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.

Use of cookies

The website uses cookies to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed by me or our remarketing partners on your hard drive by a web page server. My cookies do not run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your computer, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to your computer.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenient feature to save you time. The cookie tells the server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise the website pages, or register with the website, a cookie helps the website recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your Personal Information, such as your billing address or site preferences. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the website features that you customised.

I may place the following cookies:

Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of my website or make use of e-billing services.

Analytical/performance cookies. They allow me to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps me to improve the way my website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the website. This enables me to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to the website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. I will use this information to make our website more relevant to your interests and for remarketing as described below.

If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept, this can usually be done within your browser settings. Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which I have no control.

How to reject cookies

If you do not want to receive cookies, you can usually choose to opt-out by modifying your browser settings to decline them. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to access all or parts of, or to fully experience the interactive features of, the Bec Fowler services or web pages you visit.

For more information, generally on cookies, including how to disable them, please refer to aboutcookies.org. This site also provides details on how to delete cookies from your computer.

More simply put:

I use cookies to enhance your online experience. If you do not want to receive cookies, you can reject them by opting out or modifying your browser settings.

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.

Links to other websites:

My Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by Bec Fowler.

Bec Fowler has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party web sites or services.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law, I will only hold your Personal Information on our systems for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Policy, or until you request that the information be deleted in accordance with your right of erasure (see ‘Your Rights’ section below).

Even if I delete your Personal Information, I reserve the right to maintain a copy for legal, tax or regulatory purposes, but in such event, I will do so only as long as necessary to fulfil those legal, tax or regulatory purposes. Please contact: hello@becfowler.co.uk for more information.

Who I share your information with

I will only disclose Personal Information to third parties:

when I use vendors, lawyers and service providers to assist me in meeting business or operating needs, such as providing legal services, hosting our website, communicating with users, delivering and improving our services, e-mail communication, invoicing and payments, customer support services and analytics. These service providers may only access, process or store Personal Information pursuant to my instructions and to perform their duties to me, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations; or

when I have your explicit consent to share your Personal Information; or

when I determine that disclosure is required to protect the rights, property,

or personal safety of users of the website, or to respond to lawful subpoenas, warrants, or requests by public or regulatory authorities, including requests by law enforcement authorities; or

if I sell some or all of our business or assets, I may disclose your Personal Information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets, and if the transaction closes, then your Personal Information may be transferred to the buyer.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Data Security and Integrity

When Personal Information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

However, while I do my best to protect your Personal Information, I cannot guarantee the security of all data which is transmitted to the website or to another website via the internet or similar connection.
