Terms & Conditions

I encourage you to read the below information and terms of conditions relating to cookies and my privacy policy.

IMPORTANT: If at any time you are unsure about how I use information obtained from your visit to my site, or do not consent to the use outlined below, you should exit my site immediately. Continued use of my site means that you accept the below policies.

Cookies and WordPress.com

WordPress.com host my site. You will note that any page you visit ends with ‘.wordpress.com’. WordPress needs first-party cookies to function. However I believe they do not use third-party cookies to track your online movements after leaving my site.

New EU regulations and cookies

Under new EU Regulations, websites that use session and persistent cookies need to ask you to actively ‘opt-in’ to use the website. As WordPress.com absolutely need first-party cookies, I believe that this classes the site in the exemption category of ‘strictly necessary’. However, I can be clear to you about what the cookies do. First party cookies via WordPress.com are used to monitor what search engine phrases are used to get to my site, and to calculate the number of unique visits to my site. They also help me to understand which of my articles are most frequently viewed. They do not keep any data provided by your computer (unless you are logged in as a WordPress member). Google and Bing analytics also use several cookies for this purpose. No personal information about you is stored, apart from your IP address.
My site will appear in your ‘History’ log on your computer/device but no data is actually stored on your computer (unless you are logged in as a WordPress.com member).

If you are viewing and logged in as a WordPress.com member

If you are a WordPress.com member, you are accepting the cookie/privacy policy of WordPress.com and by logging in, accept their conditions. You should refer to these if you are unsure.
