Blog/post commentsPersistent1 yearIf you leave a comment on the website e.g. on a page, article or blog post, then a cookie may be stored to 'remember' your email address for the next time you post (should you choose the "remember me" option).
Cookie headerPersistent1 yearIn the header of each web page on this site you will see a message alerting you of my privacy and cookie policy. If you've seen this message once, you probably won't want to see it again. I use a cookie to remember this setting. You can delete this cookie using the link below this table. User data is all anonymous.
Google analyticsPersistent2 yearsI use Google Analytics to understand how people use the site, and to alert me to problems with it. Most websites use some sort of analytics program like this. The data it collects tells me things like how many people visit the site, which country they are from, how many pages they visited, how fast the site loaded, and so on. All data collected is completely anonymous and does not identify you as an individual in any way.
