Cookie Policy

Cookie Policy & GDPR

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and at its most basic, it specifies how personal data should be lawfully processed (including how it’s collected, used, protected or interacted with in general). Please see our detailed cookie policy for more information.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ’session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’). Many of the cookies we use are only set if a visitor is a registered user, whilst others are set for all visitors upon certain actions.

Cookies we use

We, therefore, use cookie technology to track or record information about visitors to our website using Google Analytics. These details are only used to improve how a website functions. Your privacy and security are not compromised when you accept a cookie from our website.

Strictly Necessary

These are the cookies that are essential for the website to perform its basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions.

These cookies are used to store preferences set by users such as account name, language, and location. Examples:
akm_mobile – stores whether a user has chosen to view the mobile version of a site.
wordpress_logged_in* – used to check whether the current visitor is a logged in WordPress.com user.
wp-settings-{user_id} – used to persist a user’s wp-admin configuration.
wp_sharing_{id} – used to track whether or not a user has already performed an action.
