Who we are

Our website address is https://sqauk.com.


Whenever someone leaves a comment on our website, we collect the information they provide in the comment form, along with their username and browser user agent string. This helps us to identify and prevent spam. 

To check if you are using Gravatar, we may provide an anonymized string created from your email address (also known as a hash) to the Gravatar service. If your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public next to your comment. You can view Gravatar’s privacy policy at https://automattic.com/privacy/

Please note that we do not allow harassment, threats, or hate speech in the comments section.


If you leave a comment on our website, you can allow us to save your name, email address, and website information in cookies. These cookies are solely for your convenience, so you won’t have to enter your details again when you comment. These cookies are valid for one year.

If you visit our login page, a temporary cookie will be set to check if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

Our system will create multiple cookies to save your login details and screen display preferences upon logging in. The login cookies are valid for two days, whereas the screen options cookies will stay active for a year. If you choose to “remember” your login, it will remain valid for two weeks. If you decide to log out, the login cookies will be deleted from our system.

If you edit or publish an article on this website, a cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not contain personal data; it simply indicates the post ID of the article you edited. The cookie will expire after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Embedded content from other websites is embedded and behaves like the visitor has visited another website.

Some websites may gather your information, utilize cookies, incorporate additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interactions with embedded content. This could include tracking your activity with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who do we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We store the personal information provided by users who register on our website (if any) in their user profiles. 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.

What rights do you have over your data?

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you provided. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we must keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where is your data sent?

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