This site uses Google Analytics to track which pages are popular and where people come from in order to find this site.
This information is very useful, particularly when it comes to seeing where some of my readers have come from and where they’re located (Hi, visitors from the BBC and the Department of Health) and I’d very much like to have as much of it as possible, but if you really want to opt out then you can do so via Google.
This site displays adverts from Google Adsense, in the possibly vain hope that people might find them interesting enough to click on and thus deposit a few virtual coppers in my account. By default, that includes adverts tailored to your interests and web browsing habits. I don’t get to see any of that, but Google does.
You can manage cookie settings for Google Adense, including opting out of the cookies which control targetted browsing, at the Adsense Settings page.
This site uses Disqus to manage comments. Using Disqus will set a cookie; there’s no way to opt out of that other than simply not commenting.
This site uses content from external sources, such as YouTube. Some of these may set cookies. Again, you can control these cookies via the preferences on those sites.
