Cookies

The site sets a temporary session cookie on a visitor's computer whenever a page is visited. Readers who do not intend to log in or edit may deny this cookie; it will be deleted at the end of the browser's session. More cookies may be set when one logs in to maintain logged-in status. If one saves a user name or password in one's browser, that information will be saved for up to 30 days or 180 days if selecting the keep me logged in option, and this information will be resent to the server on every visit. Contributors using a public machine who do not wish to show their username to future users of the machine should clear these cookies after use.

(The following applies only when using the default Vector skin.)

  • Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to any website to serve ads on this website.
  • Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to this website on other websites.
  • Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting the ads preference manager and aboutads.info site.

To avoid these third-party cookies on this site select the MonoBook skin within the appearance tab for your account preferences. Other options like disabling third-party cookies within your browser settings, enabling ad-blockers or private-mode browsing might also be suitable, but advertisers are a crafty bunch (i.e. geotagging).
