How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Remarketing

Gishwhes may use Google remarketing for promotional purposes. This means that Mr. Google may post a potential ad we promote on its own website or on any 3rd-party websites that have kindly and generously offered Google to post ads on their websites. This is cool - as this means we might one day be on a website for kale mask creams. How does google work this sorcery? Through cookies… and not the yummy kinds you eat. These cookies are like Sauron’s eye that sees everything (except, for some strange reason, two hobbits one hundred yards from the entrance to Mt. Doom that conveniently has a welcoming open entrance and a sturdy rock ramp that leads to a ledge - no railing, sorry Gollum - where you can drop in a ring of power without melting your face off even though you’re only a couple hundred yards from an ocean of boiling lava). Anyway, these cookies see that you’ve visited our site (hi!) and then may tell other websites that you visit in the future that it’s okay to post an ad from us to you (you know just to remind you that we’re alive). So we kind of might follow you around the Internet, but not in a weird way, more in a hey-howya-doin-haven’t-seen-ya-in-awhile way. Also, we can’t see where you go after you leave our site - that’s your own biz. But Google can… just sayin’.

But fear not, you can always hide from us and Google by visiting Google’s Ad Settings. It’s like a Ring of Power that makes Frodo’s ring look like a $0.25 plastic grocery-store in a plastic bubble pink ring (not that it wouldn’t suck to have that).
