Privacy Policy and Cookies

The EU Cookie Law is the EU e-Privacy Directive that came into effect on 26th May 2012. According to this law, we need to ask your permission to use cookies. Simply click "I Agree" on the bar in the middle of your screen.

The silly thing is, if you disagree with a site using cookies, that site needs to use a cookie to remember that you disagreed with using cookies. Does that make sense? No, I don't think so either. Anyway, cookies currently in use on this site are those used by Google, Facebook, AddThis, Disqus,, Skimlinks and Statcounter. These give the information that somebody from country X visited this site on date Y, using browser Z, and spent J number of minutes on each page. We do not know your home address, telephone number, age, sexual preferences, or ethnic origin, and frankly couldn't care less. If you agree that this site may store cookies on your computer, click the "I Agree" button on the bar. You may then freely browse as many pages as you like, and hopefully you'll gain some information you did not previously have. If you do not agree, go away now.

In the case where a cookie is inserted by a third party (see list above), information and consent do not need to be implemented twice. Hence, if the ad network already provided information and received consent from the web user, the website that displays the ad does not need to repeat this operation.
