What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that can be placed on your device that allows me to recognize and remember you. It is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive or tablet or mobile device. When you visit my site, I may collect information from you automatically through cookies or similar technology.
This website uses Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the site. This allow me to know the website users behavior, using Google Analytic’s tool, and then to improve their navigation experience. I will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to my site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither I nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. I will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on my website.
You may choose to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically default to accept them, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on my website.
What types of cookies do I use?
Cookies that are used are referred to as “first-party cookies” and those that are used by my partners are “third-party cookies”. Because of how cookies work, my website cannot access third-party cookies; nor can other organisations access the data in the cookies I use on my website. There are more details about both in the following sections.
Performance - cookies which measure how often you visit my site and how you use them. I use this information to get a better sense of how my users engage with my journalism and to improve my site and apps, so that users have a better experience. For example, I collect information about which of my pages are most frequently visited, and by which types of users. I also use third-party cookies to help with performance. For example, the Google Analytics cookie gives me information such as your journey between pages and whether you have downloaded anything (details of how to opt out of it are below).
