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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

When you submit a contact form your name and email address (including your IP address) are captured and sent to the website owners. We do not intend to keep this data for a long period of time but there may be rare cases that we will keep this data indefinitely. We do not use the information submitted through the contact form for marketing purposes and we do not share it with anyone else unless we have the sender’s consent.
