As part of the registration process for our occasional newsletters, we collect your email address and use it only for that purpose. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. The process is double “opt-in”: if you add your email to the mailing list you will receive a reply to check that you wish to confirm your subscription and only then will you receive mailings. You can unsubscribe at any time, either by clicking the link at the bottom of one of our newsletters or by contacting us.
If you use any of our contact forms we collect only your name and email address, plus your comments. These are retained only as long as needed to reply to your comment or query.
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. You can contact the editor to request this here.

Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.
