What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, 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 on the website.

Contact forms

We respect your privacy and are the sole owners of the information collected on this site and only have access to or collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact. Your information will not be sold or rented to anyone and we will only use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us.

We will not share your information with any party outside our organization, other than as is necessary to fulfill a request such as, for instance, to deliver an order. Unless you ask us to desist, we may contact you via email or Mail Chimp in the future to advise you about workshops, products, services, or changes to this privacy policy.


If you leave a comment on our 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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. As we respect your privacy, this cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Cookies can enable us to enhance the experience on our site. We use cookies but we do not link them to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Who we share your data with

If we use an outside shipping service to ship orders or a credit card processing service for payments, we share necessary data. We respect your privacy. These services do not retain, share or store personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.

How long we retain your data

We retain indefinitely retained indefinitely any comment and its metadata so that we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. We respect your privacy so 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. We keep some information for administrative, legal, or security purposes if obliged to.
