Who we are
This website is at https://simonchadwick.net. It is owned and run by me, Simon Chadwick. I am based in Armagh. The site is hosted in Ireland. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
When you leave a comment, the site collects the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Comments on this site are filtered for spam comments by the Akismet anti-spam service. The information Akismet collects but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
If you leave a comment on the site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. If you send me an email then the message and metadata are retained indefinitely.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data the site holds about you, including any data you have provided to it. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
