All about cookies
EU legislation now requires me to tell you about the cookies used on this website. The cookies are nothing new: the site, like most others, has always used them. It’s just that I now have to make sure you understand that this is the case, and that you are happy to accept them. Hopefully, this page should answer any questions you might have.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
Cookies are widely used in online advertising, but no-one can gain personally identifiable information from cookies used on this site. I only work with advertising partners who work to accepted privacy standards.
You can learn more about online advertising at youronlinechoices.com. You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies via this website, although I’d would prefer that you didn’t as ultimately adverts help to fund the site. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you.
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 will limit the functionality of many websites since 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. You can learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software here.
