Hamel.com cookie policy


We use cookies to improve the experience and performance of this website. Essentially we use cookies to
remember the state of the pages so that we can show them 'as you left them' when you return.

The only cookie that we use to store personal information is an optional one - it is used to remember your email address if (and only if) you choose 'remember' on the login section (it doesn't remember your password). We do not use cookies to track what you are doing, nor for advertising purposes. We do not allow third-party cookies.

You can set your browser settings to turn all cookies off (the website will not work as intended if you do). See below to so see how you can do this.

Ironically, we will also use a cookie to register if you have accepted our cookie policy!
