What personal data I collect and why I collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site I 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.

Contact forms

If you choose to subscribe to my mailing list, I will store the name and email address you provide as well as which categories you prefer to subscribe to. This information will be used solely to send you an email to let you know about new blog posts or information I think you would like to know.


If you order any of my greetings cards or other craft products I am selling (or may sell in the future) I will collect your name and email address as well as your postal address so that I can send you your purchases. Your address will be used only for this purpose and will not be shared with anyone else (other than the postal service who will deliver your order), I may use your email address to let you know if there is a special event like a sale happening on the sales page. I do not anticipate this would be any more often than twice a year and you have the option of deleting your details at any time.


If you leave a comment on my site, you may opt-in to save 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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 one 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 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who I share my Data With

Other than the postal service seeing your address on any craft products you order I will not share your address with anyone. I use Mail Poet to deliver newsletters, but your name and email address are stored on my website alone. My Website is hosted by Siteground who may have access to the site if there is a major technical problem.

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 (if any), 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). Michael and I 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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we 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.

Where I send your data

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

Your contact information

This information is fully explained in the What personal Data I collect and how I use it section.
