Privacy Policy

We just wanted to let you know what data we collect from you and how we store and use it.

Use Of Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

I use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used and which countries site visitors are based in. This helps me analyse data about webpage traffic and improve my website in order to tailor it to customer needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes (you are not personally identifiable from it) and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Contact Forms

You can use the contact form on this site to contact me. The form will send me your name, email address and your query. I will not share that information with any third parties, unless required by law. I will only use that information to respond to your query. The information will be saved in my email program but can be deleted on request.

Newsletter Sign Up

Anyone can sign up, for free, to one my newsletters. When you sign up, I ask for your name and email address. These are held securely in Mailchimp (password protected) and only myself and my admin team have access to this information. You can read Mailchimp’s privacy policy here.

I will never use your contact details for any purpose other than to send you occasional blog posts, articles of interest and updates about upcoming workshops.

When I send out a newsletter, MailChimp adds a ‘web beacon’ to the email. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us recognize when a subscriber has opened an email or clicked on a link. These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and the time associated with each open and click for a campaign. Mailchimp shares this data with me so I can tell how an email campaign has performed and what actions subscribers took. This helps me to learn what interests my readers.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, using the link at the bottom of each email. If you unsubscribe, I will delete your contact details but you can resubscribe via my website at any time.

I am based in Australia. This means that in signing up for our material, you agree to have your contact details transferred outside of the EU for the purposes above.

I will not share your information with any third parties, unless required by law.

Embedded content and links to and from other websites

My website may contain links to other websites of interest. This privacy policy applies only to my website‚ so I encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. I cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from our website.

In addition, if you linked to my website from a third party site, I cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.
