Whether you browse my site as a guest, or as a registered user I will collect different types of data about you. For example, I use Google Analytics to see how you found my website, to see how long you visit my website, and to determine which pages on my website are the most popular. I will only use this information to try to optimize your visits to my website. (e.g., create more relevant content that I think you may like).
I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any linked external sites, third-party Apps, or your chosen internet browser. However, I promise to do my best to explain to you how I work with third-parties, including search engines.
The information that I collect about you can be classified as either as information that (1.) Directly relates to you (e.g., your name and email address), and (2.) Information that does not directly identify you (e.g., how you browse my website), specifically: your IP address through the placement of cookies; and location data, which might be gained through your IP address or GPS.
It’s important to note that not all cookies are either personally identifiable information or even unique identifiers; but some can be, while others can influence what you see on my website.
Any information that you give me will only be used for the specific purpose of your request: for example if you decided to subscribe to my email list to receive my latest posts direct in your inbox, you will only receive what you asked for – I will not use this information to send you spam, offers, or any third party unsolicited messages – I promise!
Any other information and/or cookies that I collect about you via Google Analytics, or similar services (see list below) will only be used for purposes which I think are necessary for me to provide you with insightful news, and content; collect and log numeric internet addresses to improve the website and monitor website usage; recognize and remember you when you visit my website; identify your interests; keep you updated to any services you have subscribed to; contact you directly or by social media in relation to any prize draws you have entered; make sure content is presented in the most effective way for you and your computer or mobile device; asses and understand your feedback and identify usage hotspot; and, to prevent and deter fraud.
I will only contact you by email; or by phone, post, SKYPE and SMS text if you provide me with your details and specifically request contact via these services.
I will always attempt to explain why and how I might contact you at the point you give me your information.
I also provide you the means to grant or withhold your permission for me to contact you. I do this by using opt-in boxes, consent boxes or unsubscribe options.
Sometimes, I may need to contact you to provide a service that you requested. In such cases, by signing up to the service you are agreeing that I will have to send you service communications to run the service itself, and you may continue to receive such messages until you inform me that you no longer wish to use the services by unsubscribing from the service.
How to access and update your personal information?
You have the right to access the personal information held about you from me, or from any other organization that controls your personal information. To understand how to obtain a copy of the personal information that I hold, please see [Section 13](https://www.telegraph.co.uk/about-us/privacy-and-cookie-policy/#ifwearenotapplyingthisprivacypolicy) below.
I use the following types of cookie, as will your browser:
(1.) Analytics cookies that anonymously remember your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. They keep track of browsing patterns and help me to build up a profile of how my readers use the website. I may use this information for visitor analytics and post advertisements that I think might be of particular interest to you. Your browser may use similar cookies for similar purposes and to serve advertisements for others.
(2.) Service cookies that help me to make my website work as efficiently as possible; remember your registration and login details; remember your settings preferences; and to detect what device you are using and adapt how I present my content according to the screen size of that device.
(3) Third party advertising and analytics cookies, which are placed by or on behalf of independent advertisers who are advertising on our site. These cookies may be placed within the advertisement and elsewhere on my website by us or by your browser. They are anonymous – they cannot be used to identify individuals, but they can also allow the advertiser or your browser to tailor advertising to you when you visit other websites using the same browser. They are used for statistical analysis by allowing the advertiser to count how many people have seen their advertisement or have seen it more than once, to make sure you are not repeatedly served with the same advertising messages.
I have no access to third-party cookies, and third-party organizations have no access to mine. The third party organizations that place cookies, including your browser (such as Google) and the third party companies who pay for advertising and analytics services using this information, will have their own privacy policies.
Most browsers allow you to turn off cookies. To do this look at the “help” menu on your browser. Switching off cookies may restrict your use of the website and/or delay or affect the way in which it operates.
Please note that if you disable cookies, you may still see „none-personalized“ advertisements that may appear materially the same as „personalized“ ones.
I use various third parties to provide me with information to help me learn about how visitors use my website. To find out more about these third-party services click on their names, below, to view their websites and privacy policies.
I take your trust very seriously, and I promise to do my best to protect your privacy, but no data transmission over the Internet can be entirely secure, and therefore I cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and/or use of this website. Any information that you send is at your own risk and may be read by others.
Disclosing your information
I promise that I will not pass on, or sell your personal data to third parties. However, I may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or if in good faith I believe such action is necessary to comply with the law or legal obligation.
The storage and safeguard of your personal information
I will only keep your personal information that I collect from you as long as I need it for a lawful purpose: whether because of the service I have provided you, for example, an email subscription, or because I believe you still wish to hear from me.
