I / Messyblog.uk will collect and store information that is generated automatically as you use the site. For example, I may collect information about whether you read my posts on a phone, laptop or tablet and what country you are visiting my site from.

I also may use a standard feature called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes.
