- Affiliate advertising - my website uses affiliate advertising. That means if you follow a link on my site to another site and then buy something, I might get commission on that sale. This is used mainly for promoting my own books, but also in advertising panels and links on selected pages. Revenue from affiliate sales helps to support the cost of operating this website. Affiliate programmes I use include Amazon and E-junkie.
- Keyword-based advertising - In the sidebar of my website I display advertising from Google, which supports the cost of operating this website. You can find Google's policy in relation to advertising here.
The advertisers (Google, Amazon, E-junkie) may be able to track your surfing across different websites, but will not be able to identify you unless you've told them who you are. They do not pass any personal or profiling information on to me, except for some basic aggregate statistics (number of clicks to Amazon, products ordered at Amazon following a visit I referred, and patterns of browsing this website).
