Rik Barwick Privacy Policy & Cookies

We are all worried about our online privacy these days so I thought I should probably say something about your privacy when using this site

Your email address

There are a few reasons why you might choose to give me your email address.

  • You may purchase something from the site.
  • You subscribe to my newsletter.
  • You post a comment on this blog.
  • In each case your email address is stored securely although not always on my server. Newsletter subscriptions are held on MailChimp. Contact Forms are saved to this site’s database. For information on their privacy policies please visit their respective websites.

That said I can promise you that we will never share your email address with anybody outside these suppliers.

If at any point you wish your email address removed from any of these systems just drop me an email at rik@rikbarwick.co.uk.


I use cookies on my website to track user activity on the site and to enable various types of functionality. While we will endeavour to keep the list below updated, my site relies on many third party services and the list may therefore become out of date if those services alter the cookies they use.
