1. Introduction

We am fully committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Nothing is more annoying than receiving spam emails and phone calls from data controllers and individuals, to which you did not give your details to. We work hard to keep your information safe and secure, by using SSL encryption (https://). I follow strict procedures, set by the information commissioner’s office and the government, on how personal information is stored and used and we also limit who sees it to help stop any unauthorised person getting hold of it.

This Privacy Policy (and any other documents referred to in it) sets out the basis on which I will process any personal information collected through our activities as a “Data Controller” – most commonly when dealing with enquiries or information that is gathered or sent through to us via our website. Some data you may send through are linked to external sites, such as ‘Yoast‘, the Search Engine Optimisation plugin.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it.

Two quick things I hope you will find useful:

  • I will not spam you.
  • I will not sell, distribute or otherwise make your personal information public.
