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


Cookies

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

How cookies are used here

  • Functional: Jetpack and Akismet are used to provide extra features to the site (like related posts and projects) and filter comments for spam. Their Privacy Policy will also apply.
  • Functional: Google’s reCAPTCHA service is used on the contact page to confirm you’re a real human, so our inbox doesn’t get bombarded with junk mail. This means Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply there.
  • Analytics: I collect a small amount of data to analyse traffic and understand your interests. These allows improvements on the website and help us review the content for future.

Any data we collect is anonymised, does not contain personal details and is only ever used for traffic analysis or spam filtering.

What if I don’t want cookies?

As a rule, cookies make your browsing experience better. But I get it! I’m the same on websites I visit, so make analytics cookies opt-in by default. This means you have to choose if I can use these types of cookies anyway.

For functional cookies, you can’t opt-out because I use the services to make the website work. However, if you want to stop cookies on this website and others, try disabling them in your browser. It’s best to check the Help section of your chosen browser or visit About Cookies for guidance on all modern browsers.

You can change your cookie preferences any time by clicking on the following link.
