Privacy Policy

We recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit this site and how we safeguard your information.

Your Personal Details
There is nowhere on this site where it is possible for you to provide us with any personal information, including your name, address, email address or telephone number etc. unless you send this information to us independently, for example within an email. Any information sent to us independently is not considered to be subject to this website privacy policy.

Log Files
As with most other websites, we may collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files may include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
If we have any spare time, we spend it trying to improve this website, so unless we suspect that someone is attempting something malicious, it is extremely unlikely that we will ever even view this data.

This website contains links to other websites, directly and within adverts. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving to another website. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites as their privacy policies may differ from this site.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.
We have no responsibility or liability for the contents or reliability of any websites to which we provide a link and do not necessarily endorse the views expressed within them.

This site has nothing to do with pop-ups, adware, spyware, viruses or any other form of malware. If you get any of these while visiting our site, you probably have a pest or virus on your computer (and it didn't come from this site!).
Our site host is extremely diligent in ensuring that no malware can infect your computer as a result of you visiting this site.

The standard practice for this website (and almost all other websites) is to place cookies, (small data files), on whatever device you may use to view this site.
Cookies are essential for helping us deliver a high quality website for our visitors, and some collect information about browsing and buying behaviour, see below.

Google Advertising
We use Google Adsense to provide adverts to enrich this site as we believe them to be the safest and most trusted advertisers available. Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve adverts on this site. Here is an explanation from Google on how Google manages data in its ads products on sites like this one.

Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie and the Dart cookie enables it and its partners to serve adverts to users of this website based on their visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

Follow this link if you would like more information from Google about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies.

The DoubleClick cookie is used by Google in the adverts served on the websites of its partners, such as websites displaying AdSense adverts or participating in Google certified advert networks. When users visit a partner's website and either view or click on an advert, a cookie may be dropped on that end user's browser.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve adverts based on a user's prior visits to this and other websites.

Third-Party Advertising
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve adverts when you visit our website and so the cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve adverts on this site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services thought to be of interest to you.

Some of these third-party advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Scottish holiday adverts to someone in Scotland, for example) or showing certain adverts based on specific sites visited (such as showing kilt hire adverts to someone who frequents Scottish dance sites).

Disclosure Of Information To Outside Parties
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Your Consent
By using this website, you consent to our website privacy policy. If you do not consent, (or consent, then change your mind) you must disable cookies or refrain from using this site.

Deleting Cookies
If you want to control the information Google uses to show you ads, including opting out of the use of Google cookies for interest-based advertising, visit Google Ads Settings. You can also see how to opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies for interest based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.

Alternatively you can visit AboutCookies.org to see how to control cookies, cookie law and even a really good recipe for baking cookies. At AboutCookies.org you can also choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies in your browser settings. Lifewire may also be helpful to you to explain exactly how to delete cookies in every major browser.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie may be added. Depending on which cookies you disable, in general this and other sites may not operate properly if cookies are switched off. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts. For example, on this site you will probably find the YouTube videos don't play as they should.

You can set your web browser in such a way that cookies are generally prevented from being saved to your device and/or that you are asked each time whether you are in agreement with cookies being enabled. You can also at any time delete cookies that have been enabled again. You can find out how all this works in detail from your browser's help function.
