Privacy Policy

Who I am

I’m Vicki. I write words. I tell jokes (I do tricks, with my fellow candlesticks). I incite women to riot. My website address is: and you are here.


If you leave a comment on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection, because no one likes spammers.

Not to worry, it’s an anonymised string created from your email address (also known as a hash) which 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. Don’t worry, you look amazing.


If you upload images to my website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the website, apparently, which is information that I did not know until today (thank you tech bod).

Also, please don’t upload images to my website, I don’t want them.


If you leave a comment on my site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so that you don’t have to fill your details in again if you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year, but I won’t eat them. Ever.

Embedded content from other websites

Some of the content on my website may include embedded content (videos, images, articles etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way, as if you have visited the other website.

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

Who I share your data with

No one. You can trust me, boo.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically, instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

You can delete your comments at any time, but please don’t, I really like engagement and/or making friends.

However, I can delete your comments if I want to.

What rights you have over your data

If you’ve left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data the site would hold about you, including any data you’ve provided. You can also request that I erase any personal data I would hold about you.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, and I might send my mam a link on occasion if what you say to me is particularly pleasant/complimentary. Otherwise that’s it.
