Cookie Disclosure

The very, very short version of this document:

We use cookies on this webpage to remember your preferences and settings – for example; I logged in so don’t log me out everytime I visit a new page, or; I already closed that popup, don’t bother me with it again. Adverts pay for the content on this website, so our advertisers may also use cookies to show you ads you might find helpful, for example; if you already visited another website and the advertiser would like you to see a reminder about those shoes (or whatever) you already looked at. They would like you to buy the shoes, and sometimes these reminder ads will mean you get a discount or coupon as part of the reminder that you wouldn’t have seen otherwise. There’s nothing sinister about any of this, its just how our website works, and how the internet (and TV for that matter) works in general.

If you want the verbose legalese version, here goes:

1. Introduction

1.1 Our website uses cookies.

1.2 By using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

2. About cookies

3.1 A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

3.2 Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

3.3 Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

3.4 Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.

You can also opt out of the AdSense partner network cookie using those settings or using the NAI’s (Network Advertising Initiative’s) multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/

However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you may wish to consider using the Google browser plug-in available at:
