Third party analytics are used to track and measure usage of this site so that I can continue to produce engaging content. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site or pages you visit which helps us to understand how I can improve the site for you.
From time to time I test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When I am still testing new features these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience whilst on the site whilst ensuring I understand which optimisations my users appreciate the most.
As I sell products it’s important for me to understand statistics about how many of the visitors to my site actually make a purchase and as such this is the kind of data that these cookies will track. This is important to you as it means that I can accurately make business predictions that allow me to monitor my advertising and product costs to ensure the best possible price.
The Google AdSense service I use to serve advertising uses a DoubleClick cookie to serve more relevant ads across the website and limit the number of times that a given ad is shown to you.
For more information on Google AdSense see the official Google AdSense privacy FAQ.
Several partners advertise on my behalf and affiliate tracking cookies simply allow to see if my customers have come to the site through one of my partner sites so that I can credit them appropriately and where applicable allow my affiliate partners to provide any bonus that they may provide you for making a purchase.
Hopefully, that has clarified things for you, and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on my site.
However, should you still be looking for more information, please get in touch with me.
