Dales Antiques Privacy Policy

Who We Are

Welcome to Dales Antiques. Our digital presence can be found at: https://dalesantiques.co.uk


When you share your thoughts through comments on our website, we collect the information you enter in the comments form, along with your IP address and browser user agent string. This helps us in detecting and preventing spam.

Should you use an email address to comment, it may be converted into an anonymized string (or “hash”) and sent to the Gravatar service to verify if you’re using it. You can review the Gravatar service privacy policy here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Upon your comment’s approval, your profile image will be publicly displayed alongside your comment.


If you upload images to our site, please refrain from including location data (EXIF GPS) within them. Website visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the site.


Leaving a comment on our site may prompt you to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, sparing you from re-entering your details for each new comment. These cookies last one year.

Visiting our login page triggers a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies, containing no personal data and discarded once you close your browser.

Logging in sets cookies to remember your login details and screen display choices, lasting two days for login cookies and one year for screen options cookies. Selecting “Remember Me” keeps you logged in for two weeks, or until you log out, at which point these cookies are removed.

Editing or publishing an article places an additional cookie in your browser, holding no personal data apart from the edited article’s ID, expiring after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on our site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Such content from other sites behaves exactly as if you visited the originating website directly.

These sites may collect data about you, employ cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data Sharing

Should you initiate a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Data Retention

Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely to automatically recognize and approve follow-up comments. For registered users (if any), we also store the personal details they provide in their user profile. Users can always view, edit, or delete their personal information (username changes not permitted). Website administrators can view and edit that information as well.

Your Data Rights

If you have an account or have left comments on our site, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you’ve provided to us. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we have about you, excluding data we’re mandated to keep for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Data Processing

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