What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


Our website uses cookies, like most websites on the Internet. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from a website and stored on your computer or mobile phone by the web browser. Cookies are used to provide a reliable mechanism allowing websites to remember information. Cookies are often used for site navigation and to improve user experience. There are two types of cookies that our website uses – first-party cookies and third-party cookies.

We use the following first-party cookies on this website.

None of these first-party cookies contain personally identifiable information and these cookies are considered essential cookies for the website to function properly.

Third-Party Cookies

We use third-party advertising partners that use cookies to serve advertisements on our website. These cookies are used to inform our advertising partners if an advertisement has been served to the same computer before, and if so, when the advertisement was served. These cookies are used to ensure that the advertisements you see are both relevant and appropriate.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

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


Our web hosting platform collects anonymous analytics data about which pages you visited and for how long. It will also record which browser you used and the machine type you used to access the website. We also use Google Analytics to help us improve our website and tell us which pages you have visited and for how long.

How we protect your data

OracleHome is a secure website using https as encryption. We have security measures including two-factor authentication; and measures such as staff training in data protection.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal data with anyone else. We do work with affiliate marketing companies in order to raise funds from any banners or product links you click on. This helps us to keep the website funded and going. We are an Amazon affiliate. The owner of this website, OracleHome, is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking www.oraclehome.co.uk to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.co.uk

How long we retain your data

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

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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 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 have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

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