Who we are

We are the Robode team, a small but passionate team of homebuilders, gardeners, tech enthusiasts and more. We all love to write about just about anything to do with the home and garden. Our website address is: https://robode.net.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We take the privacy of our users extremely seriously.

We may collect some personal date in the course of standard site operations. This may include standard analytics information and may also involve the placement of cookies on your device. Collected information may include, but is not limited to, the time and date of your visit, pages viewed during your visit, referring websites and your IP address.


If you choose to leave a comment on the site, we may use your IP address and user details for the purpose of SPAM detection.


If you choose to upload images to the site, it is your responsibility to remove any identifying information.

Contact forms

Any information provided through our contact form will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. Any information you do provide will be used solely for the purpose of responding to your enquiry and only held on file as required by law.


We, and our associated sites, may place cookies on your device as part of your visit for the purpose of data aggregation and advertising.

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.

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.


We use Google Analytics and a number of alternative analytics services to understand user behaviour and visitor numbers.

Who we share your data with

We do not share our user data with third parties other than authorised advertisers and analytics services. No personally identifiable information is directly shared by us as part of this process and only aggregated data is used.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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

Comments left on the site may be filtered through an automated spam protection service. Any other user data is used specifically for the purposes outlined above and is used only in accordance with site operation.
