Please note that some links on this blog are affiliate links and I earn a small commission at no cost to you. When I link items I do it because I love the item and not because I will earn a commission. Earning a commission helps me keep this blog running. You have the choice to purchase or not purchase an item through my affiliated link if you do not wish to. As always, thank you for supporting my blog.

What Personal Data We Collect and Why
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
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.
When you sign up for our email list your name and email will be saved to our records.
Embedded Content From Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who We Share Your Data With
Third-party applications we use to form and send our emails.
Flodesk – we use this service to send emails and newsletters. When you subscribe to our email list, your name and email address immediately get filtered to Flodesk where it is recorded and stored.
Google Analytics – this service is used to track website usage. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What Rights You Have Over Your Data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
