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.
The contact form is hosted by https://www.emailmeform.com and any information submitted will be processed by them as well as sending me a copy via email. For further details see their Compliance Center.

How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services
What about third party links?
By using affiliate links to Amazon, Blackwell’s, Bookshop.org and other retailers from this site, your purchase(s) will be anonymously tracked and a small percentage of sale price will be paid to me. I have no way of linking individuals to purchases.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
