Our approach to your data, privacy and transparency
We do not practise or endorse surveillance capitalism, i.e. the tracking of website visitors across the web, and the sharing of user data with other apps so as to predict your behaviour and sell you stuff. We will never share or sell any data you supply to us, whether it’s supplied knowingly or unknowingly. We use your data only to optimise our platform, to improve your experience with us, and to help stop climate change.
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.
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 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
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.
Who we share your data with
We use HubSpot as our CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software, so data you supply to us on forms is stored securely by them.
We use Shopify as our secure retail and account management software, so data you supply when making a purchase is stored securely by them.
We use Google form, email and analytics software. Data supplied by you on Google forms and in email is stored securely by Google. Cookies enabled by Google Analytics are used to supply us with data on website usage.
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.
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 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 are checked through an automated spam detection service.

Data Breach Response Plan for Tao Climate Limited
A data breach can have serious consequences for both customers and the reputation of Tao Climate Limited. This Data Breach Response Plan outlines the steps we will take in the event of a breach of personal data stored in our Hubspot CRM.
Step 1: Detection and Containment
- In the event of a data breach, our first priority is to detect and contain the breach as quickly as possible.
- To do this, we will monitor our systems and networks for any unusual activity, and investigate any reports of a breach.
- Once the breach has been contained, we will assess the extent of the breach and determine the types of data that have been impacted.
Step 2: Notification and Communication
- If the breach involves personal data, we will promptly notify affected individuals and relevant authorities as required by law.
- We will also provide regular updates to affected individuals and relevant authorities on the status of the breach and any actions we are taking to mitigate its impact.
Step 3: Root Cause Analysis
- Once the breach has been contained, we will conduct a root cause analysis to determine the cause of the breach and identify any weaknesses in our security measures.
- This analysis will inform any changes we make to our security measures to prevent similar breaches in the future.
Step 4: Data Recovery
- If the breach has resulted in the loss or theft of personal data, we will take steps to recover the data, if possible.
- If recovery is not possible, we will work with affected individuals and relevant authorities to determine the best course of action.
Step 5: Review and Improvement
- After the breach has been fully resolved, we will conduct a thorough review of our Data Breach Response Plan and make any necessary improvements.
- This will help to ensure that we are better prepared for future breaches and that we can respond more effectively.
A data breach is a serious matter, and we are committed to responding quickly and effectively in the event of a breach of personal data stored in our Hubspot CRM. By implementing this Data Breach Response Plan, we aim to minimise the impact of a breach and protect the privacy and security of our customers and their data.
