Privacy Policy

This is the privacy policy web site, you can find the current version at

Thanks for visiting my website and learning more about the privacy policy I have put in place. I run this website completely alone and to help recoup the loss I have in running it I allow advertisements to be placed on this website through Google's Adsense program.

Access Logs
Firstly, I do have a log of visitors to my website. This is fairly standard and allows me to identify errors and usage. These logs are stored for 60 days before being wiped from the server (I do no have offline backups). If in the unlikely event that I was ordered by court order from my country (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) to store or present parts or all of these logs then I would comply within the law. Other than that I will not share these log files with anyone.
The logs are stored on my webserver in a protected directory that only I as site administrator have access to. The logs include what IP address accessed my file, where it was referred from, what browser it used and a timestamp. A full example of what each log contains is below:
#Date: 2012-02-26

I do not use any cookies on my website, but I allow third parties to do so.

In order to generate revenue to partially recoup loss I allow adverts to be placed on this website using Google's Adsense program
As a result of your visit to my site, ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information.
Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to this website.
Google uses DART cookies (see below) which enables it and its partners to serve ads to users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
I allow advertisements from Google Certified Ad Networks and by default allow new networks as they are added. I currently block no networks.
A list of vendors can be found here:
You may visit those websites to opt out of cookies (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability).
Users can opt out of some, but not all, of these cookies in one location at the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website at

While Google often shows you ads based on the content of the page you are viewing, they also show some ads based on the types of websites you visit, view, or where you interact with an ad or other Google product supported by Google's advertising services. In doing this, Google doesn't know your name or any other personal information about you. Google simply recognises the number stored in your browser on the DoubleClick cookie, and shows ads related to the interest and inferred demographic categories associated with that cookie. Google doesn't create categories, or show ads, based on sensitive topics such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.

DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (interest based targeting). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses non personally identifiable information. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings (or incognito browsing), or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the advertising opt-out page
