When visitors fill in our contact forms, a copy of the message is sent securely to our office, and a copy also remains on the server, in the website's administration dashboard, so we can refer back to it.
If you upload images to the website, in a contact or comment form, 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 you upload for use on the website.

We use Google Analytics to track the number of visitors this site receives, and to help us better understand how the site is used, so we can create more of the kind of content our users read and engage with most.
Google Analytics Cookies are created as soon as you visit a website on which a valid Google Analytics tracking code is installed and is fired. Since all cookies are browser specific, if you return to a website via another web browser then Google Analytics will set different set of cookies.
We do not share any form information with any 3rd parties. Your usage data is however shared with Google Analytics. If you leave a blog comment, it will be scanned by Akismet for spam.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users who 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.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request that we erase any comment(s), or close/remove any user account. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Visitor comments are checked through the Akismet automated spam detection service. Akismet is a spam fighting service that protects millions of WordPress sites from comment and contact form spam.
Any contact information gathered by forms is used only internally, for communications with our visitors and customers.
