What personal data I collect and why I collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site this data is collected along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spare detection.

An anonymized 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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


I may process information you provide in any enquiry submitted to us regarding the provision of services. The enquiry data may be processed for the purposes of offering, marketing and selling services to you. The legal basis for this processing this data is to create a contract between you and us for the provision of services.

During our conversations I will keep notes about you and your requirements. These notes are only available to our team and kept only for the provision of services to you.


I may process transaction information, including purchases of services, that you enter into with us. This data may include your contact details and the transaction details. The legal basis for this processing is to provide services under a contract that we enter into.

All data

I may process personal data identified in this policy, where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. The legal basis for this processing is to protect our legal rights, your legal rights and the legal rights of others.


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, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
