Cookies? Privacy? Attribution? Read on to find out our site policies and how your data is used here.

Cookies come in two forms as far as we can tell. The edible variety that we devour with relish, and the digital version that we mean in this context. Cookies on the web are small text files that are placed on your machine to help provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping baskets, and provide anonymised tracking data.

For this site, cookies are used for analytics primarily. We collect a small amount of data to analyse traffic and understand visitor interests, which allows improvements on the website in the future. Google’s reCAPTCHA service is used for our contact page to verify you’re a real human and our inbox doesn’t get bombarded with junk mail. This means Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply there. We additionally use Jetpack and Akismet to provide added functionality to the site and filter comments for spam. You can read their Privacy Policy too. Any data collected is anonymised, does not contain personal details and only ever used for traffic analysis or spam filtering.

As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. It’s best to consult the Help section of your chosen browser or take a look at About Cookies which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
