In the unlikely event that a liquidator, administrator or receiver is appointed your information may be transferred to a third party purchaser of the business provided that purchaser undertakes to use your information for the same purposes as set out in this policy.

We may ask for proof of your identity before providing any information and reserve the right to refuse to provide any information if identity is not established.


Cookie Policy

Like millions of other website owners, we use Google Analytics on this website.

Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about my visitors (you). It's something like an advanced server log.

What does Google Analytics record?

What do I do with your data?

The tracking information allows me to better understand the kind of people who come to my site and what content they're reading. This allows me to make better decisions about design and writing.

Occasionally, I will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.

All of my activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.

Want to opt out of tracking?

You can also opt out of Google's advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.
