It is important that you notify me of any changes to your personal information as soon as possible.

I also receive personal information indirectly, from the following sources in the following scenarios:

  • I collate publicly available contact and other relevant information.
  • I collate information from and or about organisations or individuals with whom I engage or may wish to contact or engage with as part of my activities or research.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful basis I rely on for processing this information is:

  • Maintain a list of subscribers to communications from me.
  • Personally identifiable subscribing information will not be made public or shared with third parties other than as specified in this privacy notice.
  • I reserve the right to disclose your personal information to meet legal and regulatory obligations or when I believe that disclosure is necessary to protect my rights, avoid litigation, protect your safety or the safety of others or investigate fraud. I may also disclose information about you if I determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of public importance.
  • To maintain financial records.
  • To facilitate administration and management.
  • I may share your information when necessary with third party services or contractors I ask to carry out a service or action on my behalf, e.g. MailChimp. I try to ensure your information will not be used by the third party for any other purposes.
  • I do not sell or otherwise provide personal information to other companies for the marketing of their own products or services.


I take the security of information I store very seriously and I endeavour to take appropriate reasonable steps to ensure data is securely stored.

I will keep personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which I collected it, and I will keep data in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements. Normally, my retention period for personal data collected is a minimum of six years after the end of the year in which any service, need or relevance has ceased. Where your personal data is no longer required I will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner.


Under data protection law, you have rights including:

  • THE RIGHT TO BE INFORMED – Individuals have the right to be informed about the collection of their personal data, except when an individual already has the information, or if it would involve a disproportionate effort to provide it to them, or it would render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of the processing.
  • THE RIGHT OF ACCESS – You have the right to access your personal information, this is commonly referred to as subject access.
  • THE RIGHT TO RECTIFICATION – You have the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified, or completed if it is incomplete.
  • THE RIGHT TO ERASURE – You have the right for personal data to be erased, this right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances.
  • THE RIGHT TO RESTRICT PROCESSING – You have the right to request the restriction of personal data, this right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances.
  • THE RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY – This right is only applicable should I rely on the lawful basis of consent or performance of contract for processing the information, and processing is carried out by automated means.
  • THE RIGHT TO OBJECT – You have the the right to object to the processing of your personal data. This right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances.
  • RIGHTS IN RELATION TO AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING INCLUDING PROFILING – I do not undertake automated individual decision-making and profiling.

You are not normally required to pay any charge for exercising your rights. However, in certain circumstances, for example additional requests for the same data or if I think your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, you may be subject to an administrative fee.

If you make a request, I normally have one month to respond to you. If I should charge a fee, the one-month time limit does not begin until I have received the fee.
