Log files and cookies are used to record anonymous traffic data and non personally identifiable information on the pages visitors access. Where available, some visitor data (such as age, gender, and interests) is collected with Google Analytics to enable demographics and interests reporting to help find out more about this website’s audience in order to determine how best to improve the site.
If you would rather not be tracked in this way on any website, you can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads via Ad Settings. You can also opt out of Google Analytics tracking.
If you choose to join the website mailing list, your e-mail address & any other info you choose to provide is also collected. Your e-mail address will never be published or shared with any third party, with the exception of the email marketing software providers used to send the email newsletters, currently Mailchimp. Your e-mail address is used solely to notify you occasionally of new website features, content or special offers. You may unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of each e-mail, or by getting in touch via the contact page.
Blog comments and shop reviews use the third party service Disqus. So if you choose to comment on a blog post or review a store, your data is stored and managed by them. If you have queries in relation to these, you can contact Disqus support.
Advertising & Affiliate Marketing Disclosure
I want to keep all content free and without intrusive adverts. But I also need ways to support the time & costs associated with this website.
Some links throughout the website are affiliate links. This means that I may receive a small commission if you purchase from certain websites which I link to.
A small number of listings in the shops directory might also be marked as sponsored. This means that these stores have paid to enhance their listing by highlighting it or moving it near the top of relevant pages. Inclusion in the directory is free for all stores. I have full editorial control over shop inclusion, categorisation and all associated content. This is not influenced by any payments received.
Finally, I am a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.
