Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: We are a small company that provides a variety of services to the UK LRP/LARP community, including making latex weapons and props, leatherwork, catering, and set design.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We do not, for the most part, collect personal data unless you want to buy a product from our shop or contact us with an enquiry. However, some features of our site do collect certain bits of user data.


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 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.


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.

Contact forms

Information from contact forms is only shared beyond our email inbox with other Skian Mhor employees or helpers if necessary in the case of an enquiry or an order, and is otherwise deleted or archived when no longer needed.

We use contactform7 plugin on our website, and they have a separate privacy policy.


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 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.

If you edit or publish an article (this only applies to Skian Mhor staff and helpers with access to the website), 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. For that reason, any user data communicated by those websites is the responsibility of that website, and not that of Skian Mhor.

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


We are currently in the process of properly configuring our analytics package, and will update this page again when we have done so.

Who we share your data with

Within Skian Mhor, emails come primarily to Sean Maguire’s inbox, which is also accessed and administrated by Jackie Maguire. If we have an order or enquiry for a specific producer within the Skian Mhor base (for example Steve Kingston of Lamia Leather or Andy Rimmer of Offa Studio), then we will pass on the order or enquiry information to them as it has come to us.

When ordering Mhorish meal tickets, your orders will be printed and sent to events, under the responsibility of the Front of House staff to safeguard and use as necessary to ensure you get your meal tickets. When booking Mhorish to cater events, contact information for the event organiser will be passed on to our chef for the event, along with dietary requirement information for those we are catering for. Hard copies of this information are destroyed after the event, though we may keep the emails for future reference.

Our website uses a number of third-party plugins, each of which has its own privacy policy and data-sharing policy. so we will list them here.

  • is part of the network of websites – you will find the full collective privacy policy on the Privacy Page.
  • Contactform7 is unable to guarantee GDPR compliance as so much is dependent on how it is implemented and used.With the default configuration, this plugin, in itself, does not track users by stealth, write any user personal data to the database, send any data to external servers or use cookies. Skian Mhor only collect your name and email address by default, and it is up to you whether you are happy to share any further contact information. We only store this information via email, which is accessed by Sean and Jackie Maguire and only passed on to other Skian Mhor employees/helpers/associates if and when necessary. We are in the process of setting up a tickbox so that we can ask for your consent to store and use this information.

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.

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.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Our website is secure, and we only pass on any information about our customers and users if necessary.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the first instance, upon receiving information about a data breach, we would investigate the nature of the breach in order to find out what happened.

Then we would take action against this happening again, whether by tightening our website security as required, or by ensuring that the person responsible for the breach is no longer in a position where they are responsible for user/customer data.

We would also do our best to ensure that any customers or users affected are informed of the breach, the nature of the breach, and any preventative measures we have taken to prevent this occurring, and advise our customers/users affected if there are any actions that they need to take.

If a breach has any negative effects on the person whose data has been leaked, we will work with those affected to make things right where we can.

What third parties we receive data from

Skian Mhor are not in the habit of buying data from third parties. Besides any data that you give us with your consent, either via our website or any social media-linked plugins that you use, we would not expect to receive any data regarding individual customers via third parties, and we would hold those third parties and social media apps to have gained the data consensually via their own GDPR arrangements.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Besides the decision making and profiling done by third-party apps/plugins and sites that we use (i.e. using Honeypot to stop bots, and Worldpay-based decision making during transactions, we do not do any automated decision-making or profiling. We pride ourselves on being fairly accessible so that you can deal with humans, not machines!
