I am Tim Hodgson. There’s just me. I write stuff, and teach workshops, and run events, and try and find ways to make people’s lives a little bit better. That’s all I do, and to help communicate what I do I run this web site and blog. I want you to know that I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to our web site. In particular, I want you to know that I simply do not sell, rent, share or trade email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. That’s not what you want, and it’s not what I want. So that should put your mind at rest.

Detailed stuff

Just to be clear, though, in this Privacy Policy we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure. Make yourself a cup of coffee. Or tea. And take a look.

A few words about cookies

We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

About our email lists

To keep you informed about what’s happening we send out a regularish newsletter. As part of the registration process for we collect personal information – basically, your name and email address. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied.

We simply don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. Ever.

You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing us at contact@timhodgson.org
