Cookie Policy Summary

Three types of cookie are used on Bricks and Brass:

  1. content cookies: Cookies are used in our Forum so if you join it, cookies will be used by the software to help you follow the threads you are interested in, recent posts etc. Cookies are also used in places where you search for something in the site.
  2. advertising cookies: Bricks and Brass is funded largely by Google ads provided under their Adwords/Adsense programmes. Without them, we will have to consider pay-to-view charging. We would much prefer to keep the site free, and will do our best to keep adverts as supportive of the content rather than interfering with your experience. As of April 2012, Google has not released tools to help website owners provide facilities so visitors can opt out of receiving cookies.
  3. analytics cookies: Bricks and Brass uses Google tools to understand how many people visit particular pages; this will guide future development and helps us market the site. Google uses cookies as part of that process. As of April 2012, Google has not released tools to help website owners provide facilities so visitors can opt out of receiving cookies.

We would be very grateful if visitors to Bricks and Brass tolerate cookies. If you wish to know more and to opt out of receiving cookies, please see Google's policy.
