Basic information is collected each time you visit this website to enable functionality and ease of use. I fully respect your right to privacy and recognise the importance of ensuring the security of that information. I will not collect any personal information about you on this website without your clear permission.

This policy is applicable to the website only. Once you have left the site these terms do not apply.

What is a cookie?

This website uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is stored on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. It allows the website to distinguish your visit from all others and remember the pages you view during that visit.

This site uses two types of cookies; session cookies and persistent cookies. Neither of these save information that identifies you personally. Both types are used to track movement of visitors from page to page allowing for site statistics to be collated.

A session cookie only lasts as long as your visit to the site. Once your ‘session’ has ended these cookies are deleted.

A persistent cookie will remain on your hard drive until it is deleted. These are used to note when you revisit the website.

How this site uses cookies

To analyse site statistics and traffic this site uses Google Analytics. The information is collected purely for statistical and analytical purposes, evaluating each visitor’s use of the website. The cookies used by Google Analytics store IP addresses, again for statistical purposes, but cannot be linked to an individual user. This tool helps me learn how visitors use the website and how it can be improved.

The information collected

For the purposes of tracking traffic flow to and around the website, Google Analytics may store information including:

  • Your IP address
  • The previous website visited, including any search terms used
  • Click data which shows the pages visited on the website
  • The type and capabilities of the web browser used by the website visitor

However none of this information can identify you personally. As already explained, the site uses Google Analytics purely to track and analyse these site statistics.

Turning off and deleting cookies

Most web browsers will provide the option to disallow cookies. How you do this depends on the web browser you're using. Instructions for disallowing cookies can usually be found in the browser's 'Help' menu.

Cookies can also be deleted using your internet browser. However, unless they are disallowed they will be re-applied the next time you visit a website.
