We respect your privacy.  We want to maintain your confidence in our handling of any data and information that is collected during your visit to our website.  We have developed and provided this Privacy Policy to inform you of our practices and policies regarding the collection, use, maintenance, and disclosure of your personal data and information.  We are committed to providing you with adequate information, so you can make an informed decision whether to visit our website and whether you wish to voluntarily provide any personal data or information, e.g. your name, email address, telephone number etc.

Our Privacy Policy is described in the following sections:

Comments
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.

Please note that this website has disabled the Gravatar service as it does not align with our Privacy Policy.  As we understand it, Gravatar provides a picture set up by you to display in the comments fields.  We don’t think the lack of a picture will affect your comments, however do apologise if this does cause you any inconvenience.  We take your privacy seriously.

Media

If you have not contacted me to use my images, then you can’t. Simple as that. Don’t be a jerk. Adhere to copyright law.

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.

Contact forms

Personal data such as name, phone number, and email is captured when someone submits via our contact form.  We do not keep this information beyond the immediate and expected requirement for responding to queries and/or feedback.  The information submitted through our contact form is not used for marketing purposes.

Cookies

“Cookies” are small data files that are written to and stored on your hard drive when you visit a website.  They do not read files on your hard drive.  Like most websites we use cookies to personalise a user’s experience of our website and to make it easier for users to complete forms.  

Our cookies do not track user movement once you leave our website, except for noting your destination address.  Most web browsers allow the user to be notified upon the proposed installation of a cookie and the user can then decline the cookie.  Even if you decline the cookie, you may continue to use our entire website.

We use data and information received from our cookies for marketing purposes and to improve our on-line offering of services and products.  We may also do so to evaluate our site’s technical capacity and to review the navigational structure of our site, eg. to revise or restructure our website for easier and more intuitive movement throughout.

Currently the data and information we collect with cookies is only reviewed in the aggregated form, which is not personally identifiable.  In the future, however, we may correlate the data and information received from cookies with personally identifiable information, to identify specific users and track their website usage.  This personally identifiable information will be limited to contact information, such as the user’s name, address, phone number and email address.  Our use of this combined information will continue to be solely for the purposes stated above with respect to information collected through cookies.

Whether or not the data and information received from cookies is correlated to any specific user, we do not, and will not, disclose, sell, rent or share any data or information derived from cookies with any third parties other than to our site’s affiliated companies (“Affiliates”), except for personally identifiable information saved in cookies when you register for a service, as we disclose in accordance with our policy for Voluntarily Provided Information set forth below, or as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy.

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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Log Files

We also review data and information contained in log files located on our web server, which record the date and time of each visit to our website, the user’s IP address, the referring IP address or domain (prior website visited) and the files viewed on our website (including HTML pages, graphics etc.).  We use the log file information to analyse data in the aggregate to determine the trends and usage of our site.  We cannot correlate the log data to identify specific users.  We do not and will not, disclose, sell, rent or share any information derived from log files with any third parties other than to Affiliates, or as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy.

Voluntarily Provided Information

If you register for a service through our website, make purchases from our online offerings, respond to a request for information or make any other online request of us, you will be voluntarily providing personally identifiable information.  If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, we ask that you please do not provide the requested information. You may nevertheless continue to use most of our website, subject, however, to the collection of information through cookies and log files as discussed above. If you have previously provided personally identifiable information by registration through our website, you may request to be removed from our active database of mailing lists (see the discussion below).

Voluntarily provided information is used to send you announcements of new products, updates, and promotional information, as well as to provide the services or goods that you request and give you better customer service. We share personally identifiable information with our Affiliates, as well as with our third-party business partners, sales representatives and distributors (collectively, “Partners”) who may provide the requested goods or services to you directly or otherwise contact you directly. Moreover, we rely on various third-party service companies (“Service Companies”) to provide certain services (e.g., shipping, credit card billing) for which it is necessary to provide users’ personally identifiable information.

We do not, and will not, disclose, sell, rent or share any personally identifiable information received as a result of enrolment, registrations or e-commerce transactions on our website with any third parties, other than our Affiliates, Partners, Service Companies, or as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy.

Please note that although we may seek to require that Affiliates, Partners, and Service Companies use information regarding our users only in the ways permitted by this Privacy Policy, we do not control and are not responsible for their privacy practices, or those of any other party.

Collection of Data & Information by Our ISP

Our Internet Service Provider (ISP) also collects certain information about your visit. It is the same information contained in a log file that we collect and analyse, i.e., the date and time of the visit, the user’s IP (internet protocol) address, the referring IP address or domain, and the files viewed on our website (including HTML pages, graphics, etc.). In addition, our ISP has access to back-up files containing the personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide (even if your input fails). The ISP does not disclose, share, release, publish, disseminate, rent, or sell any personally identifiable information to any third parties, but does use the log files to analyse data in an aggregate form, which is not personally identifiable information.

Links to Third-Party Websites

Through our web pages, you may connect to third parties’ websites via hyperlinks, and the connections may or may not be obvious. We are not responsible for the collection, use, maintenance, sharing, or disclosure of data and information by such third parties. We encourage our users to be aware of the varied privacy policies of websites that they visit.

Correspondence

We maintain and review email correspondence that you send to us.  We will use (and maintain in a file specific to you) the personally identifiable information disclosed in the email.  As such correspondence contains information that is not transmitted through the operation of our website, it is not subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Required Disclosures of Data and Information

In addition to disclosures to our Affiliates, Partners, and Service Companies, and regardless of anything in this Privacy Policy to the contrary, we may disclose personally identifiable information, with or without prior notice to you, when we believe that the law requires it, in response to subpoenas or at the demand of governmental agencies, to protect our systems or business, to protect other visitors to the website, or to respond to an emergency. If you partake, or we reasonably suspect you of partaking in any illegal activity we may also disclose your personally identifiable information, even without a subpoena, warrant or court order. We may also make disclosures of your personally identifiable information with your affirmative consent.

Maintenance & Transmission of Data and Information

Although we use reasonable efforts to maintain the privacy of your personally identifiable data and information, due to technological limitations, and the risk of unlawful interceptions and accessing of transmissions and/or data, we cannot completely assure you, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable data and information, and any other electronically communicated information, will be absolutely confidential.

For all e-commerce transactions, we use industry-standard commercial encryption technology to protect the data and information that you transmit to us via our website. Although this technology is not flawless, we believe that it provides reasonable protection for your data and information. We will endeavour to update our protective devices as encryption technology develops further.

Once received, personally identifiable information is protected from outside our site by “firewalls,” and access within our site is generally limited to the sales, marketing, and information technology departments. We also seek to require our Affiliates, Partners and Service Companies to exercise reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Your Right to Review and Modify Data and Information

You have the right, at any time, to review and/or modify any of your personally identifiable information that you provide during registration, or any other voluntarily provided information. You may also remove yourself from our active databases of email lists. To do so, you should send an email to our email address requesting that (a) we provide a copy of your profile of personally identifiable information, (b) we update or modify certain personally identifiable information, or (c) you be removed from our databases of active email lists. We will endeavour to comply with your request as soon as reasonably possible. To protect your confidentiality, we can only send a requested profile to the email address listed in the profile. In any event, our back-up files will maintain copies of your personally identifiable information.  We reserve the right to contact former customers or users of the website from time to time.

Users Under 18

This website is not directed at persons under the age of 18.  If you are younger than 18, please do not provide any personally identifiable information in connection with your use of the website.

Assignment

We reserve the right to transfer any and all information we collect from our visitors to a third party in the event that we sell, or transfer substantially all of our assets related to the website to such third party.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Due to changing technological and marketing demands, we must reserve the right to change our policies regarding the privacy of your personally identifiable information in the future. If that happens, we will endeavour to promptly update this Privacy Policy. We may also attempt to provide a message to our customers whose email addresses we have, in conformity with this Privacy Policy, advising of any such change(s). Your continued use of the website following changes to this policy will indicate that you accept the changes.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics
We use Google Analytics in order to collect analysis data.  You can view Google Analytics Terms of Service here.

Who we share your data with

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, 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 (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 an account on this site, or 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.
