Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

The Interior Editor is a personal blog owned and operated by Maria Jones. By using this site, you are indicating your agreement to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you disagree with any of the terms below, please avoid using this site.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Your privacy is important to me and will ensure that any information that is obtained via subscribing to The Interior Editor blog is only used for informing you of new posts. All information that is obtained from you will continue to be processed nd transferred in compliance with all applicable Data Protection Laws and Regulations (GDPR).


When visitors leave comments on the site I 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 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. 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.

Contact forms

The Interior Editor sends out 1-2 newsletters a week to anyone that subscribes to the site. This newsletter only contains excerpts and an image of the blog post in question that has been published.

Mailchimp is the email marketing service used by The Interior Editor to send out to those that have subscribed to the weekly newsletter. In order to send the newsletter, we collect User’s first name, last name and email address. This information is not shared with any other company.

We provide you with an easy method of unsubscribing to this newsletter or you can manage your preference at any time.

If you subscribed to my weekly newsletters before the 25th May 2018, you will continue to receive it. I have and will continue to provide you with an opportunity to unsubscribe with each newsletter sent by The Interior Editor.


If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to save 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 this site, I 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

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

I do not share your data with any other company.

How long we retain your data

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

For users that register on my website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their 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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. T

Where we send your data

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

Personal data is processed and stored for as long as Users consent to its processing.

Users have the right to withdraw consent where they have previously given their consent to the processing of their Personal Data.
