The Cookies We Set
Site preferences cookies:
To provide you with a great experience on this site, we provide the functionality to set your preferences for how this site runs when you use it.
To remember your preferences, we need to set cookies so that this information can be called whenever you interact with a page that is affected by your preferences.
The following section details which third party cookies you might encounter through this site.
- Third-party analytics are used to track and measure usage of this site so that we can continue to produce engaging content. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the website or pages you visit, which helps us to understand how we can improve the site for you.
- From time to time, we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience while on the site while ensuring we understand which optimizations our users appreciate the most.
- Several partners advertise on our behalf, and affiliate tracking cookies allow us to see if our customers have come to the site through one of our partner sites so that we can credit them appropriately and where applicable allow our affiliate partners to provide any bonus that they may provide you for making a purchase.
Hopefully, that has clarified things for you, and as was previously mentioned, if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not, it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.
