Privacy & Cookies Policy – This Demanding Life

Welcome to This Demanding Life which is a trading name for me, Holly Christie.

Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites.

How I use cookies

I only use cookies as strictly necessary in the operation of my website to collect anonymous data via Google analytics on how visitors use our website (such as numbers, where from, time spent, pages viewed, visitor returns) – so that we can improve the site and allow you to share pages with others on social media.

By using my website, you are consenting to this use. If you do not consent, you must disable cookies in your browser, but this may stop the website from functioning properly on your device. Google have an add on to their browser to help you control which cookies you are happy with and which you’d like to disable. You can download this plugin by clicking here

I try to use as few data collection plugins as possible but there are some which I use to help me to determine who is using my website and how I can use the website to serve people well.

These plugins include Jetpack – you may have noticed their cookies policy when you first clicked on the site. If you missed it, you can view it by clicking this link.

I also use Google Analytics – this tells me how my website is performing on search engines, which pages people spend the most time on, how they have found This Demanding Life and the rough demographic information of my audience (age, gender etc). You can view Google’s Privacy Policy by clicking this link.

You will notice that I have a mailing list which you’re welcome to sign up to. To be honest I can be a tad sporadic with sending out emails which tend to be in newsletter format or notification of a new blog post. I use Mailchimp as my email list manager. Your email information is not shared with any third party. Only Mailchimp and I see it. You can view their privacy policy by clicking here. You can opt out of my mailing list at anytime via the unsubscribe link in the footer of the emails.

If you contact me via the contact form on my website, in doing so, you are consenting for me to respond to your enquiry via email. Contacting me via my contact form will not add you to my mailing list and I will not contact you via email for anything other than your enquiry.

Where the law so requires it, I will share your data with the government or legal authority, by acting in good faith in alignment with what the law requires of me.  This may include personal data, business data, and financial information.
