What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When you buy something from us, you have the option to sign up for our newsletter when you check out. If you tick the box giving your consent to receive the newsletter, we’ll store your name and email address in our MailChimp account so that we can send you product launches, let you know about sales and special offers, and so on. You can unsubscribe from this at any time by following the link at the bottom of any of our emails. If you don’t elect to receive the newsletter, you won’t hear from us (except for download link emails for your purchases). You can read about MailChimp’s privacy policy here, and their terms and conditions here.


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.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you contact us on the Contact Us page, your email will be stored (so that we can reply to you) but we do not use this for marketing purposes and it won’t be passed to anyone else.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

We use very little embedded content, but there are some YouTube video demos in the Q Up Arts Corner. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We do not use any kind of analytics service, so no data is passed to anyone for this purpose.

Who we share your data with

When you pay, payment is handled by PayPal, so your details are shared with them. They have a very robust privacy policy which you can read here. See also “where we send your data”, below.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. If for some reason you want us to delete your data permanently, just Contact Us and let us know.

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 are checked through an automated spam detection service called Akismet, whose terms and conditions you can read here. When you check out, your transaction is handled by PayPal, whose terms and conditions you can read here. If you sign up for the newsletter at checkout, your details are sent to MailChimp (you can read about MailChimp’s privacy policy here, and their terms and conditions here.) Beyond that, we don’t send your data to anyone at all.

Contact information

If you have any queries or concerns about our privacy measures, drop us a line at the usual address or via the Contact Us page.
