Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies are used to store information, such as your personal preferences, for a fixed length of time when the site is visited. This information could include only showing you a message or a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to access some of our features.
This site uses third-party advertising companies, such as Google Adsense, to serve advertisements to visitors to the site in order to provide financial support to the site. These companies may use technology such as cookies and web beacons to collect information (such as your IP address, your ISP, your web browser and, in some cases, whether you have Flash installed, but not including any personally identifiable data such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to this web site in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. In general terms this means that the third-party advertisers are able to geotarget their advertisements (for example, showing London Estate Agents adverts to someone in London), or showing advertisements based on particular sites you have visited (for example, showing advertisements relating to cookery to someone who frequently visits cooking sites).
You can choose to disable, or selectively turn off, our cookies and/or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect you ability to interact with our site as well as other websites; this could include the inability to login to services provided by our web site and other web sites.
