Cookies used on our website

We will save the following cookies on your computer:

Operational cookies

Our website is hosted and designed using WordPress.com. This is one of the most popular site building services on the internet, powering over 69 million sites.

WordPress does not use operational cookies. Cookies may be used if you access the site when logged-in with a WordPress account. These include:
•wordpress_test_cookie – this establishes your connection to WordPress
•wordpress_logged_in – this is a session cookie used to aid navigation when logged in to WordPress

These cookies are covered by WordPress privacy policy as they are dependent on the user choosing to access when logged in.

There are no mandatory first-party cookies used.

Stats cookies

To allow us to understand how visitors are using the site – how many visitors we get each day, from what country they are accessing etc. – WordPress creates statistics. In order to do so, it uses cookies.

These cookies are essential for the function of the site and contain no personally-identifying information:
•__qca – set by Quantcast, an independent measurement and research company, that compiles the stats for WordPress.com sites.

Third party cookies

Our site has a number of pages with embedded videos or other content from a third party. An example is the use of videos embedded from YouTube. Cookies placed on your computer or mobile device from a third party are not related to our site.

We do not control how a third party uses their cookies. Please check third party websites’ privacy policies:

Twitter Widget Data: We may tailor the Services for you based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate Twitter buttons or widgets. When these websites first load our buttons or widgets for display, we receive Log Data that includes the web page you visited and a cookie that identifies your browser (“Widget Data”). After a maximum of 10 days, we start the process of deleting, de-identifying, or aggregating Widget Data, which is usually instantaneous but in some cases may take up to a week. We may use Widget Data to tailor content for you, such as suggestions for people to follow and other content you may be interested in. Tailored content is stored with only browser cookies or device IDs and is separated from other Widget Data such as page-visit information. Learn more about the feature, including how you can suspend it or turn it off, here. For Tweets, Log Data, and other information that we receive from interactions with Twitter buttons or widgets, please see the other sections of this Privacy Policy.
