Privacy Policy

My website address is:

What personal data I collect and why I collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site I 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 anonymised string created from your e-mail 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

Unless explicitly stated on the form itself, you do not need to register to use contact forms. When your contact details are collected on a contact form, they are only used for the purpose stated on the form. Details collected for one purpose (for example to download a pdf file) are not used for another (for example, to add your details to a newsletter mailing list).

I collect your first name, last name and your email address so that I can correspond with you.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, e-mail 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 have an account and you log in to this site, I 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, I 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.

More detailed information about my cookie policy and the cookies used by this website can be found in the cookie policy.

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.


I use Google Analytics to track visitors on this site. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect this data. In order to be compliant with the new regulation Google included a data processing amendment. The data I collect will be processed anonymously and “Data Sharing” is disabled. I don’t use other Google services in combination with Google Analytics cookies.

Who I share your data with

At present, your data is not shared with anyone for any purpose. This policy will be updated to reflect any changes as and when they occur.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), I 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 - if at any time such should be appointed - will also be able to see and edit that information. Currently, there are no website administrators for this website.

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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I 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.

You can view, update, download or delete your personal data at any time from this page

Where I send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

I only use any contact information for the purpose for which it is collected. For example, if I collect your email address in order to send you a weekly newsletter, then I will only use it for that reason.

Additional information

How I protect your data

I do not share your data with any third parties without your permission, although the essential services that I use - for example, my mailing list service provider - may have access to it. I only choose service providers that comply with all appropriate legislation and which take steps to ensure customer privacy themselves.

I do not store additional copies of any of your data beyond this.

I take steps any additional steps recommended by my service providers to protect your data with respect to their services.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If you suspect that your data has been breached through this website, please contact me immediately at I take breaches very seriously and we promise to investigate any suspected breaches immediately.

What third parties I receive data from

Currently, I do not receive any data through third parties. I will update this privacy policy if the situation changes.

What automated decision making and/or profiling I do with user data

I currently do no automated decision making or profiling with user data. I will update this privacy policy if the situation changes.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Not applicable.

Changes to this privacy policy

I reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting to the website. If I make material changes to this policy, I will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information I collect, how I use it, and under what circumstances, if any, I use and/or disclose it.

Me biting a medal
A few years ago, I got scared that I won't be able to tie my own shoelaces when I’m 70, so I started to work on my fitness.

All the advice I found made me feel I was on the outside looking in. I needed something a lot more me-centric.

Now I feel I have more control and hope for the future.

I’m sharing what I’ve learned so that you can star in your own fitness story.
