Site information and help
By following good practices in design and coding, I’ve tried to make this site easy to use and accessible to everyone — no matter what browsing software or assistive technology you may be using. If you find something that needs improvement to make the site even more accessible, please let me know.
Privacy & cookies
This site complies with the UK Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 as amended March 2004 and May 2011. You may browse the site without providing any personal data whatever, and I don’t collect any personal data about you, unless you give it voluntarily — for example, by filling in the contact form. If you do provide personal information, I will use it only to reply to the question or comment you send. I won’t give your name, email address or any other personal data to any third party without your knowledge.
This web site makes use of a maximum of four cookies. (A cookie is a tiny file containing only letters and numbers that web sites place on your computer if your web browser settings permit it.) The cookies used by my web site are first-party, “analytical” cookies. They help me to count the number of visitors to the site; and to understand better how they arrive at and navigate through it, how long they spend visiting pages, and how often they return. This helps me to improve the content on the site and the way that it works; for example, by making sure that visitors are finding what they need easily.
These cookies neither store nor expose any personal data about you, and neither I nor anyone else can identify you personally from the information in the cookies. If you would like to learn more about these cookies, how to recognise them, and how to opt out of them if you wish, then please read the full statement on cookies.
Copyright to the design of this web site, the underlying code (HTML, CSS, etc.) that makes it work, and original graphics and text lies with me, Keith W Bell, and all rights are reserved. You may not copy or reproduce in any form the design, code or content of this site — but you wouldn’t want to do anything so banal and uninspired anyway, would you? You may print pages from this site for personal use, but not for public distribution or commercial purposes.
Copyright to the photographs shown on this site lies with the individual copyright holders. These are set out, along with the photographers’ details, on the photo credits and copyrights page.
Design standards & practices
I have written the code for the pages on this site in accordance with the emerging HTML5 and CSS Level 3 specifications published by the World Wide Web Consortium. Every page meets Conformance Level Double-A of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.
By following these standards and practices, I aim to ensure that the pages on my web site are compatible with current and future web browsers, and to cater for assistive technologies employed by disabled internet users.
If you’re really interested, I’ve written up some more comprehensive technical details.
