This includes information provided at the time of registering to use my site, subscribing to my service, posting material or requesting further services.

  • Details of your visits to my site including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, whether this is required for my own billing purposes or otherwise and the resources that you access.

IP addresses

I may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration [and to report aggregate information to my advertisers. This is statistical data about my users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Cookies

My website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of my website. This helps me to provide you with a good experience when you browse my website and also allows me to improve my site.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that I store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

The cookies I use are “analytical” cookies. They allow me to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This helps me to improve the way my website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. You can find more information about the individual cookies I use and the purposes for which I use them in the table below:

I use Squarespace for my website and they use, on my behalf, some necessary cookies because they allow visitors to navigate and use key features on my site. I have categorised these cookies into two:

1 Functional and Required Cookies

Squarespace uses Analytics and Performance cookies to collect information on my behalf about how you interact with my site. Storing these cookies is how they populate the data in Squarespace Analytics, such as traffic sources, unique visitors, and cart abandonment.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

If you are a new customer I will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this.

I do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to my advertisers, but I may provide them with aggregate information about my users (for example, I may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). I may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). I may make use of the personal data I have collected from you to enable me to comply with our advertisers’ wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.

Disclosure of your information

I may disclose your personal information to any member of my group.

I may disclose your personal information to third parties:
