What data is collected, why and for how long?

Contact form

    Data collected: Your name, email address and project details (if provided) submitted via the contact form.

    Why? So I can get in touch with you and respond to your request.

    How long? If a business relationship develops as a result of this contact, I’ll keep hold of your details based on legitimate interests for as long as that business relationship continues. If a business relationship hasn’t developed, your details will be deleted within one year of the enquiry. I won’t share your details with anyone else.

However, if at any time you change your mind, please email and I’ll remove it for you (alternatively, you may be able to remove the comment yourself). Please note, it’s also part of my process to back-up my site using Dropbox, in the event of my site breaking. All comments are backed-up as part of this process. Please refer to Dropbox’s privacy policy for more information.
