Gone are the days of a delightfully simple Privacy Policy . Here is where we’re at in the year 2023…

Website

Cookies: yum. gang gang.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies may be either ‚Äúpersistent‚ÄĚ cookies or ‚Äúsession‚ÄĚ cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. ¬†

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

We use cookies to determine if you are a new visitor to the site so we can serve a pop-up subscription form. If you have cookies turned off, you will likely see this form on every page, which you may find very annoying.

Nowadays, we also use cookies for these purposes:

(a) advertising ‚Äď we use cookies to help us to display advertisements that will be relevant to you; and

(b)¬†analysis ‚Äď we use cookies to help us to analyze the use and performance of our website and services;

We also use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website. Google Analytics gathers information about website use by means of cookies. The information gathered relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of our website. Google’s privacy policy is available at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Some people find this particularly creepy, so you can opt out. To opt-out from Facebook’s interest-based ads, follow these instructions from Facebook.

Facebook adheres to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising established by the Digital Advertising Alliance. You can also opt-out from Facebook and other participating companies through the Digital Advertising Alliance in the USA, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe, or opt-out using your mobile device settings.
