Disclosure of your information
I do not rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies.
I will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal data is not disclosed to regional/national institutions and authorities, unless required by law or other regulations.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although I will do my best to protect your personal data, I cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to my website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once I have received your information, I will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Your rights – access to your personal data
You have the right to ensure that your personal data is being processed lawfully (“Subject Access Right”). Your subject access right can be exercised in accordance with data protection laws and regulations. If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. Any subject access request must be made in writing to the Data Controller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will provide your personal data to you within the statutory time frames.
To enable me to trace any of your personal data that I may be holding, I may need to request further information from you. If you have a complaint about how I have used your information, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Who I share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long I retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on my website, I 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.

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