Firstly I want to thank you for choosing to visit & view my site - I hope you enjoy what you see & find it Interesting & Easy to use.

From Sunday the 27th of May 2012  - there's a new law regarding the use of cookies on ALL Web Sites.   Unfortunately this law is quite vague & KNOWING WHETHER OR NOT YOU COMPLY OR EVEN HOW TO COMPLY is far from obvious.

I can say that as far as I am concerned - THIS SITE DOES COMPLY !!!

As I've mentioned elsewhere on the site - My knowledge of Site-Building is limited  ( but slowly growing ).  The majority of my site  has been created using pre-defined templates etc.  ( although I'm getting to grips with basic HTML & so I'm replacing templates with my own HTML command structure codings ).

When I view the statistics generated - I have 3 categories available -

 1:   Total Visitors by :  This Hour, Last Hour, Today, This Week, Last Week, This Month, Last Month, This Year & Last Year.

 2:   Totals by  Browsers & Operating Systems etc :  - BUT as it's control coding has not been updated since 2005 - any system released after 2005 shows up wrong  ( ie Windows Vista & 7 both show up as Windows NT etc. )  so I don't use it - I only mention it in the interests of honesty & transparency.

 3:   Totals by Country :  - which I find quite useful - it's amazing to see the reach of my site - from Africa to Russia - quite impressive when you consider I live in a mid sized town of 50,000 in the UK & it's only a Personal Site.   I DON'T do Twitter OR Facebook    The ONLY external Links INTO my site are printed on my Business Cards ) & NO ADVERTISING !!!

I've contacted the owner of Free-Counters.Co.UK by e-mail to ask if his counters use cookies & He assured me that - other than the STATISTICAL DATA  - I've mentioned above - ★★  NO PERSONAL DATA IS COLLECTED  ! ! !  ★★

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED about WHO is accessing your Browser's Data etc. I recommend you try "GHOSTERY" @ http://www.ghostery.com/  It's a Browser PLUGIN )  -  I use it on BOTH of my Browsers  ( IE 11 & COMODO Dragon )  & find it quite useful to see just who's looking - it displays a tidy list in the top right corner of the screen - for the duration of your choosing & IT WORKS !!!   It's user Friendly & it has it's own settings page as well.

Note: I have NO CONTROL over the content of these EXTERNAL Links !
