Analytics (anonymous visitor statistics) cookies
We use Google Analytics to review web traffic, not personal information about an individual.
To fund this website we work with small number of affiliate companies, as listed below. We use affiliate links to products, retailers and brands in certain posts and pages. Some of the advertising banners on this website are also for affiliate programmes to which we belong. If a visitor to this website clicks on one of these links or banners and buys products within a certain time period then we may earn a small commission.
By clicking on an affiliate link, or banner adverts, you will be served with a tracking cookie by the relevant affiliate company. These links are therefore tracked by the affiliate companies who have their own individual privacy policies which you can view by clicking the links below:
