What Information Do We Collect And How It Is Used?


My blog and third party services I use to run my blog (like Google Analytics) use cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer (or other devices used for browsing the internet) by most websites so the site can recognize you as a visitor. You can decline the cookies used on this site using your web browser if you wish, but it may affect your experience of this site. You can learn more about cookies at 

Affiliate Links

I participate in Amazon Associates Programme. If you follow a link to Amazon from this blog with my referral code in it and then make a purchase, I receive a small percentage for the referral. If you click on an affiliate link from my blog, Amazon may install a cookie to track that your visit came from this site.

I also participate in various affiliate marketing programs. Any link to those sites may earn advertising fees at no cost to you.


Occasionally I am sent products or asked to try out a service in return for giving a review. All my reviews are my honest opinion of the item or items in question. I also review things that I have paid for myself, but are just things that I like and think my readers may like too.
