What we collect

When you sign up or leave a comment, we might collect your email, name, IP address or any other deets you willingly share with us. Don’t worry; we’ll always ask nicely before taking anything! We also collect the browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

We’re not snooping around – Promise!. We collect your info to update you with the latest blog posts, news, and other exciting stuff we think you’d love. We want to make sure your experience here is as wonderful as possible!

We use an anonymised code (called a hash) to check if you’ve got a Gravatar linked to your email. They’ve got their own privacy policy going on over here: [Gravatar Privacy Policy Link]. Once we give your comment the green light, your profile pic is visible for everyone to see alongside your comment!
