Privacy

Privacy is valuable to us and we extend the same courtesy to visitors to our website.

We also prefer to address our approach to privacy in simplistic and common-sense terms as opposed to hitting you with a standard, stock GDPR notice.

The extent to which data is retained will differ depending on your membership status and so below there are some General implications that apply to anybody visiting the website. Following that there are more specific notes depending on your membership status.

General

These privacy implications apply to all users, irrespective of membership status

Basics
  • Any information we retain will only be retained and used for the specific purpose it was supplied for.
  • For example, if you submit details and express an interest in further information about a specific product... that information will then only be used to supply the information about that specific product.
  • Your data will never be sold or distributed to any 3rd parties.
  • You can have all data we store removed at any time by simple closing your account..
  • If you wish to view the data we have stored about you, simple let us know via the contact form and I'll get back to you as soon as I can - I won't charge anything for this as it really should be your right.
  • You will not be added to any mailing lists or associated models unless you explicitly request to be added.
  • I do log all page visits but this is solely visitor numbers, I do not record anything that could identify you or track your individual behaviour on the site.
Cookies
  • On first visiting the site we will check if you have already acknowledged the cookie notice.
  • When you accept this, a cookie will be placed on your machine that allows the server to determine whether it needs to display the message again.
  • No record is kept of this exchange other than on your device.
  • We do not record it, nor are we able to directly access this information.
  • You can delete this cookie at any time although on next visiting the site, because it's no longer there, you will be presented with the privacy notice again.
  • If you remain a non-member, this is the only interaction with cookies you will ever have on this site.
Contact Form
  • Use of the contact form will record whatever details you enter. Specifically, your name and your email address.
  • These details are only recorded for the purpose of responding to your request.
  • The details will only be visible in the email I receive.
  • No other storage is involved.
Products & Services
  • Payments for products and services are completed via Paypal and the implications of that are covered in the 3rd parties section below.
  • This is done deliberately so as to ensure that at no time do we ever have access to or storage of your payment details.
  • I will be provided with your name and your email address by Paypal so as I can either send you the product or establish contact for your service membership.
  • For some services, group emails are sent. Your email address will not be visible to other recipients.
  • The only record that I ever keep of this transaction is simple that it happened so I can identify you as a bona-fide customer.
