In compliance with UK data and privacy laws (“GDPR”) and in an effort to be more transparent, I have assembled the following information about the data I collect on this website, how I handle it and what I do to help maintain your privacy.

What data I collect #

From this website, I collect the name and email address of those who sign up for my newsletter using the form at the bottom of each page. I also collect the name, email address and message of anyone who contacts me via my contact page.

This websites does not store cookies on your machine, so I cannot identify or track your behaviour when you browse the content on this site. You can verify this using a tool like Cookiemetrix or Cookieserve.

Similarly, this website does not use analytics of any kind to track visitors, however I do use Google Search Console for measuring traffic from Google Search to my site.

What I do with data #

The data I collect via my newsletter sign up form is stored in my Mailchimp account and used for the sole purpose of sending newsletters. I only email people who have genuinely signed up to receive my newsletters. I have no intention of selling your information to any third party data brokers.

The data I collect from my contact page is stored by Netlify, who send me a notification via email when a submision has been received. I use this data to correspond with the contact via email. If the contact becomes a client, then I may use this data to process invoices using FreeAgent, my accounting software.

How I keep your data safe #

I use BitWarden to randomly generate and store a 28-character password for my Mailchimp, Netlify and FreeAgent accounts. I also use two-factor authentication (2FA) in order to keep these accounts as safe as possible from hacks.

With Mailchimp, I use double opt-in during the sign up process to prevent spam accounts and include an unsubscribe link on every email I send out.

⚠️ While I take the security of your personal data extremely seriously, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, I cannot guarantee its absolute security, particularly from third party data breaches.

If you have any concerns #

Please contact me, as soon as possible, if you have any concerns about how your data is being handled or would like me to destroy it.
