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.

An anonymised string created from your e-mail address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

Contact forms

My contact form is by Contact 7. I do not collect unnecessary data – only your name, contact email address and the body of your email. For the newsletter, only your name and email address is collected.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


I run Google Analytics on this blog – you can read about their GDPR Compliance HERE

Who we share your data with


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, 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 a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

The newsletter is provided via Mailchimp and you can easily unsubscribe at any time. If you are unable to do this, please email me at and I will manually remove you from the list.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

I work from home and therefore do not wish to disclose my address. However, you can use the site’s contact form, email me at or contact me via facebook @thealisoncross and I’ll be happy to help you.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Your data is stored at Mailchimp. They are fully compliant for GDPR – check their position HERE

What data breach procedures we have in place

If there is a data breach at Mailchimp, they will notify account holders at the earliest opportunity and I will notify you at that time. Since I only collect names and email details, this is all that can be obtained by a data breach at Mailchimp.

What third parties we receive data from

Google Analytics – but it is anonymised and untraceable.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Absolutely none as I have no idea what to do with that lol!

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

All readings are provided for ‘entertainment purposes only’. But I don’t really believe that, but legally I have to say so – and tell you that!
