What personal data we collect and why


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address, and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to verify its use. After your comment’s approval, your profile picture is public within the context of your comment.


You should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the site.


If you leave a comment, you may opt-in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don’t need to re-enter your details for future comments. These cookies last one year.

Temporary cookies are set when you visit our login page to verify your browser’s cookie acceptance. These contain no personal data and are discarded once you close your browser.

Upon logging in, we set up several cookies to remember your login information and screen preferences. Login cookies last two days, and screen choice cookies last a year. Opting for “Remember Me” keeps your login for two weeks, but logging out removes these cookies.

Customer Orders:

For processing customer orders and contact form enquiries, we collect and store your contact details, including your name, address, email, and phone number. This data is used exclusively for processing and delivering your order, and any related customer service inquiries.

Embedded content:

This site might contain embedded content (like videos, images, articles). This content from other sites behaves as if you’ve visited them. Such sites might gather your data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to that site.

Who we share your data with

Should you request a password reset, your IP address is included in the reset email. Visitor comments may be verified through an automated spam detection service.

How long we retain your data

Comments and their metadata are kept indefinitely to recognize and auto-approve subsequent comments without holding them for moderation.

For registered users, we store the personal information they provide in their profiles. All users can view, edit, or delete their details anytime (except username changes). Website administrators can also access and modify this information.
