Not Interesting

I’ve just put together a page about the cookies this site uses and what the privacy policy is. None of it is interesting but I think it might be a legal requirement. There’s a European Law, which might not apply on 1st Jan 2021, that means I need to explain to you how I use the data I collect from you. This is an easy question to answer.

I don’t.

The most I do is use Google Analytics to see how often this site is looked at and from where in the world people seem to visit. This doesn’t require cookies on your computer. But I think this site will put a cookie on your machine. If I’m honest there are about four regular readers of this and I know them personally. Everyone else stumbles across this site and I very much doubt they find it interesting. Some people find this place and try to hack into the control panel! There were thirty such attempts in the last week. I really have no idea why someone would want to do that. There’s nothing in here except the effort and time I have put into creating this website, which is nudging into the thousands of hours I suspect. The last communication I wrote took between ninety minutes and two hours.

This site isn’t that interesting. As I say on the home page it’s a vanity project really.

Cookie Wookie


Having looked into the cookie law thing a bit I have pretty much confirmed that this website uses only essential cookies. These are defined as those that retain the choices you make to view this website. If you have the mobile version turned on or off or if you are logged into the administration area (only me doing that though) then uses cookies to allow you to do that.
This website does not, to the very best of my knowledge, do any tracking of user data or anything like that.
So your consent is not needed according to EU Law.
If you would prefer to delete your cookies or learn about what they might do then you can visit this website.

This whole law thing is quite interesting because I can remember the trouble caused when cookies were introduced to browsers in the mid-nineties [June 1994]. It has taken 18 years for the law to catch up with the technological improvement. That’s quite a long lag-time. Would it take that long if porn could just be downloaded freely and easily? Oh, yes, it would!
