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. This data is held for the lifespan of the site.

Your contact information


If you have subscribed to this blog to receive email notifications of new  posts your email is  in a list of subscribers until such a time as you unsubscribe or this blog is discontinued.  Every email notification sent out will contain the option to un-subscribe should you wish to do so. Your name and email will be deleted on un-subscribing. The subscription list can only be seen by this website admin and it is not used for marketing purposes.  At such time as the Sew VeraVenus blog is discontinued all subscriber information will be immediately deleted.

Contact forms

When visitors use the site’s  Contact Form or submit a Pattern Order form the visitor’s IP address and email is stored on my site indefinitely. No one but the site admin has access to this information. This information is not shared with anyone else and it will only be used in the event your contact with me requires a direct response, for example answering a sewing question you may have asked or in filling the pattern order. The information submitted through the  form is not used for marketing purposes either by this blog or passed on to any third party for such purposes.


When a visitor arrives at the site and agrees to accept cookies the metadata is saved in cookies. These cookies will last for one year.

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.  If you purchase a VeraVenus pattern payments are solely handled by PayPal. This website does not process or hold any payment or personal financial data from pattern purchasers. Paypal’s data protection policy can be viewed here:

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.

If you use the Contact form or a Pattern Purchase form the content of the form, your email and IP addresses are held indefinitely for administrative purposes.

This data is held for the lifespan of the site and will be permanently deleted upon the shutdown of the site.


By default, WordPress does not collect any analytics data. This website does not use any third party plugins which collect data for analytic purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments are checked by an automated spam detection service which is triggered by certain words and known spammer email addresses. If a comment is marked as spam the vast majority are automatically deleted and are never seen by the website administrator. A very few are held for moderation by the administrator who either approves them if wrongly marked as spam or manually deletes them.
