A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser.
If you have already accessed our website and do not accept our uses of cookies, you should immediately discontinue use of our website.
We use Google analytics to track which pages are most popular, so we can focus on these areas to give you a better user experience.
Google analytics stores five cookies (_utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmt, _utmz).
S – This is a unique identifier used by Google applications to store user preferences.
PREF – A persistent cookie, which expires a little under two years from the time it’s set. This is a unique identifier used by Google applications to store user preferences.
NID – A persistent cookie, which expires a little under six months from the time it’s set. This is a unique identifier used by Google applications to store user preferences.
We use WordPress as our content management system on the website.
wordpress_test_cookie is set when you navigate to the login page. The cookie is used to check whether your web browser is set to allow, or reject cookies. This is asession cookie and deleted when you close your web browser.
Sometimes we use Cloudflares’ CDN, DNS, DDoS protection and security to further protect our users.
__cfduid – The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the specific visitor’s machine is trusted (e.g. because they’ve completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows us to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information.
Because Cloudflare uses this cookie to identify both HTTP and HTTPS requests from known clients, we do not set the “secure” flag on it. This is not a risk, however, as mentioned above the cookie does not contain sensitive data.
This cookie is strictly necessary for Cloudflare’s security features and cannot be turned off.
The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
