Personal information

Personal information can be submitted in two places on this website; via the contact form or directly emailed using the contact email address. Information submitted via the contact form will not be used for any other purpose than to respond to you, unless you request otherwise. You cannot unknowingly reveal any personal information by browsing this website & we will not capture any personal information without your knowledge. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control for example (through which our contact form is opererated), (email client) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest) please see these organisations own privacy policies.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy (most likely to be responding to your enquiry). However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years. This also applies to any data that may have been downloaded from the contact form

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at [email protected]

This website has been created using an online application by a company called Moonfruit.

Affliate Links (Please also see our affliate disclosure at:

We use a third party Affliate Marketing Website ( in order to earn commision through any purchases made through affliate links in this website.  Please see how they manage data privacy below:  

Affiliate Marketing Networks

If someone clicks on an affiliate link, they may notice additional information in the website address; e.g. This information will briefly show in the address bar before arriving at the retailer’s site. This is called the domain of an affiliate network, an intermediary company who manage the relationship between the website and retailer.

Data Privacy

Sales that result from consumers clicking on affiliate links are recorded, and the network securely provides encrypted details of which websites generated those clicks and sales to the retailer. The encryption process means the data does not contain anything that can personally identify you, and affiliate links do not capture personal data unless that data is specifically requested and entered by the consumer, such as an enquiry for double glazing or a holiday brochure. The link may capture the IP address of the computer used which can show the customer location.

If you are concerned about how affiliate marketing is being used on a website that you have visited please email us: [email protected]
