If you ask to be notified of blog updates  (i.e. if you “subscribe” to this site) and you provide your email address for that purpose, Peter will retain your email address for future communications. You may unsubscribe to this site at any time using the Subscribe/Unsubscribe page. Peter will then delete your email address from the blog records.

Embedded content from other websites

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