Cookie Policy

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites store on your computer to help remember information about you (usually to make your experience better). For example, if you ever click “remember me” on a login page, the website uses a cookie to remember you.

The Cookies I Use

I use very few cookies and none of them are personally identifying unless I specifically tell you otherwise. Disabling cookies will not break my website. However, you may be annoyed because the “accept our cookie policy” and “subscribe for blog updates” banners will keep appearing, no matter how many times you dismiss them. This is because I have to use cookies to remember if you’ve seen it before.

Third-Party Cookies

Sometimes, I need to use scripts or services from other websites. Some of these (including but not limited to embedded Youtube videos and Google reCAPTCHA) set cookies. This cookie policy does not apply to them and you should see their individual cookie policies.

Disabling Cookies

It is possible to disable cookies in your browser settings (the method differs by the browser, look up yours). Although this will not, for the most part, break my site (see above), it may break other websites, and I don’t recommend you disable cookies, as they’re usually just to help you out.

I would, however, recommend blocking cross-site cookies, as these can track you between the different sites you visit. I use and recommend the Brave browser for this.

More Information

I hope this cleared up any questions you had. To sum up: I hardly use cookies, and never with personal information unless I specifically tell you; some external scripts or services may set cookies, so be careful about that; and it is possible to disable cookies, but you probably won’t like the result.

If you still have questions, you can contact me and I’ll work to help you resolve them.

This policy is effective as of March 26 2020.
