Some of you may have noticed a new message about “cookies” when coming onto this blog over the last 24 hours, and a new little symbol in the top right of the page. This is because EU law now requires websites to ask permission before “cookies” are used – there’s more info HERE if anyone is interested in reading about it. Virtually all websites use them, mainly (I think) to remember what a visitor has seen or done on the site before, and in my own case, since it’s a WordPress blog, the software uses them without any instruction from me anyway. I myself have added a counter facility to tell me how many people are looking in, what they’re interested in, etc.
There’s nothing sinister at all in any of this, so I guarantee you that in respect of this blog, you have absolutely nothing to fear in clicking yes to the options. You can ignore the request, of course, which affects me a tiny bit, and might make the blog less easily readable for you, but will have no effect other than this. It’s the EU that makes me even have to post this! Thanks for reading, and ignore or click yes as you please … but at least in the knowledge that you are safe either way.
