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.

Where we send your data

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

How we protect your data

We have implemented various physical, electronic and managerial security procedures in order to protect personal information from loss and misuse, and from unauthorized access, modification, disclosure and interference.

Credit card security

  • All online payments are transmitted over a secure socket layer (SSL) connection.
  • Credit card information is transmitted immediately to a payment gateway solution via an encrypted port.
  • Our company does not store your credit card number in any of our systems, it is used only within the context of the transaction then destroyed upon receipt from an acquiring bank.
  • All credit card payments receive an identification number that is proof of the transaction’s acceptance into the banking system. This identification number can be used to trace any transaction back to the credit card issuer (for example, the bank that issued the MasterCard, or VISA credit card).
  • Personal information is destroyed or de-identified when no longer needed.

Whilst we take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is secure, as the internet is inherently insecure, any personal information or other information you transmit to us online is transmitted at your own risk.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event of a personal data breach we will proceed according with EU legislation Article 33 – “Notification of a personal data breach to the supervisory authority – and Article 34 of the GDPR – “Communication of a personal data breach to the data subject.

Once we assess that a personal data breach is likely to result in high risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subject we must notify with undue delay the affected data subjects.
The Notification to the data subjects must be written in clear and plain language and must contain the following:
• A description of the nature of the breach
• Categories of personal data affected
• Approximate number of data subjects affected
• Name and contact details of the Data Breach Response Team Leader/ Data Protection Officer
• Consequences of the personal data breach
• Measures taken to address the personal data breach
• Any information relating to the data breach
We will record the data breach into the Data Breach Register.

What third parties we sell or rent data

We comply with the Spam Act 2003 and do not sell or rent information to any third parties for the purposes of direct marketing.
