Website Traffic and Analysis

When you visit this website, your IP address is detected by Wordfence, the security plug-in used on this site, and by Google Analytics.  The privacy policies and data protection these services offer are outside of my control, so I recommend you visit those websites and read their privacy policies as well.

Traffic analysis data is used to learn where visitors are located, how they find this website, and how they access and navigate through the content.  I aim to provide the best visitor experience I can, and this data can give insight about website performance.

Contact Messages

You can send a private email message using the form on the Contact page.  Your name, email address and message are used for the purpose of responding to your message, when appropriate. The contact message form is protected by Google reCAPTCHA v3 to mitigate data breaches caused by malicious bots. When you go to the Contact page, Google analyses some data about your behaviour to determine if you are a human visitor. Data analysed by Google reCAPTCHA includes: referrer URL, IP address, operating system information, cookies, mouse and keyboard behaviour, date and language settings, JavaScript objects, and screen resolution.

Comments and Spam Protection

All comments and contact messages are filtered by Akismet to prevent or reduce spam messages.  This service is provided by the company Automattic.

Comments are held for approval as a second layer of spam protection.  You must include your name (or nickname) and email address with your comment, but only your name will be displayed.  If you’re logged into a WordPress account when you submit a comment, your WordPress website address and custom avatar will be displayed with your approved comments.
