TO EU USERS:
We keep no personal information about our visitors and have no access to personal information about our visitors.
We share information about your use of our site with Google, our advertising and analytics partner. For more information on how Google uses data visit this link: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners/ and to change your personal settings see https://myaccount.google.com/?hl=en and to see what 'personalised topics' have been identified with you see Ads Settings.
See the bottom of the Ads Settings page for information about how to opt out of personalised ads from Google and other advertising networks.
In accordance with EU GDPR rules, from 25 May 2018 we do not show ads that track your personal interests and behaviour.
We do not set any cookies on your computer for our own use. Cookies are used by third parties such as Google analytics and Google adsense to help enhance your experience and to help us to offer a better service to future visitors. These cookies do not identify you personally, they simply record how long 'a visitor' spent on a particular page or on the site, or how often visitors come back to the site a second time for example.
Individually this information is not useful but when looked at together it is very useful to us e.g. if we can see over a period of time that visitors spend twice as long reading page X compared with page Y we can look to see what improvements we can make to page Y. As we said, this is to improve the overall visitor experience and has no connection with you personally.
IP anonymization is turned on in our google analytics accounts: your IP address is not recorded by google or ourselves and can not be personally identified with you.
