What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

When you enter data into a contact form saying that you will be signed up for our newsletter the data is being sent to Mailchimp which is the system we use them to manage the newsletter. Their privacy policy can be found here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
