The only cookies we set ourselves are created by our use of PHP Session variables to maintain state across the site pages. PHP Sessions create a unique ID for each visitor’s browser which is stored in a cookie. The variables themselves are held on the server and linked to this ID. The cookie is merely a reference (it contains no personal information and cannot be used to identify you) and is deleted when you close your browser.
Like many websites we may include functionality, secure purchasing or analytical services provided by third party software which set their own cookies. The third parties to which we currently or may link to are AddThis, YouTube, Google Analytics and various WordPress plugins.
