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.

This website uses a standard contact form. When you enter data in the form and click submit the data is sent via email and we will use that data to evaluate and respond to your enquiry. We will then have your email in our inbox for responses but we will not add that email address to our mailing list unless you fill in the Join our Mailing list form.
If you do choose to join our Mailing list via the mailing list form, you will be sent a confirmation email which you must action to be added to the mailing list.

How we protect your data and what data breach procedures we have in place
We protect customer data with the following site features:
- We are entirely using SSL/HTTPS throughout our sites. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so personal identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization.
- While we store user account information we do not store any credit card details. Payments are managed by PayPal and Stripe both of whom store the sensitive data and provide a token to us for payment.
- Databases are sanitized (actual user personal details are removed) before deploying to development or testing environment.
In case of a data breach, System administrators will immediately go through affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed after informing the user.
