Privacy policy

The recent GDPR regulations mean that I have to have an updated privacy statement/policy. I’m just a person who has always respected people’s personal details online, but I have to have something about this apparently, so here it is.

When you add a comment to these pages, send me a message via the contact form, or sign up to the mailing list, your email address is required. I do not share your email address or any other personal information with third-parties.

Occasionally, in comments, people want to be put in contact with another person. In cases like that, I ask the person in question if I can share their email address with the person enquiring. I never pass on personal details without this permission.

Cookies are used on, as they are on most websites, to gather basic visitor statistics (eg popular pages and numbers of page views per day) and by the comments form if you add a comment. You can turn off cookies at anytime by modifying your browser’s settings.

I am still reviewing how various aspects of this long-running online resource of mine comply with the GDPR regulations.

If you have any concerns about any data I hold please email me via the contact form.
