The data we collect & why we collect it


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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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

When you make contact with PFQM, your information is submitted to our team, and is typically retained in our systems. Your computer and web browser will send some metadata with your enquiry – some of this is stored, primarily for fraud prevention purposes.

Cookies (inedible)

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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Visitor analytics (ie. Google Analytics)

We employ services such as Google Analytics to assist us with understanding how people are viewing and interacting with our website, in order to help us make more informed marketing decisions. Data sent to third parties, according to them, is anonymised – we can’t correlate analytics back to you as an individual.

Other information that you should know

Who we share your data with

Your data is not shared with third parties except for the purposes defined within this Privacy Policy. While this is unlikely to change, please visit this page regularly in-case there are changes to how we handle your data which you may consider inappropriate. We welcome your feedback on this topic.

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

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. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. When ordering, your information may be sent to a fraud analysis platform in order to verify that the likelihood of a fraudulent order is low. You accept that this may occur when you proceed with ordering from PFQM.

Your contact information

Aside from for the purposes explained in this Privacy Policy, your contact information will not be shared with any third parties.

How we protect your data

Our website/s are hosted atop industry-leading web hosting infrastructure, with stringent security and privacy policies in-place to keep your data secure. Our websites don’t accept credit card payments, so there’s no time where we’re in possession of your payment information.
