What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the Website 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.
When you contact us via the Contact page, we will collect your name and address for the sole purposes of responding to your message. Your data is not stored by or shared with a third-party plugin, rather it’s stored in the Website database.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on the Website 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.
This Website uses Google Analytics to track Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address.
This list may be amended from time to time at the Website’s sole discretion.
Affiliate Program Participation
The Website engages in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. This means that if you click on an affiliate link (recommended product etc…) a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions on these sales.
The Website is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon sites (Canada, UK, France, Italy, Germany and Japan). As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track referrals.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.

How we protect your data
This is a secure site. HTTPS. Stands for “HyperText Transport Protocol Secure.” HTTPS is the same thing as HTTP, but uses a secure socket layer (SSL) for security purposes. … Therefore, secure websites use the HTTPS protocol to encrypt the data being sent back and forth with SSL encryption. Encryption prevents the easy collection and analysis of web traffic.
