Privacy Policy


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.


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.

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.


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.

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.


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.

What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small files which help us store your log-in information, count the number of visitors to our website, and tailor your browsing experience by suggesting content, adverts or events that are as relevant as possible to your profile, shopping habits, etc…

Cookies are managed by your web browser and only the cookie-issuer is likely to read or change the information contained in them.

What Purpose Is Served By The Cookies Issued From Our Site?

Operational (to facilitate navigation)

• Remembering information you provided when registering for one of our services, so that you don’t have to waste time re-entering that same information every time you want to re-access our services;

• Remembering the products and/or services you’ve ordered/used, up to the confirmation page of your order;

• Benefiting from the caching of pages on our websites or our services for faster access to these various pages.

Disabling these cookies does not stop you navigating our website but you will lose some of the features and functionality of our website (validation of an order, for example).

Analytic cookies enable us to make improvements by providing us with information on how visitors use our site and on its performance (for example, what are the most-visited pages, what do web users search for in the search engine …).

Targeted or behavioral advertising

Targeted advertising or ‘re-targeting’ cookies allow us to tailor the online advertising shown to you. Disabling them will not stop online adverts from appearing – it simply prevents the personalisation element.

Accepting Or Declining Cookies

You are free to disable cookies at any time. Your browser can also be set to notify you about the cookies stored on your computer and to ask you whether to accept them or not.

You can accept or decline cookies on a case by case basis or refuse them altogether.

Just remember that configuring your browser settings is likely to change your ability to access our services. In order to manage cookies so your needs are matched as closely as possible, we suggest you bear in mind the purpose of the cookies when configuring your browser settings.

How do you set your preferences on your chosen browser?

Each browser is different when it comes to setting your preferences regarding cookies. You’ll find instructions on how to change your cookie preferences in your browser’s help menu.
