GDPR Compliance – sorry, but we have to do this!

This is a short post on GDPR which comes into effect today on May 25, 2018.

Any cookies on our website are used to ensure normal website functions. These cookies cannot be switched off because the website wouldn’t function properly without them. However, it is our understanding that these identifiers do not store any personal data.

When you leave a comment on this blog, WordPress will automatically store your gravatar name, IP Address, comment, and email address. So leaving a comment is considered a definite intention (as defined by the GDPR), giving us consent to store this information, and permission to contact you in the future.

Signing up for emails when new posts are put on the site falls into the same category.

We do not sell or share your personal information with any third parties under any circumstances.

If you wish us to remove your data for any reason please get in touch.

Judi Chadaway and Fiona McKenzie
