Privacy Policy

We are currently redrafting our privacy policy. However, below are the main ideas that we will be keeping inline with.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When people access this website or use any of the services on it small amounts of data will be collected that may identify you later. We do not collect this data to sell. We also do not collect this data to share with a third party unless it relates to one of our services (eg skeda for room booking or the tool library booking). If we are requested by law to provide information about users and the use of the website do everything in our power to ensure that we are giving over only that information that is necessary.


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 and moderate the site for hateful behaviour.


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

Our contact forms are linked to Action Network. Whilst we share that data actionnetwork recognises our authority over the data collected. you can find our more about them here


As with all wesbites collects cookies, small text based files, to improve the access speed and browser performance. These include pages access, indentifiers and some details from from entries. If you are concerned about your privacy consider using private or incognito browsing and using a VPN.

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.

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

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). 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.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.

What rights you have over your data

You have the right to disappear and we will do our best to faciliate this when asked. 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.
