When someone visits, we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not personally identify anyone.

When we do want to collect personally identifiable information – for things like our newsletters – we will be upfront about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it as explained in our Privacy Policy.

Cookies from Buzzpods
Cookies are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site and to help deliver adverts correctly.

We only deploy standard cookies that enable our server software to work, in our case we use WordPress.

Cookies from our suppliers
We use Google DoubleClick to serve adverts across our sites and have no direct control of the cookies it sets. You can read all about Google’s advertising cookies here.

You can still receive adverts without being the Google cookie being set. You can opt out here.

We also use Amazon to serve adverts across our site and utilise Amazon’s affiliate network. We have no direct control of the cookies it sets but you can read all about Amazon’s advertising cookies here. You can also read about opting out on that page.

Some of our sites use Google Analytics for tracking and reporting of site performance. We have also implemented some Google Analytics features based on display advertising e.g. Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. You can opt out here.

Some of our advertisers use other Ad Servers which may set cookies too. We can’t directly control their cookies but you can, by taking control of your cookie management. Read how, here.

Some advertisers behaviourally target you using retargeting cookies across sites. You should be aware of how to manage this yourself. This is a decent resource to help you.

Please be assured that we only use cookies where necessary and as explained previously, it is either to enable the core functions of the website to work, better understand our visitors and the content that is popular in order to deliver a better website and to deliver adverts or affiliate links in order to support the cost of running the website.
