Privacy and Cookie Policy

This site is owned and operated by Jane Wilson, a UX Analyst from Dundee, Scotland.


A key component of UX is building trust with your end users, as such, I take people’s privacy seriously. As such, I’m not going to rent, sell or trade email lists with anyone else for marketing purposes. However, in the interests of being entirely transparent, I’m going to share with you how I collect visitors personal data online and how it is treated after collection.

How your data is collected

Visitors to the site are tracked by Google Analytics, to collect standard log information and details of users patterns and behaviours. This is done to track the number of visitors to various parts of the site, page bounce rates, and how long users stay on the site. All information is anonymised so it can’t be traced back to any natural person. You can find more information on how our cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy (see below).

If at any point I do need personalised information, you’ll be told exactly what is needed, why, and how it will be protected.

Third Parties

The only other organisations I share your data with are organisations who help the site to function efficiently and within the law.  Such partners may include:

  • IT service providers such as Cloudflare and bHosts
  • Regulators and law enforcement agencies (if there is a legal reason to share your data with them)
  • Search engine operators that help understand how to improve our visibility online

Amending your data

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to [email protected] detailing what you would like to view and how you would like to be contacted with this information.


This site only uses standard WordPress and Google Analytics cookies. Cookies are small files saved onto your hard drive by a website. Google Analytics uses these to track visits to the site and how you move around it. You can delete and block these through your browser but it may impact how the site works.

By using this site and/or making an account, you consent to the use of these cookies.

WordPress Cookies

After login, WordPress sets the wordpress_logged_in_[hash] cookie, which indicates when you’re logged in, and who you are, for most interface use.

WordPress also sets a few wp-settings-{time}-[UID] cookies. The number on the end is your individual user ID from the users database table. This is used to customise your view of admin interface, and possibly also the main site interface.

When you comment on the blog posts, you’ll have cookies stored on your computer. This is purely a convenience so you won’t need to login again. Altogether three are set for commenters:

  • comment_author_{HASH}
  • comment_author_email_{HASH}
  • comment_author_url_{HASH}

These are set to expire a little under one year from the time they’re set.

Chewy Cookies Recipe

Congrats for getting this far down! Have a recipe for some cookies as a reward.


2-1/2 sticks Butter, Softened
2 cups sugar
250 grams plain flour
1 teaspoon baking Soda
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstartch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
170 grams unsalted butter (melted cooled slightly)
250 grams packed brown sugar (dark or light)
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
70 grams granulated sugar


  1. Mix together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, whisk the melted butter and brown sugar together until no brown sugar lumps are left.
  3. Whisk in the egg.
  4. Whisk in the vanilla.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together. The dough will be very soft, yet thick.
  6. Cover the dough and chill for 2 hours, or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory.
  7. Take the dough out of the fridge and allow to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes if you had it chilling for more than 2 hours.
  8. Preheat the oven to 160C degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  9. Pour the granulated sugar into a bowl.
  10. Take 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball, then roll into the sugar. Place 3 inches apart on the baking sheets.
  11. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently press the top of the cookie down with the back of a utensil or even use your fingers. You’re trying to obtain a crinkly top.
  12. Place back into the oven for 2-4 more minutes. The total time these cookies are in the oven for is 10-13 minutes. The cookies will be puffy and still appear very soft in the middle.
  13. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
