncomfortable.


This website uses Google Analytics cookies to help me understand how the site is used and what I could do to improve it. These cookies do not collect any personal data about you, and I cannot use these cookies to identify you.


When leaving a comment on this website, you will be asked for

  • your name, which will be used to identify you within the discussion
  • your email address, which helps prevent spam as well as allowing you to use services like Gravatar to show a photo next to the comment
  • your website URL, which is optional.

This information will be used by the spam filter I have installed, Askimet, to help prevent my site from being flooded by spam. It will also be stored within my site’s database in order to keep your comment on display. I may respond to your comment by posting a reply; I will not use this information to contact you directly. If you would like this information to be deleted from my database and the comment deleted, please contact me.

Email communications

When you sign up to my newsletter, I ask you for:

    • your name, so I know what to call you
    • your email address, so I know where to send the email.

I use MailChimp to send out my newsletter, and your details are stored by MailChimp. You can change what kind of emails you receive from me by updating your profile; I will not send you any emails other than the ones you have told me you would like to receive.
You can unsubscribe from my newsletter at any time by clicking the Unsubscribe link in one of the emails I’ve sent you, or by updating your profile. If you would like me to remove your details from MailChimp entirely, please contact me.
