Privacy Policy

We believe that strong electronic privacy is crucial. Therefore any information you enter will be known only to you and us. We pledge that we will not release your personal data to anyone else, any 3rd party, without your consent – period.

We don’t like spam and we will never spam, period.

At we appreciate the value of permission-based email (also known as “opt-in”) whereby companies like us send emails to people who have given their explicit permission to receive that mail.

Email subscriptions
You may change the status of any subscriptions you may have to our newsletters and ezines at any time. Information for doing so is detailed within every email posting.

No information given to 3rd parties
Your contact information may be used occasionally by to notify users of new services, events or similar, but will not be given or sold to third parties.

If we ever do present user information to anyone outside of, it will be in the form of statistical compilations of data from visitors’ browsers and on-site behaviour – this grouped information is used for enhancing our website – e.g. to determine what screen resolution or web browser software our visitors are using. Again – your personal contact information is not ever given to any 3rd party, and we will never spam you.

Our Comments Policy

All comments are moderated for first time commenters. We welcome all points of view and will not censor differing opinions – we encourage intelligent and spirited debate, because that’s what blogging is all about!

Comments may be edited or deleted to remove spam, profanity or for legal reasons; where that has been done we will endeavour to leave a note of explanation.

Spam comments
Links are NOT follow enabled – they are all no-follow. Spammy or keyword based usernames will be edited and have links removed, or simply deleted.
