A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
We use Google Analytics to track more details about how our website is being used. We can analyse the IP address, type of browser, date/time, pages visited, amount of clicks, referring pages, exit pages, and other information that is completely anonymous.
Amazon Affiliate Links
Our website is a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.co.uk.
On our website there are links to products on the Amazon website which we have recommended or profiled. When you click through to the Amazon website from one of these product links we make a small amount of commission if you go on to purchase the product. However, the price you pay will be exactly the same as if you had gone directly to the Amazon.co.uk website.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
Controlling your personal information
Every email that we send to you contains links in the footer to view the information we hold about you and to allow you to unsubscribe from all future emails.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
