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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


When someone visits our site we use Google Analytics to collect standard, anonymous internet log data to track visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to discover statistical information such as the number of visitors and paths taken to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify an individual. We also make no attempt to discover the identities of those visiting our site. We do not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any other source. In the case of wanting to collect personally identifiable information through our website, e.g. via the commenting and messaging sections, we are up-front about this and make it clear that any information we collect will not be used for any financial gain or hidden usage.

Who we share your data with

We share your information in very limited circumstances set out below:

  • Where we’re obliged to do so (for example a legal request),
  • When we need to work with a third party or core service provider. Each provider is carefully selected, and we’d only pass on the information required for them to perform that service on our behalf; they cannot use your data for any other purpose e.g. their own marketing purposes;

We’ll never sell your information. We’ll always comply with all relevant data protection legislation (including the General Data Protection Regulation).

How long we retain your data

For products & services we only retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it is provided, or until we are advised that you wish for your personal information to be removed (see your rights, below).

If you leave a comment on our website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, 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.
