Welcome to the Britlists.com Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy was last updated on 20/07/2021.

Who we are

Our website address is: http://www.britlists.com. We are a family run website who love what we do and we completely respect your right to privacy and do everything we can to protect that.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect certain personal information about visitors and users of our website.

The most common things we may collect include things like: usernames, member names, email addresses, IP addresses, survey responses, comments (where applicable), web and analytics data, and any information you provide to us in email or content you submit to the site.


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.

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. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

If you visit our login page, 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

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

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

·  our professional advisers (lawyers, accountants, financial advisers etc.) in the UK;

·  regulators and government authorities in connection with our compliance procedures and obligations;

·  a purchaser or prospective purchaser of all or part of our assets or our business, and their professional advisers, in connection with the purchase;

·  a third party to respond to requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity;

·  a third party, in order to enforce or defend our rights, or to address financial or reputational risks;

·  other recipients where we are authorised or required by law, or requests by government, a court of law, or law enforcement authorities, to do so.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

We store personal information on secure servers that are managed by us and/or our service providers.
