I also use a feature of your browser called a “cookie” to assign identification to your computer that may be placed by me or a third party with whom we partner. Cookies allow us to better understand your preferences and personalize the content on my site to give you a better overall experience. The unique user ID contained within your cookie automatically identifies your computer—but not you—to my servers every time you visit my Site. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user, but may be combined with identity information in my log files. You can turn off the cookie feature by using your browser preference options, but you may not be able to utilise some of the features or services on our Site(s) properly. Current versions of many Web browsers offer enhanced user controls for the placement and duration of cookies. Search for “cookies” under your web browser’s help menu for more information on the cookie management features available to you.

However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers

Pixel Tags:

I may also collect information through the use of “pixel tags” on my site and in email messages I may send to you that may be placed by me or a third party with whom we partner. Pixel tags, also known as “web beacons,” are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient’s computer will access my server to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing me to record and store, along with the recipient’s email address, the date and time the recipient viewed the email message, the fact that the recipient’s email program is capable of receiving HTML-encoded email, and other standard logging information. The pixel tag may also see or read cookies. Will Edridge may use pixel tags in order to measure and understand traffic better, to track visitor behaviour to improve user experience, and for tracking promotional and marketing campaign response, among others. You can disable the pixel tag feature by changing your browser settings to omit images and disable Javascript; or there are commercial software packages available that can omit pixel tags and most advertisements.

Targeted Advertising; Do Not Track Signals:

Some web browsers offer a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal that is a HTTP header field indicating your preference regarding tracking or cross-site user tracking. Although I am currently unable to honour DNT signals, I do not collect personal information when you visit my Site unless you provide such information to me.
