Comments on articles

When you leave comments on the website I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you have enquired about my services through the contact form on my website, I collect your name and e-mail address. This information is held within WPForms in WordPress.

I need to know this basic personal data in order to contact you regarding your enquiry. You will not be added to any marketing lists unless you have opted in to those yourself.

Links to other websites

My website may contain links to other websites. Once you have used these links to leave my site,  I no longer have any control over that other website.

You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
