Cookies are tiny text files which store various bits of data. For the most part they are used when you're logged in to a site (so it knows that you're logged in - IE - Facebook, Twitter), or when a site wants to remember simple data like your name, what items are in your shopping basket, or when your last visit was.
Some cookies do track web usage, for example to tailor advertisements on sites to previous browsing habits. While this in itself is not harmful, it's not always desirable. Quite often these types of cookies are set without consent.
That's the whole purpose of this page. We want to be straight and honest about how we use your data. It's now a legal requirement for us to do so too.
The information that follows will describe exactly what data we collect and how we use it.
We only store cookies for the following:
- Google Analytics
We've disabled them wherever else possible. If you notice our site is storing any other cookie, please contact us immediately and let us know.
In the future we may require further cookies to be set (if we add things like user log in, further commenting systems, etc). If this ever happens, we'll detail them on this page too, so you'll always know where you stand.
Google Analytics data is anonymous and aggregated, and thus cannot be used to track you in any way or personally identify you.
We also do not, pass on or sell any data we collect either from Google Analytics or filled-in contact forms.
We do not use banner advertising on our site and therefore no 3rd party advertising cookies will be left on your machine from visiting our site.
