Cookies
Cookies are tiny files that are added to your computer as you use and interact with websites. They are used mostly for good: To improve your experience, sometimes for bad: Search engines, Social sites etc. may use them to track what a computer (the computer, not the person) is looking at. Many like Google will use them to target you with adverts and for analytics, which results in them being able to build a profile of what you do online. You will get these cookies added to your computer when you land on certain websites, like Google, Youtube, Facebook etc. This site makes use of Cookies, mainly so we can be sure to only show you certain content once, for example, popups or reminders.

Cookies can sound a bit Orwellian and "Big Brother", but mostly they're pretty harmless and unless you land on a website that requests your data and you offer it, the data they hold is mostly anonymous, they don't have your name and email address etc. You can clear out your cookies by clearing your browser history.

However, as we said this site from time to time will use cookies (never for data gathering or advertising). It is generally good practice to install a cookie manager so that you can see what websites install what cookies, as most have them but few admit to it.

Cookies generally fall into three categories: Session, 1st Party Persistent & 3rd Party. A fuller explanation of these is at the bottom of this privacy policy.

IP Address
An IP address is a unique number that identifies your computer on the internet; it is in the form of 111.222.333.444. Lots of services, like YouTube, Facebook etc., requires that websites send them your IP address before they allow sites to display things like embedded video, or Facebook elements, and so on. In reality, your IP address isn't personal data, as 99% of the time, you can't be identified by it. Regardless, some consider do consider it as such, so to keep ourselves in the clear we've added this bit to our privacy policy: On occasion, your IP address may be shared with some service providers.

Cookies: Further Explained

Session cookies
Session cookies are added to your machine as you surf websites. They are only retained for as long as your browser remains open. They allow a form of memory to exist between your browser and the websites you visit, such as pages visited, shopping cart contents, last viewed items etc. These cookies will remain after you leave the website but will be deleted once you close the browser (fully close it, not hide or minimise it).

1st Party Persistent Cookies
"Persistent cookies" remain on your computer even after you've closed the browser. 1st Party cookies can only relay information back to the website that placed them on your computer. Typically they're used to store site preferences to save you from having to re-enter information on future visits. They may also be used to track your activities (links clicked, pages visited etc.) while visiting a site. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them, normally by using the browsers clear history feature, although other methods exist.

3rd Party Persistent Cookies
"Persistent cookies" remain on your computer even after you've closed the browser. 3rd Party cookies are typically used when a website has part of its content delivered via a third party, like embedded videos, maps etc. Websites featuring advertising commonly use 3rd party cookies to deliver the adverts; Over time 3rd party cookies will build up a profile your online habits (websites viewed, links clicked etc. so they can deliver targeted adds. 3rd party cookies have other purposes too, for more information on this we suggest you search the internet for "what do 3rd party cookies do?". We try to avoid third-party cookies as much as is possible. However, we may, from time to time utilise third party content and cannot guarantee that such content does not have third-party cookies delivered with it. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them, normally by using the browsers clear history feature, although other methods exist.
