We don’t have any clever code on here which allows you to reject cookies and still use this site. 

If you decide that you don’t want to accept cookies then the only real option is to not use the site. That would be a shame so I’ll outline here exactly how cookies are used in the hope that you decide to stay……

The site is built on a WordPress platform. Their official cookie information says:

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

When you log in, we 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.


The site also uses Google Analytics for the sole purpose of seeing which pages are viewed the most. On the Google Analytics page I can see the numbers of people who view each article but not who they are. Google will use cookies to track the data. 

Signup forms are provided by Mail Chimp – no doubt they add some cookies too to make sure that you don’t accidentally sign up twice. 

Also, videos are currently hosted on who will add their own cookie information. 

That is all. Basically, the minimum number of cookies needed to make the site work are used.

I hope that you are OK with this but if not then I respect your privacy.
