Privacy Policy

WordPress Web Hosting is published and owned by Keith Taylor, under the Shrewdies brand. This privacy policy applies to all Keith Taylor’s sites.

My overriding policy is to protect every visitors privacy. Data is only collected to allow proper usage of my websites, and I never share information with third parties.

As of 2012, I have centralized my privacy policy here for all my websites to avoid the pitfalls of updating several websites.


My Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about my practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that you may provide via this website. Whenever you use this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Ways that I collect information

Some areas of the site require you to actively submit information in order for you to benefit from specific features (such as my range of on-line services). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

Some of this information may be personal (information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, email address, phone number etc.).

I only collect such information when you choose to supply it to me.

Information is also gathered without you actively providing it, through the use of various technologies and methods such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and cookies. These methods do not collect or store personal information.

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you can access the Internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer).

I use your IP address to diagnose problems with my server, report aggregate information, and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to my site, and to administer and improve the site.


A cookie is a piece of data stored locally on your computer and contains information about your activities on the Internet. On My website, I use cookies to track users’ progress through the site, allowing me to make improvements based on usage data. The information in a cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information you submit to my site.

Once you close your browser, my access to the cookie terminates. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose not to accept the cookie, this will not affect your access to the majority of information available on my website. However, you will not be able to make full use of my on-line services.

Let me know if you need any more information about cookies or how to decline them.

Web Statistics

I use log files generated by my web servers to analyze site usage and statistics but the files do not identify any personal information. Log file analysis helps me to understand usage patterns on my website and to make improvements to my service.


Except as otherwise stated, I may use information you provide via this site to improve the content, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for internal marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

I do not disclose any information you provide via the site to any third parties except where:

* Such disclosures are necessary to fulfill my service obligations to you in which case I will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
* Required by applicable laws, courts orders, or government regulations (for example to prevent or detect crime).
* You give me permission to do so.

Access to and correction of personal information

I will take all reasonable steps in accordance with my legal obligations to update or correct personally identifiable information in my possession that you submit via this site.

You have a right to ask to see details of any personal information that I hold about you. If you wish to do so, my contact details are always current at . You can also verify my contact details at the public whois record for any of my websites, but note that I may only update this at renewal date, or during my annual check.

Links to other websites

This website contains links and references to other websites. Please be aware that this Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites and I encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every website you visit.

With respect to Ad Servers: To try and bring you offers that are of interest to you, I have relationships with other companies that I allow to place ads on my Web pages. As a result of your visit to my site, ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information. For further information, consult the privacy policies of:

Notification of changes to my Privacy Policy

I will post details of any changes to my Privacy Policy on the website to help ensure you are always aware of the information I collect, how I use it, and in what circumstances, if any, I share it with other parties.
