Privacy Policy

At White Light Media we focus on good tales, well told. For this to work, our clients and their audiences need to be able to trust us, and this is something we take very seriously. The text below should give you a clear understanding of how we handle personal details but please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  


Like most websites, we use cookies. These are small files created on your computer as you browse the web which can then be used by sites and web services to help them operate, gather statistics or store your preferences. In our case, the cookies we set are solely used for monitoring traffic which we do through Google Analytics. This gives us insight into which pages are popular, how visitors move around our website and which activities are successful in bringing us more traffic. We don’t use this service to personally identify visitors of our site. You can use your browser settings to disable cookies if you like – it won’t impact on the way this website operates. 

We are experimenting with a new, more privacy-focussed analytics platform called matmomo as a potential alternative to Google Analytics. To opt out of matomo analytics, see below: 

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

Personal data

If you want to keep up with what we do, you can join our mailing list. As part of the process of registration for this list, we will capture your email address and, if you have volunteered it, your name.  

Our email list is used to send the following information: 

– New blog posts from White Light Media

We use Mailchimp, a third-party service based in the USA, to deliver our newsletters and store your contact details. As part of this service, Mailchimp will gather statistics around open and clicks which again let us understand when we’re doing things well and when we need to do better. For more information, see the Mailchimp privacy notice.  

At any time, you’ll be able to stop receiving mails by using the unsubscribe button at the foot of our emails or by emailing


Under GDPR, members of the public are rightly entitled to know what information we hold about them.  Email your request to Matt McArthur at
