What is a cookie
A “cookie” is a small text file that records specific pieces of information and stores it on your device. It can record how you move your way around a website so that, when you revisit that website, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit.
Cookies are used by nearly all websites to analyze traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes. They do not harm your system.
You can block cookies at any time by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
There are different types of cookies.
Cookies help me make the website function properly, make it more secure, provide better user experience, and understand how the website performs and to analyze what works and where it needs improvement.
If you have an account and you log in to this website, I 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, I 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.
When you watch a video on the website, my video hosting provider, Vimeo, saves a cookie in your browser that supports video functionality like closed-captions and other preferences, saves your playback position, and tracks views.
Google Analytics gathers information allowing me to understand interactions with the website and ultimately refine that experience to make it better.
