A cookie is a text-only string of information that is passed to your computer’s hard disk through your web browser so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. The data collected will not be used to determine your personal identity or to create a link to the pseudonym under which your profile is generated without your explicit permission.

Like many websites, this website also uses cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service. If you also do not wish to receive these cookies then you can easily modify your web browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if these cookies are disabled, and so in order to enjoy the site to the full, we recommend that you leave them switched on.

If you create an account with our site you may opt-in to saving your name and email address 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 visit our login page, 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.
