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 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.
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.
