Security & Privacy

This privacy policy is brief and written in plain English.

Security & Privacy

Your security and privacy are both very important. Google Analytics is used only to gauge content popularity and visitor counts but track far more data than that and certainly more than I require. I don't story any data relating to your visit myself. If I am able to find a viable alternative that anonymised data I will make the switch and amend this policy accordingly.

Affiliate links and ads are displayed to help to generate revenue and fund the running of the site and I aim to make this as transparent as possible.

When embedding content I will use the privacy enabled options where possible. Third parties may track you as a result of interacting with embedded content.


Scripts are used sparingly and I follow best practice to make things as fast as possible.


No matter what is linked to or embeded, I will do my best to use the cleanest version of the URL to avoid additional tracking and to give greater weight to the piece itself. While I have my own ideas for how fast 1 Thing A Week should perform, I also want to get you to the content I have linked to as quickly as possible.

Where possible, items that link to an affiliate are marked with a $.


1 Thing A Week does not drop any cookies itself however, some of the services used do. The cookies you can expect to see are listed below:

CloudFlareTo help protect 1 Thing A Week against attacks
Google AnalyticsHelps to gauge the size of 1 Thing A Week's audience

Some articles and notable items link to richer content which drop their own cookies. These include, but are not limited to:
