You are responsible for opting out of tracking at the relevant third party websites. We have provided links to this where we can, but cannot be responsible if the third party website has moved them. Thus, you are responsible for seeking out alternative methods to disable them.

Contact Us Form, Leaving Comments & Mailing Lists

Using the Contact Us form or leaving a comment, means we will retain your name, email and other provided data for the purpose of communicating with you. Such data is not shared.

If third party software (such as for mailing lists) is used to provide such a service, such providers retain your information for that purpose and if you clicked on a link on the email, we’d know. However to date, we have not used such a facility.

Links to Other sites

This website may contain links to external websites not operated by us. If you click on the link to a third party site, their privacy policies will prevail.

Affiliate Links

Some of the third party links may be affiliate marketing links. This means, we earn a small fee from the seller or advertiser. It makes no difference to you in terms of price and you get exactly the same item as if you went to shop directly on the seller’s site, but it can help us defray the cost of running this website.

To date, we have not linked up with any party

Google Analytics, Google Signals & Google Adsense

Google utilizes the Data collected to track and examine the use of this Website, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the Data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

When you have Ads Personalisation turned on, or where you are signed in to a Google service or app. Google tracks your activity across all devices.

What this means in real life, is that even when you move from website to website, you may see ads from a website you visited previously, following you through to another website because of some action or activity (eg clicking a link, buying something) you may have performed on the previous website, even if it was on another device. That’s because Google is tracking you based on your login, or the cookies that persist and continue to identify you.

Based on information you have agreed to share with Google, Google, knows your age, gender, your purchasing preferences, places you’ve physically visited, the YouTube videos you’ve seen, your search history, including data from sites that partner with Google and so on.

To date we have not linked with Google Analytics.
