Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser. They’re used for many things, such as remembering whether you’ve visited the site before, so that you remain logged in – or to help me work out how many new website visitors I get each month. They contain information about the use of your computer but don’t include personal information about you (they don’t store your name, for instance).

The information collected by cookies does not personally identify you; it includes general information about your computer settings, your connection to the Internet e.g. operating system and platform, IP address, your browsing patterns and timings of browsing on the Website and your location.
Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can change the settings of your browser to erase cookies or prevent automatic acceptance if you prefer.

Types of cookie that may be used during your visit to the Website:
The following types of cookie are used on this site. I don’t list every single cookie used by name – but for each type of cookie I tell you how you can control its use.
- Personalisation cookies
These cookies are used to recognise repeat visitors to the Website and in conjunction with other information we hold to attempt to record specific browsing information (that is, about the way you arrive at the Website, pages you view, options you select, information you enter and the path you take through the Website). These are used to recommend content we think you’ll be interested in based on what you’re looked at before.
- Analytics cookies
These monitor how visitors move around the Website and how they reached it. This is used so that we can see total (not individual) figures on which types of content users enjoy most, for instance.
You can opt out of these if you want:
- Third-party service cookies
Social sharing, video and other services we offer are run by other companies. These companies may drop cookies on your computer when you use them on our site or if you are already logged in to them.
- Facebook’s data use policy:https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/your-info-on-other
- Other social media networks or platforms meant to share the content of the website through the sharing buttons.
- My own ad serving and management cookies
I sell some space from this website to advertisers or third parties – they pay for the content you enjoy for free.
As part of this, I use several services to help me and advertisers understand what adverts you might be interested in. These cookies hold information about the computer – they don’t hold personal information about you (ie it’s not linked to you as an individual). But they might hold a record of what other websites you’ve looked at – so I could show you a car advert if you’ve previously visited a motoring website.
These are the services I use and how you can control those cookies. Please note that turning off advertising cookies won’t mean that you are not served any advertising merely that it will not be tailored to your interests.
- Other services.
- Site management cookies
These are used to maintain your identity or session on the Website.
These cookies cannot be turned off individually but you could change your browser setting to refuse all cookies (see above) if you do not wish to accept them.
