In the Coalition we’re very fussy about personal privacy. Like REALLY fussy. Bordering on paranoid. So we’re similarly careful with any of your information.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you send us an email via our Contact form, we retain that message and the personal information you’ve included in our email account, so that we can reply to you if needs be.
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.
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.
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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments on our site, 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. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.
