Privacy & Cookies

When you visit this site, certain information about you is recorded. We never sell this information.

Log Files

We (like most websites) collect data contained in log files. The information recorded in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (Internet Explorer or Firefox, for example), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site. If you followed a link from another site (include a listing from a search engine), the address of the web page you came from will also be recorded.

Cookies and Web Beacons

This site places cookies on your computer. Also, this site contains links to other (external) websites, and these external websites might use cookies.

You can chose to selectively allow/disallow our cookies or third-party cookies. This can be done using your browser settings. Some security software also allows you to manage cookies via your privacy/security preferences. Note however, that this can affect how you interact with websites that rely on cookies. For example, it could prevent you logging into forums or accounts; it could also prevent you from posting comments or using the contact form.

  • If you have your browser settings set to allow cookies, then it is assumed that  you consent to this site storing cookies on your computer.

How This Site Uses Cookies

Assuming you have set your browser (via its settings menu option) to allow cookies, then this site will store cookies onto your computer’s hard disk, as follows:

If you post a comment, three cookies will be stored on your computer to record the following information: your name, your email address, and your web site address (if you supplied one). This information will be used to fill in the relevant fields of the comment form when you use it in the future (purely to save you filling them in, over and over again).

If you visit the contact page, a cookie called ‘ddfmcode’ will be stored on your computer. This is necessary for the generation of the ‘verify’ code. That is, the series of letters and numbers (that are displayed in the form of an image) that you are asked to type in when you fill in the form. Note that this code is there to verify that you are genuinely human being, and not a ‘robot’ (a computer program) being used to send ‘spam’ emails to this site.

If you are an account holder – that is, you have an account via which you can update this site via its admin pages – then some more cookies are used. These are as follows (where UID is your user id as it is encoded in the database underlying this site):

  • wordpress-UID – stored when you log in, and needed to store your user name and password.
  • wordpress-logged-in-UID – stored after you log in to record the fact that you are logged in.
  • wp-settings-UID, wp-settings-{time}-UID – used in customising your view of the admin pages, and, possibly, your view of the site (which you may have changed from its default via the admin pages).
  • TinyMCE_content_size – stored if you change the size of the editor pane (used for writing page/post content), and used to record the size you have set it to.
  • wordpress_test_cookie – stored to determine if you have your browser set to allow cookies or not.
