Cookie Policy

This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. Nearly every website in the known universe uses cookies. In general, they¬†are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As this website doesn’t use a shopping cart (I prefer to say “basket” or “trolley” as I am not an American) and as I honestly couldn’t give the smallest stuff about Google Analytics, the cookies won’t be used for that. They will however be used if you click external links, such as ones to Pen & Sword or the British Newspaper Archive. But these are trusted links and hopefully won’t cause any problems. I’m a nice person, really.

As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. 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.

Because human existence is hemmed about by irony, the Cookie Policy plug-in itself uses a cookie, so that it remembers not to show you the cookie bar each time you visit. You have 30 days before it expires. Use that time well.
