Cookies — When you visit this website

My site uses cookies, small bits of text that are stored by the browser you use when you visit this website. Your browser makes them available every time you visit a site again and makes it possible for this website to recognize your visit.

Like many website owners, I automatically collect technical information, such as your browser or the type of device you’re using, your operating system and IP address.
