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.
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.
While the Contact Form widget doesn’t store data, it does handle user submitted data. As such, it’s a good idea to ask for consent before transmitting this data. A consent button has been added to that form to comply with General Data Protection Regulation. (GDPR) is European Union law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union.

This site does use Google Analytics as a guide to better tuning the site to customer needs and our effectiveness in doing that relates to a better visitor experience.
