Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: We are committed to ensuring your privacy is protected. We assure you that any information you give when using this website will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. Changes may take place to this policy periodically to keep in line with GDPR and other regulations.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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 anonymised 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.

We reserve the right to delete comments where they are considered abusive or spam without prior notice.

Contact forms

Where information has been left in a contact form, this information will be kept for the duration of the need of contact. This will then be permanently deleted.


Demographic information such as preferences, interests and which posts have been viewed may be collected for analytic reasons. This is purely to make sure that the content we publish is relevant to our audience.


If you leave a comment on our 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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


By subscribing to our twice weekly newsletter, you are agreeing to receive emails from us. We use the third party app Mailchimp to distribute these. For more information about Mailchimp, click here. Our newsletters contain information about our latest published posts, general information as well as occasional free printable downloads. The aim is to keep our audience and subscribers updated but this is not a mandatory service and you can unsubscribe at any time. We reserve the role right to modify or stop the newsletter at any time.

Who we do with your information

We will not share your information with anyone without consent. We may use the information you provide to improve our products and services. We may periodically send emails with promotional offers, free downloadable printables, and content related posts.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

Where we send your data

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

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

When working with a company, AD will be displayed followed by what type of content it is e.g. gifted or sponsored (paid content). This does not affect what is thought of a product and all opinions are honest and true.

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites that may be of interest to you. You do not have to click through to these websites if you do not wish to. However, once you click on one of these links, you are leaving our website and we have no control over any of these websites. We can’t therefore be responsible for the protection and privacy whilst visiting these sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the relevant privacy statement for that website.
