What we collect
We may collect the following information if you submit a contact form or enter a competition:

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

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.
Who we share your data with
By default we do not share any personal data with anyone. The only exception to this is if you win one of our competitions, the winners details will be given to the competition promoter in order to send the prize.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment on a post, 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 our moderation queue.

If you 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.
