Privacy Policy

Okay, let’s dive into the nitty gritty and answer some of those burning questions about what I do to protect your Privacy.

First off, please note that although I use third party tools to analyse data and for advertising purposes (which follow their own reputable privacy policies), I will never disclose or share your personal data with third parties.

Log Files
Like many other websites, this website makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’s analytics.

The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks.

This information is used to analyse trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

How is it collected?

This website uses cookies and web beacons to collect and store information about visitors’ preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages the site visitor accesses or visits, and to personalise or customise our web page content based upon visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser.

Cookies this site uses:

This website uses three different types of cookie:

  2. Tracking/Performance: Tracking Cookies help me to see how people are getting to and using this website on what devices. To do this, Google Analytics is used. Your data is never passed onto a third party.
  3. Advertising: Every now and again, I’ll add Amazon affiliate links to relevant posts to show where you can buy the item I’m talking about. To make these happen, they use DoubleClick DART cookies (you can read up on them below).
