Privacy Statement:
WHAT Are Cookies And HOW They Are Used on This Site

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites.

Our site uses two tools that need cookies: Google AdSense for advertisements and Google Analytics to help us understand how our users move in our site. If you're visiting our site outside of EEA (European Economic Area), Google's AdSense advertisements may use cookies to help identify your preferences so they can tailor advertisements for you. Users in EEA see only non-personalized ads that don't identify users in any way.

For further information, you can check Google's policy on using cookies.

You can disable any cookies already stored on your computer by using your browser settings. Disabling cookies won't affect using our site – only thing you may see is that the advertisements might not be functioning properly.

That's the gist of it. If you want even more information, the next part is a breakdown of the different types of cookies, which of these types our site uses and what they are used for.

Necessary Cookies

Definition: Strictly necessary for the operation of our website.
Amount: NONE.

At the moment, there are no strictly necessary cookies on our website, but we may add some in the future if we establish an online shop (our current shirt shop is managed by Threadless and is separate from this site), a login system, a forum or other such hootenannery. In such a case, this policy will be updated without further notice. These cookies will be used to make sure that those new features work and only necessary information contained in them will be shared with third parties.

Functional Cookies

Definition: Attempt to provide you with the best user experience.
Amount: NONE.

Our website used to have a little cookie informer thingie pop up when you first visited us. This kind of cookie is no longer needed because the informer itself is no longer needed. \(OvO)/

Targeting Cookies

Definition: Third parties (Google) recognizing that you have visited this site.
Amount: SOME.

This website will:

  • Allow our advertisers (Google Adsense) to tailor advertisements for you. (Except for EEA users, who only see non-personalized ads.)
  • Allow our analytics (Google Analytics) to help us understand how our readers use the site.

Google AdSense

The following three paragraphs (about Google AdSense and DoubleClick cookie) do not concern EEA (European Economic Area) users. EEA users see only non-personalized ads that use cookies only for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting and to combat fraud and abuse – in other words, EEA users are not identified in any way for the purposes of displaying AdSense advertisements on our site.

Google AdSense uses cookies to serve ads based on your prior visits to this and other websites where their ads are displayed.

Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your visits to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings (assuming you have a Google Account). Alternatively, you can opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics uses cookies to report on user interactions on the site. For more information, see Google's policy on cookies in Analytics.

Enough!

If that was too much rambling for you, how about relaxing for a while by looking at actual delicious cookies!

Or you can clear your mind of cookies altogether and get to reading some comics!
