  • Although we don’t presently use it, the Google AdSense service is an advertising medium that uses a DoubleClick cookie to serve more relevant ads across the web and limit the number of times that a given ad is shown to you. Such ads seem to be an annoying and intrusive modern necessity for online businesses, but nevertheless, I personally use uBlock Origin and AdBlock Plus as browser extensions on my computers and NordVPN with CyberSec automatically enabled on my mobile devices.

  • Although also not presently relevant to this site, the template provided by https://www.cookiepolicygenerator.com/ that I extrapolated from suggests that I might as well state that, in the event we should ever have several partners advertise on our behalf, affiliate tracking cookies simply allow us to see if our customers have come to the site through one of our partner sites. Thus, we can credit them appropriately and, where applicable, allow our affiliate partners to provide any bonus that they may provide you for making a purchase.
