If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
- Forms related cookies
When you submit data to us through a form such as those found on the contact pages or comment forms, cookies may be set to remember your user details for future correspondence. We collect and store your contact details from the contact forms to allow us to respond to your enquiry.
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.
Third Party Cookies
This site uses Google Analytics, one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions on the web, for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site, technical details relating to what browser you are using and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content and improve the site for you.

From time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience on the site whilst ensuring we understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.
We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. a blog post may include an embedded video from YouTube). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
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.
- If you submit a request through one of our contact forms, the data will be kept for 90 days form submission data. After this time it will be permanently removed.
