3.1. Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to trak user interaction. We use this data to determine the nember of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also record your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identity you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).
FYI our website uses the analytics.js implementation of GA. Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
In addition tot Google Analytics, this website may collect* information (already held in the public domain) attributed to the IP address of the computer or device that is being used to access it. The information is supplied tot us from Whoisvisiting.com
The Whoisvisiting system does not use your IP address to identify you, the individual, in any way.
No cookies are used by the Whoisvisiting system. The Whoisvisiting system will only lookup information when a static IP address is being used. Differences between a static and dynamic IP address

Only your name will be shown on the public-facing website although if the supplied email address is linked to a Gravatar account, your Gravatar photo will also be displayed.
Your comment and it’s associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to either 1. remove the comment or 2. remove the post. Should you wish to have the comment and it’s personal data deleted, please email us here using the email address that you commented with. If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before posting a comment.

3.3 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our contact page or an email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in serction 6.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email an sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)
Our own SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices. However, not all mail servers are secured in such a way. Therefore, we would suggest tht you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or otherwise sensitive information within an email
3.4 Email newsletter
If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. Didn’t you signup, you can unsubscribe below the mail. We consider MailChimp to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems. Your email adress will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you spcifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletter that we send you. If you are under 16 years of age you must obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.
While your email address remains within the MailChimp database, you will receive perodic (approximately one per month) newsletter-style emails from us.
As detailed in section 3.2. above, if you submit a comment to a blog post published on this website some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This is currently the only occasion where personal data will be stored on this website. This dat is currecntly stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this website is build on (wordpress). In the near future we aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual. Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many webapplication developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it ons this website as soon as we are able to.
We use a number of third parties to process personal data on our behalf. These third parties have been carefully chosen. All 3 of them are based in the USA and are EU-US Privacy Shield compliant.
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third party data processors to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
