Copyright and legal notices

Use of Cookies on this website

Cookies are small text files that can be used by web sites to make a user’s experience more efficient.

The law states that I can store cookies on your machine if they are essential to the operation of this site but that for all others I need your permission to do so.

I do use some non-essential cookies. I do not do this to track individual users or to identify them, but to gain useful knowledge about how the site is used so that I can keep improving it for my users. Without the knowledge I gain from the systems that use these cookies I would not be able to so do.

This site uses different types of cookie.

I use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to help me to analyse how users use the site. It counts the number of visitors and tells me things about their behaviour overall – such as the typical length of stay on the site or the average number of pages a user views.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of my website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google undertakes not to associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

If you have Adobe Flash installed on your computer (most computers do) and you use an audio or video player, Google Analytics will try to store some additional data on your computer. This data is known as a Local Shared Object or Flash cookie. This helps me to analyse the popularity of my media files. I can count the total number of times each file is played, how many people watch videos right to the end and how many people give up half way through. Adobe’s website offers tools to control Flash cookies on your computer.

Some third party cookies are set by services that appear on our pages. They are set by the operators of that service and are not in my control. They are set by Twitter, Facebook and others and relate to the ability of users to share content on this site, as indicated by these icons.

If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies. You can access them through some types of browser. Search in your cookie folders to find our cookie and the Google Analytics cookie if you wish to delete them.

More information about cookies, including how to block them or delete them, can be found at AboutCookies.org.
