Cookies have various different functions, but essentially they are used to allow websites to respond to you as an individual and how you use it. Cookies in no way give me access to your computer or any information other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies when you enter my website and see the cookie notice. Most browsers also allow you to refuse to accept cookies (for example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookie by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector). This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked, for example by a third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies. You can also delete any cookies that are already stored on your computer’s hard drive.
A table of the cookies I use on my website is set out below.
If you do not wish to accept cookies from this website, please leave this site immediately and then delete and block all cookies from this site. Alternatively, you may opt out of receiving information from me by emailing me on email@example.com. Please be aware that aspects of this website may not work if you reject the cookies.
