Privacy policy.

My business (Eleanor Snare) is operated independently by me as a self-employed sole trader. You’ve given me your personal data (such as an email address) in exchange for receiving regular and relevant communications from me, and I value that exchange. I keep that data safe through using secure and trusted service providers such as Mailchimp. This privacy policy explains all this in more detail.

I do not share personal information with third-parties nor do I store information I collect about your visit to this blog for use other than to analyse content performance through using cookies.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. There are three persistent cookies present on my site (_ga, _gat and _gid) which are Google Analytics cookies. These are used to track users as they navigate the website, and helps me improve the website’s usability. You can turn off cookies at any time using your website browser’s settings.

When someone visits my website I use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

As part of the registration process for my online newsletter, I collect personal information such as name and email address. I use that information to tell you about stuff you’ve asked me to tell you about; to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; to check my records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. I don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

I use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver my newsletter. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my email newsletters.

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that I hold. Email your request to me, Eleanor Snare, at
