Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
You can learn more about online advertising at YourOnlineChoices. You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies here. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, including ourselves pay for these adverts. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a so called “remarketing cookie” during your visit. Don’t worry we are unable to proactively reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymous. You can opt out of these advertising cookies at anytime as explained above.
If you have any questions regarding this Policy or believe we have not adhered to the above criteria, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
