If you do not enter your information into any forms, we cannot and will not store any of your personal data. We operate on a ‘data minimisation’ system at all times. We aspire to comply to the fullest extent possible with applicable data protection regulations, in particular the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) and ePrivacy Directive, where applicable.

We may use affiliate links to external websites where if used by the reader to purchase a service, product, accommodation, or any other item, we will receive a monetary reward at no extra cost to the purchaser.
