Privacy & Cookies

This website does not collect personal contact information of any kind.

But this website does use cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive by websites you visit. You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser’s settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how at www.aboutcookies.org). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of this, and other, websites, as cookies are a standard part of the modern internet.

None of the cookies we use stores any information that identifies you personally, such as your name or address.

One of the cookies we use is a ‘persistent cookie’ which allocates a unique ID number to record your use of this website. Persistent cookies remain on your hard disk until you delete them, and because they originate from the web server hosting site, they are ‘first party cookies’.

Other persistent cookies are used by the free webs statistics tools, Google Analytics and cPanel, that collect and analyse site statistics. Again, they do not collect any personally identifiable information and are only used for the tracking data such as visits and page hits. The cookies store IP addresses, but we cannot link those addresses to any individual or path through the website.

We do not use ’spyware’, that is web bugs or hidden identifiers or other similar devices to gain access to information, store hidden information or to trace your activities.
