What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They can ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (‘third party cookies’).

Cookies set by WordPress

This is a WordPress site. WordPress sites can use cookies for a number of different purposes.

Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalised experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks (we don’t use these). Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the ‘like’ or ‘follow’ button on a post, for example).

Below are different categories of cookies set by WordPress.

Strictly Necessary: These are the cookies that are essential for to perform basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions ( this site does not allow user login or account ficmntions, so no such cookies are used).

Functionality: These cookies are used to store preferences set by users such as account name, language, and location.

Performance: Performance cookies collect information on how users interact with the websites , including what pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. These details are only used to improve how the website functions.  Your identity is not recorded; data is aggregated.

Tracking: These are set by trusted third party networks (e.g. Google Analytics) to track details such as the number of unique visitors, and pageviews to help improve the user experience. These cookies are not used for advertising follow up.

Third Party/Embedded Content: WordPress offers use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors. These include social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content from YouTube and Vimeo. As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties, and used by them to track your online activity. This site does not include Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo or similar third party served content and so ther are no cookies of this type.
