What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We do not collect any personal data about visitors, however some of the social media plugins on this website (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn etc) may collect personal data.

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.
