Logs / Statistics
User information such as browser, IP, and page visits may be recorded. This information is used for the monitoring and administration of the website. Third parties will not receive copies of data that could be used to identify individuals, but may be given statistical overviews. In other words, third parties may be given information like how many visitors the site received in a month or what percentage use a certain browser. They will not be given information like IP addresses or individual visit records, as this could be linked back to a specific individual.
Many of the items reviewed on the site are free review copies. This is noted at the bottom of reviews, where applicable. Reviews without a statement were not provided for review purposes (for example, I bought them, found them on the street, or got them for my birthday). Anyone offering review copies does so on the understanding that it will not affect review ratings. The items will receive an honest review.
Physical review copies will be kept, passed to another reviewer, recycled, or donated to charity. I don’t sell review copies. Digital review copies will either be kept or deleted. I don’t pass on files to other people.
I’m a member of some affiliate programmes, which means I earn a small amount of money if someone purchases an item through an affiliate link. My current affiliate programmes are: Amazon US, Amazon UK, Smashwords, Zazzle and Society6. Other store links are not affiliate links.
