The site was started in personal webspace on CompuServe in 1996 and relaunched on Freeserve (later Wanadoo) in 1998. The domain name was changed to bobmockford.co.uk in July of that year. After moving to new hosts in 2000, the site layout was redesigned in 2005 and it was given a fresh new look in 2015. In September 2017, after problems with the previous hosts, the site was moved wth the new domain bob-mockford.co.uk. Don't worry if you still see a link to the old domain bobmockford.co.uk. This will take you to the current site.

Data Collection
I have no means of identifying who visits my website nor where they are located. If you click on links to other sites, these may ask you to register your location. How you answer is up to you.
Your browser may indicate that this website is 'Not secure'. This does not indicate any risk, simply that the address starts with http and not https. A site only needs to be secured by https if it collects information from the visitor, such as an email address or payment details. Sites which display information without interacting with the visitor do not require this level of security.
While every effort has been made to provide accurate and up to date information, any information supplied may vary and may not apply to everyone or at all times. Please check with the company or organisation concerned. The inclusion in or omission from my pages of any reference to commercial or other organisations is not intended to convey any preference or recommendation.
Where links are provided to other websites, no responsibility can be accepted for accuracy or suitability of content, nor for the continued availability of the site. This web site is produced in good faith but is intended to provide general information only and should not be relied upon. For more detailed information contact the relevant company or service.
It is my intention to keep this site safe for all the family and I reserve the right to delete or decline any link without notice and without explanation. However it is not possible to make any guarantee and none is made or implied. Visitors should therefore use their own judgement.
In some cases pages contain content supplied by other persons or organisations. This content may include opinions with which I do not agree and over which I have no control. Search results for this site and external content may also include advertising. Any product or service so promoted does not indicate an endorsement by me.
This website uses Javascript to display a greeting at the top of each page. If you prefer not to have Javascript running, this greeting will not appear. Javascript is not currently used anywhere else within this website although it has previously and may again in the future.
Please note that Javascript and Java are not connected despite the similar names. Javascript is a coding language left over from the old Netscape web browser and can be used to add features to a web page. Java (from Oracle and previously Sun Microsystems) is a plugin. Unlike Javascript it required regular security updates which are no longer provided. Browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox have ended support for the Java plugin along with other plugins such as Flash and Silverlight. This does not affect the use of Javascript.
