The Small Print

Legal Shizzle, Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and General Arse Covering Blah Blah Blah Stuff

Oh goody, the small print.  Thanks for stopping by.

In summary: please be nice, don’t steal from me, don’t take anything I post seriously enough to consider it advice and please, please don’t sue me.

(Not that you would dream of doing otherwise, for if you are here, you must be lovely.)

Thank you!

Longer version for those that like that kind of thing:

Privacy Policy

Your privacy and personal information is important to us.

You can use this site without giving any personal information.

As is standard on websites, we do use tracking tools like Google Analytics to help work out which pages are the most popular.  Tracking sites will give information such as the country in which you are browsing, but they won’t identify you personally to us.

You need to voluntarily give us some personal information in order to do things like comment on blogposts, submit feedback and sign up to our email newsletter.

Our email newsletter is run by an external company’s software.  You may unsubscribe at any time.  We will not sell your data to other companies.  In the unlikely event this changes in the future (e.g. somebody offers to buy this company outright), we would let you know in advance and give you the option to opt out before the sale went through.  This isn’t likely, but you never know…

Cookies are wonderful, but not as good as biscuits.  They are especially nice dunked in a nice cup of tea.

Cookies also help some parts of the website to run.  For example, the tracking software we use to help check which parts of the site people most enjoy will use an anonymous tracking cookie to help deliver the information.  Cookies may also be in place to save information you have put into forms so that you don’t have to retype it another time (e.g. username).

By using the site, you are agreeing that it may send you cookies from time to time.

You are free to disable cookies in your browser, but be aware that not all parts of the site will work so well if you do.

An extra message for anybody who has read all the way to the bottom

I’m really surprised and grateful you have got this far.  Although I do worry that you aren’t getting out, much.  Have you considered a hobby?  Tiddlywinks is quite popular.  Collecting buttons?  Joining your local theatre group?  I hope you have a lovely day, and just for you, I have posted a picture of a squirrel eating an ice cream.
