privacy & cookie PolicyI wish this was a delightful page about all the cookies that I make for the Blogger Babies, 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 the 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 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 our “In The News” reviews than anything else, which I'm not so sure is a good thing seeing as we report on some awful levels of abuse 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 Portugal (Olá).

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.

This is why it seems like I'm being followed by adverts for SimplyBe and Kiddicare. I really need to stop online shopping.

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.

Of course, 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.

Scratch that. Whilst I'm here I better mention some other bits too and to try and be as transparent as possible.
