What Are Cookies

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: and

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide.


I do not use advertisers, and any cookies stored are used internally to allow editors to log in and improve user experience by collecting information about how visitors use this website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how this website works.

It should be noted that I do make use of services such as youtube to display dynamic content such as videos which can attempt to load their own advertisers or tracking cookies. I have utilised a Content-security-policy to attempt to block these unwanted advertisers and protect visitors to this site.

A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out below.

Cloudflare cfduid cookiepersisitent1 yearThe __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 a visitor is in a coffee shop where there may be several infected machines, but the specific visitor's machine is trusted (for example, because they completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows Cloudflare to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID, and does not store any personally identifiable information.
