Certain cookies contain personal information (e.g. when you opt-in to save your details when leaving a comment), but most cookies instead collect general information and are used to improve your user experience.

The main types of cookies a website may use are:

– First-party cookies are from the website you are visiting.
– Third-party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you are visiting. For example social networks through the use of embedded content on our website or when you share a link to one of our pages.
