Privacy, cookies and disclosures

Cookies and information.

This website does not handle e.commerce or sales and therefore does not collect or share personal details from those who use it. It does not contain any sign-up forms or subscriptions to newsletters, and it does not collect comments. It has no need, therefore, to request any private information or to store the email addresses of visitors. It does not store information concerning your browsing activity, either, other than to monitor the website’s general performance through the gathering of statistics, which help us design and present our material more effectively and to optimise the reading experience of those who visit.

This is achieved through what are called 'cookies' - small items of text that may be stored on your browser. These are in common with the vast majority of websites on today's internet and do not, in our case, record any information that can identify you as an individual. Cookies can also be erased or turned off at anytime by modifying your browser's privacy settings.

3rd party cookies.

When you visit a page on this site with content embedded from external sites such as Youtube or Amazon, your browser is usually presented with cookies from those websites. These might show up on your browser’s list of installed cookies, especially if you are already logged in to one or more of these sites. We are not responsible for these external sites or for their cookie policy. If you have concerns, it is suggested that you review the privacy policy of these vendors prior to visiting or logging in to them from this web site. Alternatively, as mentioned previously, you can always turn off cookies altogether in your browser settings. The embedded content we use comes from mainsteam and trusted vendors such as Youtube, Vimeo and Amazon.

Share Buttons

The share buttons that you find at the foot of the pages are provided by the company 'AddToAny'' These buttons link pages on this site to those of Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+ Pinterest and others. They allow visitors to share material they find here with their followers or friends on those sites. Again, we are not responsible for these sites or for the activities of those who use them. Similarly, we are not responsible for any content on other websites that might be copied or linked to from this website without permission.
