Privacy policies of other websites

Our Company website contains links to other websites. Our privacy policy applies only to our website, so if you click on a link to another website, you should read their privacy policy.

Because your personal information is so valuable to both you and us, we strongly believe in minimizing the personal information we collect as well as limiting its use and purpose.

We will use this information as necessary to carry out our obligations, arising from any contracts between you and us, for which we have been given permission.

This information may also be used as required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes, as well as to provide you with the products and services you request from us and notify you about any changes in that regard.

Who we share your data with

Your information is not transferred in connection with the operation of our business, including to our related companies.

Your personal data shall not be processed by these companies and/or by our and their respective employees and service providers.

By submitting personal data, you agree that only we shall store and process it.

Where permitted by law, we reserve the right to release personal data without your consent and/or without consulting you, when we believe that this is appropriate to comply with our legal obligations, to protect the security of our website and related technologies, to prevent and minimise the effects of fraud, and otherwise to protect our legitimate interests and/or the legitimate interests of our customers.

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. You can request this data by sending an email to

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

It is possible that some of your information that we hold may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) which may not provide the same level of protection as within the EEA. It may also be processed by personnel operating outside the EEA who work for us, one of our service providers, or another entity.

Any such transfers of personal data outside the EEA will comply with the requirements of the GDPR.

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing, and/or processing.

We retain your personal data for so long as is necessary with regard to the purposes for which it was collected or lawfully processed further, or for so long as may be necessary in light of our legal obligations.
