Cookie Policy

Like the vast majority of internet websites, (hereinafter referred to as "This Website") may use cookies.

It was our goal to make This Website 100% "cookie free" and we have taken great steps to minimize cookie usage; eliminating various "plug in" services that send cookies - for example Cloudflare, Facebook "Like" module, ShareThis and more. However for technical and business reasons it proved too difficult to eliminate cookies entirely. We really tried! Some of the third-party services that we may use, including analytics providers and advertisers, set cookies. These third parties may have access to your personally identifying information.

This page gives an overview of how we use cookies, how third parties we partner with may utilize cookies, your choices and further relevant information about cookies.

What Are Cookies?

"Cookies" are small text files that may be sent to a user's computer when a web site is accessed. This Website may use cookies for the purposes of tracking user behaviour with regard to improving functionality and for market research.

Cookies have two general types - "persistent" or "session". Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device until such times as they are deleted, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

How This Website Uses Cookies

When you access / use this website, a number of both session and persistent cookies may be placed in your web browser.

We use cookies for the following purposes:

Third Party Cookies

This Website may feature advertisements, embedded third party apps such as maps, videos and social media plugins. Advertisements, videos and other third party apps on our website may place cookies which report various data metrics to the provider of the third party functions.

• Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to your website.
• Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
• Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting the ads preference manager. Alternatively, users can opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies for interest based advertising by visiting

In order to limit cookies, This Website also features some third party ads in the form of simple links and banners, which do not place cookies directly. Note that these third parties may place cookies when the site linked to is visited - but this happens outside of our website and does not give us access to any resulting data nor control of it. For example, may place cookies on visitors browsers. You may (possibly) be able to opt out of these cookies through or by visiting More info about Amazon's use of cookies can be found here -

Youtube Videos: We have set the embedded Youtube videos on This Website to the "youtube-nocookie" option so that they do not track visitors.

Google Analytics:

UPDATE: We have eliminated Google Analytics from the majority of our websites and substituted with analytics, which in our view has more robust, used-friendly privacy practices and does not track users. However in certain instances, third parties we associate with requested statistics from us specifically in the form of Google Analytics, and on such websites we continue to use Google Analytics.

This Website may use Google Analytics in order to track visitor activity with a view to observing and improve site performance, and for market research.

Google Analytics may use cookies - and the information (such as, but not limited to, IP address*, geographic location (town and country), date and time of access, time spent on site, keywords used in searches to find This Website) generated by the use of Google Analytics is transmitted to, and stored by Google Inc. We have access to this data but have no control over how this information is used by Google Inc. Deletion of personally identifying information is available upon request. Google Analytics' Policies can be viewed here:

*We implemented the { 'anonymize_ip': true } option, which, we are informed, provides greater privacy by anonymizing the IP address. Google Analytics retains information that Google does not deem to be "Personally Identifying Information" (PII). Full details on Google Analytics' cookie use here:

We may share access to our Google Analytics with our associates - for example certain Advertising networks may request Analytics access, or third parties, in the event of discussions relating to business acquisition or sale of assets.

What Are Your Choices Regarding Cookies?

Most web browsers' default settings are to accept cookies automatically - however it is possible with almost all browsers to change browser preferences, in order to refuse cookies, delete cookies or to enable individual confirmation requests before accepting them. Browsers typically offer options to view and delete either all or specific cookies that have already been placed on your browser.
