What cookies are used on this website?

This website runs on WordPress and uses Google Analytics for statistical purposes. Both generate cookies.

WordPress

WordPress generates cookies for those who comment on a site. This is to save visitors from having to re-type all their information again when they want to leave another comment. Three cookies are set for commenters:

comment_author
comment_author_email
comment_author_url

The commenter cookies are set to expire a little under one year from the time they’re set. However, the ability for visitors to leave comments on this site is currently disabled. These commenter cookies will not, therefore, be generated.

WordPress also generates cookies for logged-in users. However, only the authors and administrators of this website are able to login and they have consented to the login cookies. As a user of the website, you are not affected by these cookies.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics tracking is used on this site. Google Analytics uses cookies to track visitor interaction, such as unique visitors, activity and traffic source. Information is collected anonymously by Google Analytics and no personal information is collected. This information provides us with reports to help to improve the site. The cookies are called:

__utma
__utmt
__utmb
__utmc
__utmv
__utmz

The cookies will remain on your computer or mobile device for a maximum of 2 years (the lifetime of the different cookies ranges from 10 minutes to 2 years, depending on the cookie). If you wish, you can delete any cookies already set, and prevent any further cookies from being set, by using the Internet options in your browser. This will not affect use of this website. Alternatively, you can opt out of Google Analytics for all websites by downloading and installing a browser add-on. For further information on Google Analytics’ cookies, see this Google developers page.
