What information do we collect on the website?


Should you send us an email via the contact form below, your name, email address and the message will be emailed to us (as you would expect). This information is kept private. We will store this information within our own email system so that we are able to respond to you.

Should you comment on a blog post or web page on this site, then your name, email address, IP address and the message will be stored in our website database (as you would expect). This makes your name, website address and comment (but not your email address) viewable by the general public on the website.

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

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.

Visitor comments may be checked through a third-party automated spam detection service.

The Forum

We run a public forum on the website. It is your responsibility only to share information that you feel comfortable sharing, and are legally allowed to share. Your posts are public and can be seen by anyone visiting the site, though your email address is kept private. 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 log in

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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.


The Shop

If you order from our shop then your name, email address, IP address and physical address will be stored in our database (as you would expect). This information will not be made public and is only passed to those trusted partners who deal with your order. To deal with your purchase, we email you specific information about the progress of the order. Your details will not be used for any other purpose unless requested by you.



The website does use some cookies when you browse this website. These are used to ensure proper running of this website, for third-party advertising and also to help us improve your experience when browsing.

If you don’t know what cookies are or if you would like to find out more, please search online for further information.


The cookies we use are detailed below:

Third party cookie collection is collected by the respective organisations and businesses who provide those services. To the best of our knowledge, these companies also comply with data holding laws. We cannot be held responsible for third-party actions.

Third Party Data

We use a number of third-party services to provide information about the demographics of our site visitors, as well as information from other third parties, including advertisers. This information is general in nature and does not identify you as an individual. It is all entirely anonymous.

How your information is used

If you have chosen to share personal information with us, we use your email address to contact you in reply to your message, to deal with your order, or to send you our newsletter. If you have entered your email address to leave a comment on the blog, it is used to identify your comment, however, it is not displayed on the website or shared with any third party.

We may also use your email to help resolve issues or disputes, for example, if you tell us that you cannot see any of your posts on the website, we would probably search our database using your email address to help diagnose the problem.

Additionally, we use your information if you browse or make purchases on our store, to enable the shopping cart to keep track of your shopping basket, and to allow us to process your orders.

We host third-party advertising on our website. We do not share any personal information directly with these third-parties, but they may use cookies as per their own terms.

Our disclosure of your information

We do not share your personal information or email address with third parties other than to deal with your wishes such as a purchase from the shop. If your details are shared with a vendor to fulfil your order, we have vetted those vendors and are confident that they are keeping your data safe and secure.

Email opt-out

Just like you, we hate spam. We do not send you spam emails.

You may opt-out of our emails at any time. An ‘unsubscribe’ link is included in all of our email newsletters. Alternatively, you can email us or use our contact form and we will unsubscribe you, though this will take longer than you unsubscribing yourself.

Protection of your information

TheAnneBoleynFiles uses its best endeavour to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, such as the use of SSL when you connect to our site to protect the information as it travels across the Internet. It is important to be aware that there is no such thing as “perfect internet security”, but we keep our website and server updated to the latest versions of software, have regular security scans and act on any advise from web experts. All payment processing is done through a secure third party and we never get to see your card details or any other method you use to pay.

How to correct inaccurate information or remove your data from our systems

If you have an account on this site, have made a purchase, emailed us directly 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.

If you would like to have this information removed please contact us and we will do this for you as soon as it is possible. Your data will be removed from our live server but we note that there may be instances of your data in our secured and encrypted backup files. These will not be shared with others and are kept separate from our server. They will never be shared with a third party.

How to contact us

Please use the contact form on this site to contact us.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

From time to time we may update this Privacy Policy in line with website changes that may affect the personal information we gather about you. It is assumed that you accept such changes if you continue to use the site and services. If you do not accept such changes then you should stop using TheAnneBoleynFiles website and services, and contact us (details above) if you would like any information removed.

Last Updated 18 May 2018 (added SSL information, shop details, third party requirements, payment processing, GDPR requirements)
