We take your privacy very seriously.

We do not actively track you as an individual, rather we have systems in place to keep your name and email address, as well as other identifiable provided information stored so we can provide you with the high level of service you expect from us.

We used advanced website analytics tracking data as detailed below:

The website does use cookies when you browse this website. These are used to ensure proper running of this website and also to help us improve your experience when browsing.
We use 3rd Party / Tracking / Advertising cookies, as detailed above.

We use Google analytics, Google DoubleClick, Gravatar, Google Tag Manager, Facebook Audience, Facebook insights, Twitter analytics, Google Search Console, Fastbase analytics and WordPress stats, all of which to help us understand how potential customers interact with our website and make the experience better for you.

Should you send us an email via the contact form, your name, email address and message will be emailed to us (as you would expect). Our website and form entries are SSL protected, to ensure encryption of the data while on route to our email servers. This information is then kept private and SSL secured in our CRM. We will store this information within our own email system so that we are able to respond to you. We will not share this data with third party businesses to market to you.

Should you comment on a blog post or web page on this site, then your name, email address, IP address and the message will be stored in our website database (as you would expect). This makes your name, website address and comment (but not your email address) viewable by the general public on the website.


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.

An anonymised 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 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.

How to correct inaccurate information

Once posted, you cannot change or remove any comments you have submitted on our website pages and/or posts. However, if you would like to have this information removed please contact us and we will do this for you, at a time of our convenience.

You should know that because of technical constraints, all information is never completely removed from our databases or cloud systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests that it be removed. We will aim to remove all publicly-facing information first, then quarterly we will optimise our servers and databases, further removing any server stored information.
