What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you register for any marketing based email communication directly from our site, promotional competitions or email services, we will use your email address to send you relevant content.

If you opt in to receiving marketing communications from us we will send you editorial based emails and promotional emails from us for our carefully selected partners.

We will not send you any marketing communications unless you have expressly opted in to receive them. Additionally all marketing and transactional based emails that we send feature one click unsubscribes.


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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Who we share your data with will not give or sell any personal data to any third party companies, organisations or individuals without your prior consent.

For our clients, we provide insights in the form of aggregated data, which does not include any individual personal data.

We provide data to other companies in our corporate group and technical service providers inside and outside the EU that require access to data in order to assist us in providing our services. In each case we have in place safeguards that enable these transfers to happen in a way that ensures that data is handled in accordance with similar standards to those applicable in the EU which include: the EU-US Privacy Shield for transfers to business partners in the US; and European Commission approved standard contract clauses for other transfers outside the EU. A copy of these documents can be provided upon request.

Finally, if any authority, police force or regulator requested data from us, then we would normally comply with such request without having to notify you or other users.

How long we retain your data

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

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.
