About my Privacy Policy and cookies used on this website.

Thank you for visiting my website.  

Some visitors may be a little confused or perhaps even worried about privacy matters on the Internet so the purpose of this page is to inform you of the privacy policy I follow on this site. I hope by providing this information I can alleviate some of your concerns..  By using the site, you accept the practices described below...

Traffic Analysis

Google analytics measure visitors to the site using cookies that anonymously collects data of your visit and records what pages are visited etc. and some basic information about your computer. I never get to know who you are,  just that you are one of a number of anonymous people who visited.  This way I can understand what pages are interesting my visitors and what are not, so that I can improve my content.  More can be learned from this link -     http://www.google.co.uk/analytics/

To Help With The Costs Of Maintaining My Website

In order to help maintain my sites, I use affiliate programs from Amazon that pays me a small commission if a visitor clicks through from my website and makes a purchase.  The purchase price of any item, would be the same as if you went direct to Amazon itself. All links are currently to Amazon, UK. In the future depending on visitors, I may include links to Amazon in other countries, but will update this information if and when I do.

From time to time I may use other affiliate links to other companies with products and services that I feel are pertinent the content on my sites.

I also use Google Adsense on my site that again, pays a small commission when somebody clicks on these links.

Social Networks.

You may see a "Tweet" button on the website, or a "Like" button on some pages, and if you "Tweet" or "Like" any of my pages to those sites, they would require you to sign in and it would mean that they may know that you have visited my site. I have no access to these networks and cannot control what information they receive.  I would  imagine that if any visitor to my site is already registered with a social network then he/she would understand the privacy policies of that network.

E-mail

You are invited to    me with any questions on pages throughout the website and this would mean that I would have your e-mail address.  I would only e-mail you to answer questions you ask and would never send any unsolicited e-mail or reveal your e-mail address to anyone, unless that is, you specifically aske me to.
