This page describes how I collect, store, transfer and use personal data. It also tells you about your privacy rights.
How I use your data
I collect personal data through my website, email, and social media platforms. I do not share your information with anyone else, unless it is part of our service agreement.
When you contact me, whether by telephone, through my website or by email, I collect the data you have given to me in order to reply with the information you need. I record your request and my reply in order to increase the efficiency of my services.
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.
You can disable optional cookies when you use my website. If you leave a comment on my 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.

How I share your data
I do not share your information with anyone else, such as third-party advertisers. In cases where I need to share your information with my partners, for example with a graphic designer, I will declare this explicitly in your service agreement. If I am sharing your data with a partner, I will only do so through secure links.
How long I retain your data
I retain your data for the duration of the time that we work together, to allow me to provide you with the right support. I archive your data two years after we last worked together. Archived data stays in my secure database for audit reasons but is not used actively for marketing or other promotions.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. Data is permanently deleted when it has been archived for seven years. This is so the website can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Your rights over your data
At any time, you may contact me to request that I provide you with the personal data we hold about you. At any time you may review or update personally identifiable information that I hold about you. If you would like to do that, please contact me.
Where I store your data
Data is stored in the form of emails and secure cloud storage.
