This document is reviewed periodically to ensure the information contained is up-to-date.
This page is mostly related to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) within the EU however, it also applies to other, similar regulations around the world.
I believe it to be good practice to provide a unified experience and service to all users, worldwide. As such, I have carefully put together this document in an effort to make all information regarding data collection and usage as clear as possible.
When visiting this site, you can change your settings at any time here.
If you have a question regarding any of this at any time, please feel free to get in touch.

I would like a copy of my data, how can I request it?
To request a copy of any data I have stored on you, please get in touch, choosing ‘GDPR’ as the reason for contact.
Any request may take up to a month to process. You will be asked to verify your identity prior to any copy being sent.

To request any data I have stored on you be deleted please get in touch, choosing ‘GDPR’ as the reason for contact.
Any request may take up to a month to process. You will be asked to verify your identity prior to any data being deleted.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to provide updates, any level of support, or refunds for purchased products should you wish for your information to be deleted. You may also not be able to use any purchased products properly, as they require an account for updates to show in the WordPress Admin of any actively used sites.
Should you purchase any product in the future, your information will begin to be collected again. In this situation, you may wish to get in touch to have your data deleted again, if needed.
I don’t want you to sell my data
