Privacy Policy

I’m Clare Jayne and I own this website and run an e-mail newsletter. In line with the new data protection regulation (GDPR) I wanted to let you know you about the data stored by my website and mailing list provider.


My website,, collects non-identifiable information, such as the number of visitors each day, for the purpose of letting me understand how people use my site and what posts are the most popular.

People can choose to leave comments about posts, providing such information as their e-mail address, name and website. E-mail addresses are never shown but the person’s name and website, if they choose to list one, will be shared on the website with their comments.

If I run a giveaway, people may choose to enter it and provide information such as their name and e-mail address. This will be used only for the official purpose of the giveaway.

My website also uses cookies, which track visitors. People who don’t want cookies put on their computers can set their browsers to refuse cookies, but this means that some features of the site may not work properly.

None of the data listed above will be shared by me to anyone else unless ordered to do so by government request or court order.


My e-mail newsletter is sent using Mailchimp.

Subscribers may amend their personal data or unsubscribe at any time using the links at the bottom of each newsletter e-mail. This will not delete the data stored so, if you wish your personal data to be deleted, or have any questions contact me at
