A Mothers Ramblings: Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

I wish this was a delightful page about all the cookies that I make but instead it's about little bits of information that through the magic of the internet makes it way from my website to your computer. If you want to read a proper description of what a HTTP Cookie is click that link and it will take you to Wikipedia where some clever people have explained it so that even I can understand it. Anyway, because the EU like to make sure that everyone has their own privacy protected they have made a new law that says I have to tell you that I use cookies on my website.

It's true I do, I use them in Google Analytics which helps me know who reads what on my blog, using what device and where they are from in the world. This helps me to know things like more people come to read my Barbie film reviews than anything else, which I'm not so sure is a good thing and also that the majority of people who read this blog are from the UK but that there are some readers in Peru (¡Hola!), China (你好) and The Republic of Yemen (مرحبا).

I also use cookies with my comment system (so that it can remember who you are the next time you visit if you have filled it in before) and the Google adverts that I have in my sidebar will read other cookies you have had left on your computer to advertise something relevant to you. If you don't want Google to leave cookies on your computer then you can download an add on which helps you opt-out. They explain it better than I can.

If you don't like cookies then you can always read my blog via your favourite reader as I think that is a way round it or you could just not visit here (Which would make me sad, so don't choose that option) or you could just never comment and as soon as you have read what you want to press Ctrl + Alt + Delete which should take you to the bit in your settings to delete cookies.

Now I'm off to make some tasty cookies.


Actually scratch that. Whilst I'm here I better mention some other bits too.
