Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy: Plain English Explanation,
By Roy The Gardener.


Hello there! I’m Roy, your local gardener, and I want to explain how I handle your privacy when you interact with my website.

First off, let’s clear the air: I don’t mess with your financial info. I’m not interested in it, I don’t collect it, and I certainly don’t store it. Your money stuff is your business, plain and simple.

Same goes for your email addresses. I don’t store them, save them, or do anything dodgy with them. Now, if you send me an enquiry through the website, sure, I’ll see your email address. But once I’ve replied or dealt with your enquiry, that’s it – your info doesn’t hang around on my site.

I’m not into automatic email marketing shenanigans either. You won’t find me selling email lists to other companies or bombarding your inbox with stuff you didn’t ask for. Nope, not my style.

Now, here’s the lowdown: I do keep a record of some emails and phone numbers from my customers – both old and new. Why? Well, sometimes I like to send out special offers or let you know about new services. Plus, if I’ve got some free slots for gardening work, I might drop you a line to see if you’re interested.

But here’s the deal: I’m not about spamming you. Your inbox won’t be flooded with annoying messages from me. I value your privacy just as much as I value my own – and that’s a lot!

So, there you have it – a straightforward rundown of how I handle privacy on my website. If you’ve got any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out. I’m here to help.

Best Regards, Roy



Privacy Policy: Who we are:

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and 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 anonymised 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


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.

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.


Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we 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), 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.

Where we send your data

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



Privacy Policy: Plain English Version, Part Two.


Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I know, I know – this whole privacy policy thing can seem like a real snooze fest. But hey, it’s important stuff, even for a small website like mine.

So, here’s the deal: this privacy policy might sound a bit generic, but it’s gotta be here. Trust me, I’ll keep it short and sweet.

Now, my website isn’t exactly a bustling online community. There’s no place for you to leave comments, nothing to log into, and definitely nothing for you to upload. It’s just a simple little site, doing its thing.

But even though we’re keeping it basic, I still gotta cover all the bases. That means talking about stuff like cookies and data collection – even if it doesn’t really apply here.

But here’s the good news: I’m not out to sneakily gather info on you. I’m not tracking your every move or harvesting your data for who knows what. Nope, not my style.

So, while this privacy policy might seem like a formality, it’s all about being transparent and upfront with you. If you’ve got any questions or concerns, just give me a shout. I’m here to help – and to keep things nice and simple.

Roy The Gardener.
