This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitors use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log informationand visitor behaviour information (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views) in an anonymous form. Note the deliberate emphasis of anonymous, as no personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information on this website.
The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google – not me. This information is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for this site only. I use these reports to evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that I can optimise the content, and its marketing, to better meet your needs. In summary, your anonymity is safe with me. That is my personal commitment to you as a valued visitor.
I will not link, or seek to link, any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information. If you have filled in the contact form, I request your name and email address just to contact you back about your feedback or questions.
3rd Party Tracking
Although I do not agree with it, embedded content from other providers may track your interaction with my content. For example, if I embed a video form YouTube, Google will track your interaction. Similarly a click on a social “share” button will result in a third party tracking that activity – such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ etc. Unfortunately, there is no way around this if you wish to share content socially or interact with content I have embedded form a 3rd-party.
My advice – set your browser to always block 3rd-party cookies. Content will still work, but no visitor data will be sent sent to a 3rd-party.
