General Data Protection Regulation

As some of you may know, and those that don't from the 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect, this is a (EU 2016/679) regulation that is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for EU residents.

It quantifies and clarifies what data controllers can do. It effects us in that we store some personal information from yourselves, as a individual you have the following rights these are detailed below;

If you invoke your right to erase, we as a community shall remove all data relating to personal information for yourselves, this includes all stored IP Address's, your Email Address, and any other personal information you have posted on this site. However, where your data would impact the site. In this instance your post will become annoymous and no information relating to yourself will be stored.

If you wish to restrict processing you can disable the option for emails to be sent to you without your consent, this is available within your profile settings, in the Notifications section. You can edit who can see your personal details within the Account Settings section.

Hopefully none of this will apply to us here at this site, but we should inform you what data we do store and how we will comply with the new ruling.

Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on all our websites and how it affects you.

Short version
•We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
•Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can't control them but we don't believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
•If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we'll never share it with others without your express permission.
•We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don't know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website - such as the 'Like' and 'Tweet' buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you're logged in; for example Facebook use this to say 'x of your friends like this'. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn't to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

Discussion comments

To allow visitors to take part in our forums and other features on the site we use a forum system called SMF.  This software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.  Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your username, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people.

When you register we will record specific personal information about you, such as your username and email address.  We will also collect and store information about your use of our services so as to improve them. For example, we keep a log of what features are being used at any time.


We may send you email notifications which you have specifically requested (such as newsletters or notifications. You have the ability to opt out of any of this communication at any time.

We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties.

Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.

Of course you are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. Nobody at will ever ask you for your password, so please don't trust anybody asking you for it.

Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.

Any questions?

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your personal data, please write to us by email to
