A particularly silly EU directive requires me to state if cookies are used on my web sites and what they do to invade visitor privacy etc. This is on a par with asking the Borgias if the food at their banquet contains nuts, since there are far more dangerous and intrusive technologies out there, but never mind...
As always a reminder that I am no longer able to make changes to my old NTLWorld web site, and really don't know what goes on under the hood there, including cookies - PLEASE don't use it.
- To the best of my knowledge neither of the web sites I currently maintain use any cookies at all; I'm not actually competent to program them, and there would be no point since you don't have to log in etc. anyway.
- I can't make this statement for the web hosting company I use, Nativespace, they may be using cookies for some reason but I haven't asked them to.
- Registered users may be given passwords for temporary access to file downloads - their use probably involves cookies, but this is handled entirely by Nativespace, the hosting company, and I do not give them information on the identity of users with password access.
Finally, I'm repeatedly asked to carry advertising, presumably to make money by tracking hits. I will NEVER do this, or carry any form of paid link; I really don't need a few pence badly enough to want to invade anyone's privacy.
