Granting permission to use cookies

If the settings on your software that you are using to view this website (your browser) are adjusted to accept cookies I take this, and your continued use of our website, to mean that you are fine with this.

Cookies this Site sets

When you use this website the following cookies may be set:

Social Network Cookies

So you can easily “Like” or share my content on the likes of Facebook and Twitter I have included sharing buttons on each post.

The impact on privacy will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

I do not run any advertising or targeting campaigns and I am not affiliated with social networks in any way.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies (Analytical/performance)

I use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited my website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so-called “analytics” programs also tell us if, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

I use Google Analytics to achieve this. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services.

I use it in its simplest form to see how many visitors I get if any at all. This means it only collects aggregate information and not device identifiers or any other potentially personal data. I do NOT use Ad Sense or any other audience targeting options.

You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so, however, will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites

It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so-called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
