Links & Backlinks to third party websites

We may include the use of third party Website URLs within our Site. However once a user clicks on any such link and leaves our site, then we do not have any control over that other website. Our responsibility for a users personal data only extends to usage within this Site. Therefore any third party Sites are not governed by this privacy statement. We recommend that users adhere and observe the privacy statement of every website they visit upon leaving our Site via a link.

 

Our website is also back linked on third party Sites which makes it possible for you to be referred directly to our site. We once again advise users not to assume that we adhere to the same privacy policy as our referring domain. Our privacy policy is only applicable when used in the context of our own Site specified within this document.

Data Retention & Security

When you communicate through the Site, we will maintain your contact Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.

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.

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to safeguard your personal data and prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we store your information using suitable encrypted physical & cloud based storage and Content Management Systems.

This information will also be stored via the relevant cloud based security systems of our third parties (Google, MailChimp, WordPress, POWr). Please refer directly to their own Data Security policies and terms of use.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

The Site is intended for use by responsible individuals from the age of 12+. If in any instance we use content within the Site that is not deemed suitable for users under the age of 12 then we will ensure that clear warning notices are displayed to protect such individuals from inappropriate content.

Changes

We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.

What rights you have over your data

If you have communicated, 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.
