What personal data we collect and why we collect it


We conduct an anonymous survey online. You are not asked to provide details that could identify you in any way. If you are interested to hear from us you have to sign up to our mailing list separately.

Contact forms

We ask for your full name and e-mail address in order to join our mailing list to send you information about our latest news and offers. You have to actively subscribe (by clicking on the subscribe button) for you to receive this information.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We use Mailchimp to coordinate our messages, so your name and email address may be saved on their server.

How long we retain your data

If you sign up to our mailing list we will retain your name and e-mail address indefinitely unless you unsubscribe from the list, which you can do at any time. Each e-mail from us provides an ‘unsubscribe’ link.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Also you will not be able to ask for the data you have provided taking part in the survey as you would have not stated your name, e-mail address or any other details that could identify you and we DO NOT wish for you to provide these details. We are clearly asking you to contact us via e-mail if you have any questions.

Where we send your data

If you sign up to our mailing list, the data will be sent to MailChimp for integration.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Access to your data is password protected and can only be accessed by Alexandra Datwyler or Judith White via the MailChimp website; this provider is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations.

If you have questions about our privacy policy

We want you to be absolutely confident that we are treating your personal data responsibly, and that we are doing
everything we can to make sure that the only people who can access that data have a genuine need to do so.
Of course, if you feel that we are mishandling your personal data in some way, you have the right to complain.
Complaints need to be sent to what is referred to in the jargon as the “Data Controller”. Here are the details you need for that:
