How I may gather your personal data

I primarily use the legal basis of consent for processing personal data that you supply to me and therefore I only receive such data after you have given your consent. I may also process data under the legal basis of legitimate interest, such as to ensure the security of the sites and services I run.

The routes via which I may gather your personal data include via:

  • Sign-up forms, comment submission forms, buttons or surveys, both offline and online,
  • When you visit a digital website or service I am operating,
  • If you make a donation or other payment to me, and
  • Cookies placed on your device(s) and tracking pixels.

This gathering of data includes both data you directly supply, such as by filling out a form, and also data provided when you interact with one of the services I operate digitally, such as the IP address, browser type and operating system of the device used.

The data gathered via surveys and forms may include special category data, such as whether or not you are a member of the Liberal Democrats. Such data may also come from you posting a comment in which you choose to reveal such information, e.g. “As a member of the Liberal Democrats, I disagree with your claim that…”
