Cookies policy

This website, like most websites, uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that a website puts on your computer or device so it can recognise you.

This website uses cookies in several ways:

  • Analytics - my site uses cookies to give me an anonymised picture of traffic on my website, including counting the number of visits different pages get and the amount of time visitors spend on my website. By better understanding the popular content on this website, I can ensure I'm creating new content that reflects my visitors' interests. I use Google Analytics and you can opt out using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
  • Affiliate advertising - my website uses affiliate advertising. That means if you follow a link on my site to another site and then buy something, I might get commission on that sale. This is used mainly for promoting my own books, but also in advertising panels and links on selected pages. Revenue from affiliate sales helps to support the cost of operating this website. Affiliate programmes I use include Amazon.

The service providers (Google, Amazon) may be able to track your surfing across different websites, but will not be able to identify you unless you've told them who you are. They do not pass any personal or profiling information on to me, except for some basic aggregate statistics (number of clicks to Amazon, products ordered at Amazon following a visit I referred, and patterns of browsing this website).

In most browsers, you can adjust your controls so that your browser does not accept cookies, and you can remove unwanted cookies. For more information on how to do that, I recommend All about cookies. If you do not wish to receive cookies while using this website, please adjust your browser settings accordingly.

If you have any questions about the use of cookies on this website, please contact me.
