Privacy Statement

…and all that important stuff

I take the privacy of my readers and those who decide to hang out here at The Cardiff Cwtch very seriously, and so this page explains the different types of personal information collected and how it’s used.


This site uses cookies to provide the best possible browsing experience and so by visiting you’re agreeing to the use of cookies. If you’re not sure what they are (hint, they’re not the edible kind 😉 ) or would like more information on how to disable them please click here.

Usage Data

As well as Stats (provided by Automattic Inc.), The Cardiff Cwtch uses a third party service (Google Analytics) to monitor visitor traffic and behaviour.  This data is collected to better understand visitor numbers, referrals and the popularity of different content and posts.  This service does not identify users.

Mailing List

Readers can sign up at any time to subscribe to updates from The Cardiff Cwtch by email.  By subscribing you are consenting for your email address to be added to our Mailing List and you will receive twice-weekly updates straight into your inbox.  Your email address is never passed on to a third party and you can unsubscribe at any time via a link within the email.


The Cardiff Cwtch allows visitors and readers to comment on blog posts.  If you choose to leave a comment, personal information such as your name, email and IP address are collected and stored.  Comments are always moderated before being published on site; once a user has commented once, their data is stored indefinitely so that they can bypass moderation in future.  I employ an automated spam detection service (Akismet) to filter comments.

Your Rights

You always have the right to request information about any or all of the data held about you, as well as the right to ask for it to be deleted. This of course excludes any data kept for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
