Privacy and disclosures
Cookies and information.
This website does not handle e.commerce or sales of any kind and therefore does not collect personal information from those who use it. It does not collect comments, and therefore does not 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 to 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. They can also be erased or turned off at anytime by modifying your browser privacy settings.
3rd party cookies.
The share buttons that you find at the foot of the pages (which are common-place on blogging sites everywhere) are provided by the company 'AddToAny' and 'AddThis.' These buttons link to Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+ and Pinterest and allow visitors to share the pages they find here directly with their followers or friends on those sites. There is also a Pinterest share button that appears on most images in case visitors wish to share items to their Pinterest boards. 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.
This site and its associated blog, Endymion, are ad-free and do not have any annoying pop-up windows. The author is, however, a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means of earning small referral fees by linking to Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
Blogging entails the use of images and video clips - and many of these are sourced from all over the web. Every care is taken to ensure these are free of copyright restrictions. If you feel any of these infringe upon your copyright, however, please let us know, and we will remove them (email: robertstephenparry at gmail dot com).
