use of cookies

This website uses cookies to improve the user experience while visiting the website. Where applicable this website uses a cookie control mechanism that allows the user to allow or decline the use of cookies on his computer/device when he first visits the website. This complies with recent legislation requirements for websites to obtain explicit consent from users before reading or leaving behind files such as cookies on the user's computer/device.

This website uses tracking software to better understand its visitors and how they use it. This software is provided by Google Analytics which uses cookies to track visitor usage. This software will save a cookie to your computer's hard drive in order to track and monitor your interaction and use of the Website, but personal information will not be stored, saved or collected. For more information you can read Google's Privacy Policy here -

Other cookies may be placed on your computer by external vendors when this website uses referral programs, sponsored links or advertisements Can be stored on the hard drive. Such cookies are used for conversion and referral tracking and typically expire after 30 days, although some may take longer. No personal information is stored, saved or collected.

A cookie is a technique for remembering something about you.

Without cookies, a website is like a goldfish that loses its memory every time you visit a new page. Once you visit a new page, it doesn't remember who you are.

Now this can be a good and bad thing. Without any memory, a website can't do a lot of work. It can't let you log in, because it forgets who you are. It can't let you buy anything, because it forgets what you're buying.

But that also means it can't track you. Some websites use cookies to remember what you do on their website, and to target advertising to you. And some of those websites share their cookies, so that ads on one website can know what you liked on another website. It has scared a lot of people.

Cookies aren't automatically good or bad, but it's worth understanding what you can do about them.

You can turn them off completely, which is like banning all music to prevent another Justin Bieber album. Many websites will not work.

A better option would be to turn off third party cookies, which will prevent most websites from sharing information about you. Some browsers - such as Safari - do this automatically.

And finally, you can take an in-depth look at any website that concerns you. Most websites have policies that state what they do if you want to watch.

Well, more than 90% of websites use cookies. Cookies aren't automatically good or bad, but it's worth understanding what you can do about them.
