Who we are
Please contact our Data Protection Officer if you have any questions (details at bottom of page).
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When a user subscribes to our mailing list via the Sites we collect the user’s name and email address. This information is shared with the MailChimp marketing automation platform for the purposes of delivering news, articles and information via email newsletters.
Users can opt-out or manage subscriptions to email newsletters at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ or ‘update preferences’ links in a previously emailed newsletter.
User account and profile
When a user registers an account and profile on the Sites we collect the data shown in the form. This may include the user’s name, email, company name, country, website and biography, and is used to approve and create the user’s account and profile. Users may edit or delete their account and/or profile at any time.
When users leave comments or replies on the Sites we collect the data shown in the comments or discussion form including the user’s name and email address, and also the user’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
When a user downloads a digital file (e.g. a plugin or precoded clip) from the Sites we collect the user’s name (if registered and logged in) and the user’s IP address for the purpose of tracking.
Contact and support forms
When a user submits an application, contact, support or other form on the Sites we collect the data shown in the respective form including the user’s name and email address for the purposes of action and reply.
Cookies are small pieces of data sent from the Sites or a third-party website to the user’s computer via their browser to collect and store data and/or to improve the user’s browsing experience.
Necessary cookies are required for the website to function correctly and include the following:
If you leave a comment on the Sites, 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 the Sites, 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. 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.
When a user closes the mailing list subscriber pop-up on the Sites, our marketing automation platform (MailChimp) adds a cookie to prevent the pop-up appearing again. This cookie will last for one year.
When a user downloads a digital file (e.g. a plugin or precoded clip) from the Sites, cookies may be added by our download facility (WordPress Download Manager) for the purpose of tracking package/download data.
Optional cookies do not directly affect the website’s functionality and include those added for social sharing and web analytics.
Our social sharing service (ShareThis) uses a cookie to count clicks/shares of a page. No personal information is stored in the cookie.
The StatCounter service cookies policy is available here: https://statcounter.com/about/cookies/
EU Countries & GDPR
A user located in the European Union (EU) can manage cookies at any time via the ‘Cookies’ tab in the bottom right hand corner of their browser window.
Embedded content from other websites
When a user visits the ClipBank library, we track items they have viewed for the purpose of showing recently viewed items.
Analytics & Spam Protection

Data including the user’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URLs (along with other information such as their name, username and email address) may be shared with our anti-spam service (Akismet) for the purpose of spam detection.
