Cookies and Privacy


We do not collect information which can identify the individual personal details of users accessing our sites, or identify the personal details of individual bloggers aggregated on our sites, beyond what either choose to make public or actively give us.

What are cookies?
Cookies and web beacons are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device on your next visit.

Cookies can serve many different functions. For example, they can help a website to remember your username and preferences or analyse how well a website is performing.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how you arrived at and use a website, or a user’s general location.

How we use cookies
Generally, we don’t serve many cookies to most users.

If you leave a comment below a story we will serve a cookie to remember the details you’ve given us so it is easier for you to leave a comment next time.

Currently we don’t encourage registration, but for our users that are registered we serve a cookie to remember their login details.

We may also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online.

Third party cookies
We use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic and Google Adsense to deliver advertising. Both Google services uses cookies.

Advertising Cookies
Our advertisers use cookies to serve you with advertisements that they believe are relevant to you and your interests. For example, if you read a number of articles on decorating on this or on other sites, a DIY store might infer you are interested in this topic and serve you with its paint advertisements. You might see these advertisements on this website and on other sites that you visit. However, we do not tell our advertisers who you are.
