Here’s all you need to know about how and why your personal data is collected on, and how I’ll be keeping it safe.

This Site is powered by WordPress, which is part of Automattic.


Automattic, their partners, and users of their services – including WordPress blogs like this one – deploy cookies, as well as providing your ability to control them. Cookies monitor your movement around the web to improve your experience as a reader and to help writers like me see which content is most effective. You can read WordPress/Automattic’s Cookie Policy online, and you can accept cookies via the pop-up bar on my website, or by disabling them in your browser.


This website collects information for WordPress stats, looking at details like page views, sources, link clicks and visitors. I use this data to assess the success and popularity of my writing and the content on my website to inform future decisions and pieces of work. Again, this is managed by Automattic.

Subscribers & interactions

Automattic collects certain information from visitors to WordPress sites like this one, such as follower and subscriber details. It also collects certain information automatically, such as technical data (including IP address and browser type) and visitor interactions (including “likes”). This information is used to run the Site and analyse Site performance.

You have the option to subscribe to or ‘follow’ my blog on WordPress, which means you will be notified when a new blog post goes live so that you never miss any content. I do not collect details of who follows my blog and will not use this information to contact followers or subscribers. The list of followers and subscribers is located in the WordPress dashboard and I do not actively save these. You have the option to unsubscribe/unfollow whenever you want to and to be removed from this list, and to stop recieving notifications.


Commenting on my blog posts is also powered by WordPress/Automattic. You may need to submit your name, web address and email to submit a comment. This information will not be passed on, accessed, saved or used by me. Advertising is also controlled by WordPress/Automattic, and is out of my control as I have chosen to have my site hosted for free by For full information on this again, please view Automattic/Wordpress’s policy.

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that I may hold. If you decide you would like to do this, please email me at
