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.
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.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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.
Google analytics helps me to track where the website visitors come from and which pages on the website are most popular. This helps me to make improvements.
Who we share your data with
I don’t share your email data with anyone, ever.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.
You can email me via firstname.lastname@example.org
Adverts and Affiliate policy
I don’t write posts just to stick affiliate links into them. I write what I really believe passionately in and if an affiliate link is closely related to the subject then I’ll put one in the article.
Read my full affiliate policy here.
I occasionally use ad software which I don’t have control over what ads get shown to a particular user that will be based on what they think will best serve you.
This website looks on the face of it to be a “gambling” related website though I don’t really see poker, which has a skill element to it, as gambling in the way games of pure chance are like casino house games like roulette, blackjack and slot machines.
Matched betting when done properly has no real risk to it, however sports trading on a betting exchange isn’t risk free.
I appreciate that problem gamblers do exist so I would strongly urge you not to take up betfair Trading if you have problems with gambling.
Please check out the Gamble aware website to seek help.
