Why I value your privacy
I value your privacy as much as I do my own, so I'm committed to keeping your personal and business information safe. I'm uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so I ask for only the bare minimum from my website customers. I’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and I’ll never give anyone access to it unless I'm forced to by law.
How I collect information
I ask for contact information including your name and email address on this website so that I can reply to your enquiry.
What information I hold

What I use your information for
The information supplied is used to contact you in relation to the query you included in your original communication to me.
Who’s responsible for your information
Richard Reddy, is responsible for the security of your information. You can contact me by email using my contact form if you have any concerns about the information I'm storing.
Who has access to information about you
As this is a personal blog, I'm the only person who has access to the information supplied by you. This information is not passed onto any other party.
The steps I take to keep your information private
Any information supplied to me will be kept on my Outlook email program for 6months. During this time, your information will not be supplied to another third party. After this time the information will be automatically deleted.
