When you visit a Web site (ours or anybody else's), the Web site's server logs indicate where you came from--e.g., "earthlink.com," "yahoo.com," "google.com", businessinsider.com etc. However, the server log doesn't indicate who you are (even though some logs record your IP address for tracking purposes) and we have no way of knowing your identity.
We are not interested in your identity. We are very interested in how you use the website: which pages you visit, how long you remain on the page, which links you click on the page. This helps us improve the website. If we don't know how you use the website, we can't make it better.
You can disable cookies in your browser. (See your browser's help file to learn how.) But, disabling or deleting cookies can have unintended consequences, such as forcing you to log in manually when you visit forums, social-networking sites, online editions of newspapers, and other membership-based sites.
Facebook, Twitter and other social networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
To allow visitors to discuss our blog articles and some web pages we use a discussion system called Disqus.
To do so we embed code that Disqus provide and we do not control ourselves. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.
Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you login via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.
Disqus will know what pages you viewed in our site and what you wrote on those comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people.
Occasionally we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website to enable you to book hotels, cars, holiday packages and sign up for our newsletter. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.

We seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
