What we do not do
We DO NOT track your internet use or use tracking cookies.
We DO NOT ever pass any personal or marketing details to any other person or website
* We recommend that you configure your browser to wipe cookies when it is closed. This is safer and sensible.
* We DO NOT support the use of 'third party cookies' (the ones that enable other companies to work out what you look at, what you might buy or track you and your interests around the internet).
* Flash cookies
. You might not even be aware of a new generation of Flash super-cookie. These are insidious, persistent and do not obey the usual 'cookie rules'. Flash cookies don't expire, they can be shared across any websites and they offer industry and market research virtually unlimited storage on your own machine. They enable individual user-tracking and marketing data-storage around the Internet.
For internet browsing we ourselves use a free, Firefox add-on called Better Privacy
to refuse or remove these potentially unpleasant Flash Super-Cookies.
