Amazon Affiliate Scheme
As per the Amazon Operating Agreement I have to state that I, Rosie Nixon am a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn commission income by advertising and linking to amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.es, amazon.fr, and amazon.it.

If I get paid to review a product or piece of software, or given a product or piece of software for free in exchange for a review, I will always disclose this first and foremost. I will always give my candid, honest opinion. I will not agree to review a product/service if I am briefed on what to write beforehand.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to "remember" you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a "session cookie") or for multiple repeat visits (using a "persistent cookie"). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as "first party cookies"), or by other websites who serve up content on that site ("third party cookies").
Cookies on this website
These are the cookies that are essential for websites to perform their basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions, as well as to save the contents of virtual "carts" on sites that have an e-commerce functionality:
sid - temporary session cookie identifier, used for login sessions and shopping cart
tif_cem - temporary session cookie for current email, used for secure albums requiring email login
tx1_EGS - temporary session cookie storing search term for album searches
tx1_fmm - temporary session cookie allowing viewing desktop site from mobile & vice versa
Unless otherwise noted below, we do not use persistent cookies, nor cookies for optional functionality, AB testing, performance, advertising and so on.
Third Party/Embedded Content
This website may make use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors. These include social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content from YouTube and Vimeo, or tracking services such as Google Analytics. As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties, and used by them to track your online activity. We have no direct control over the information that is collected by these cookies.

Web beacons and other tracking technologies
Both websites and HTML e-mails may also contain other tracking technologies such as "web beacons". These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, the web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
