Cookies

Cookies are small files that are put on your computer by websites as you surf them. These cookies can store lots of information, which can have privacy implications. We like to think all the cookies used on this site are fairly innocuous, but that’s for you to judge.

Anonymous tracking software.

We use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google. This service gathers anonymous data regarding how people use our site and then provide us with visitor statistics, details of page views, etc. We use this data to help optimize our site for those of you that use it. If this makes you feel uncomfortable, you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics here.

Comments.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Website widgets.

To deliver a content-rich site, and one that incorporates social functionality, we have several widgets that operate on the site – this can be anything from Twitter buttons to the software that powers blog comments. Collectively they make our website more interesting, but most of them use cookies as part of their operation. Here is a list of the third-parties tracking data on our site via cookies:

  • YouTube
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest

We are working to find out exactly what each of these widgets does, but we are pretty confident that they all collect data anonymously unless you are already logged-in to their service.
