Who We Are

Our official website is Westside Physiotherapy.


When you leave a comment on our website, we collect the information you enter in the comments form, as well as your IP address and browser user agent string to aid in spam prevention.

Your email address may be converted into an encrypted string (known as a hash) and provided to the Gravatar service to verify if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be publicly displayed alongside your comment.


To ensure your privacy, we advise against uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Other visitors to the website may download and extract any location data from images found on the site.


If you opt to save your name, email address, and website in cookies after leaving a comment, these details are saved for your convenience so you won’t need to refill them next time you post a comment. These cookies will last for one year.

A temporary cookie will be set when you visit our login page to check if your browser accepts cookies, which contains no personal data and is discarded upon closing your browser.

Upon logging in, we set up cookies to store your login details and your screen display selections. Login cookies are kept for two days, and screen options cookies for a year. If you choose “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. Upon logging out, these cookies will be removed.

An additional cookie will be stored in your browser when you edit or publish an article, noting the post ID of the article you edited, expiring after one day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may feature embedded content such as videos, images, and articles. This content from other websites behaves as though the visitor has visited the source website directly.

These websites may gather data about you, employ cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with embedded content, including tracking interactions if you have an account and are logged in to those websites.

Data Sharing

Your IP address will be sent in the password reset email should you request to reset your password.

Data Retention

We retain comments and their metadata indefinitely to recognize and automatically approve any subsequent comments instead of holding them for moderation.

For registered users (if any), we also store the personal information they offer in their profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (username changes are not permitted). Website administrators can also view and edit that information.

Your Data Rights

Registered users or those who have left comments can request an export of their personal data held by us, including any data provided by them. You may also request the deletion of any personal data we hold. This excludes data retained for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Transference

Visitor comments may be vetted by an automated spam detection service.
