Occasionally we may invite customers and subscribers to answer surveys, so we can find out how to improve our services.

We DO collect anonymous statistical data, such as, what search engines visitors use and which pages are popular, which helps us improve our website and services for you.

You must be aged 16 or over to comment on our blog posts and/or share our web pages with third-parties - Posting Guidelines below.


What on earth are these cookies you can't eat? Click to find out.

Cookies are not spam or malware! Servers need a way to keep track of which requests are made by which website visitor, such as clicking a link to a new page, leaving a comment on a blog post, loading a video, adding an item to your shopping cart or logging in to your account.

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser and contains anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.

Under the 2012 EU e-Privacy Directive, all EU websites must comply and make it clear what information they are collecting from visitors, specifically with cookies.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, personalising content, storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of a website.

Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier and can also monitor anonymous statistics, such as how many visits a website has, which pages are visited and which browsers are used.

There are two types of cookies:

A. Session Cookies generally expire after thirty minutes or at the end of your visit.

B. Persistent Cookies are used for repeat visits and generally expire a year after your first visit, though some will remain active for longer.

And there are two types of parties that generate cookies:

  1. First-party Cookies are set by the website you are visiting and can help to:
  • verify logged-in administrators, staff, editors, clients, subscribers, purchasers and users;
  • remember names and email addresses of those leaving comments;
  • remember registered email and newsletter subscribers and whether to display notifications valid to subscribed/unsubscribed users;
  • collect and remember user details or data submitted through forms (such as contact forms) for future correspondence.
  • process ecommerce orders or payments.

2. Third-party Cookies are set by other websites who:

  • run content on the page you are viewing, for example, embedded content from websites such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc and/or targeted adverts, like Google Ads {I don’t run these types of adverts on my website BTW!};
  • or run software on the website, such as WordPress, security plugins, statistical software like Google Analytics, social media sharing plugins, etc.

So you can get First-party Session Cookies and First-party Persistent Cookies. Ditto for Third-party Cookies.

You can disable cookies by adjusting settings in your browser. Please know that disabling or blocking cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit, though some browsers allow you to disable certain ones, like third party cookies. Specific details in our privacy policy below.

Instructions for managing/disabling cookies in different browsers are at the bottom of the page.

Please note we only collect data and use cookies to improve your experience as well as the products and services we offer to you.

Thank you.

The full Privacy Policy below {in my native British English} explains:

  • what data we collect + why;
  • our Posting Guidelines {please have fun, be polite & professional!}; and
  • what cookies we use + why.
