Privacy Policy

Who Am I? And what do I do?

This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitors use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. Note the deliberate emphasis of anonymous, as no personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information on this website.

The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google – not me. This information is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for this site only. I use these reports to evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that I can optimise the content, and its marketing, to better meet your needs. This is essential for me to operate this website as a free to use service.

In summary, your anonymity is safe with me. That is my personal commitment to you as a valued reader. For more information, see my posts about online privacy best practice.

3rd Party Tracking

Embedded content from other providers may track your interaction with my content. For example, if I embed a video form YouTube, Google will track your interaction. Similarly a click on a social “share” button will result in a third party tracking that activity – such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ etc. Unfortunately, there is no way around this if you wish to share content socially or interact with content I have embedded form a 3rd-party.

My advice – set your browser to always block 3rd-party cookies. Content will still work, but no visitor data will be sent sent to a 3rd-party.
