I allow third-party companies, specifically AddThis and Google AdSense, to collect certain anonymous information when you visit my website. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.  These companies typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information.  To learn more about this behavioural advertising practice, you can visit

This is done to aid your usage of the site, and to support the hosting costs (the advertising on the site was implemented when I had to upgrade my hosting, and in fact contributes very little towards the cost).  Whilst I cannot guarantee that we’ll never make a profit from this site, my costs far outweigh any revenue currently.

In addition, access to this site is logged (as is the case for nearly all websites). Whilst the data is retained (rather than disposed of) and analysed, this is only done for the purpose of maintaining the site, and will never be provided to anybody else. Whilst I employ all reasonable methods that I’m aware of to secure this data (including regular archiving off the web-server), I cannot guarantee that it can’t be stolen (though why you’d want to steal it I’ve no idea).
