Who I am

I am a sole trader and therefore for the purposes of Data Protection legislation, Graham Malkan is the Data Controller for any data that is held in relation to you. This means that I am responsible for any personal data held about you.

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 anonymized 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.

Cookies and 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. 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.

If you choose to use a contact form then your information is held for as long as it is required for the purposes that you have provided it for.

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.

Who I share your data with

I will not share information about you with third parties without your consent unless the law allows me to do so.

I may share your information with my accountants should I undertake work on your behalf (

Clenshaw Minns Chartered Accountants, Innovation Centre, Innovation Drive, Kings Lynn PE30 5BY

Further information on their data protection can obtained by contacting them on:  .

How long I retain your data

I only keep your information for as long as I need it or for as long as I are required by law to keep it.  In most cases if I have undertaken work for you this will be for 6 years to ensure that accurate financial records are kept in line with statutory requirements.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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 can also see and edit that information.

I may make use of your personal data (such as contact details) to keep in touch with you on future work, but only where consent has been provided to do this.

What rights you have over your data

You have the right to:

  • Ask for access to your personal information
  • Ask for rectification of the information I hold about you
  • Ask for the erasure of information about you
  • Ask for our processing of your personal information to be restricted
  • Data portability
  • Object to us processing your information.

If you want to use your rights, for example, by requesting a copy of the information which I hold about you, please contact me on

Where I send your data
