What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the site owners about how people are using heir site.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies used on this site
There are four main types of cookies used by this website.
Google Analytics - Google Analytics is a tool that collects information about how visitors use our site. We use this to create reports on site visitors, where they came from, how long they spend on a page, which content they look at, how they found our website and which actions they took. This is a very common tool which does not store any personally identifiable information, and the information it does store is aggregated - i.e. we look at information from many visits from lots of people to get a picture of what's going on.
In addition, Google Analytics only reports on information relating to this site - it can't continue to track your movements around the internet after leaving our site (it is known as a first-party cookie). Google Analytics is really useful for us because then we know what is working and if people are using our site. For example, if people don't spend very long on a page on average, then we will look at how we can make it more readable. Or if lots of people are looking at a blog we've just put up, then we can find out why and try to replicate that the next time we put up a blog.
There are several cookies associated with Google Analytics with names like _utma and _ga. You can read more on this here.
So what exactly is stored inside one of these cookies? It's mainly the time, what website is being looked at, and an ID that is unique to you. So one of these cookies is set when you visit our site and ends when you leave. Another is stored for a longer time - this one includes a "Visitor ID", a random ID given to you so Google Analytics knows that you're the same person browsing our site. So if you come back another time, then we will know that and you get recorded as a "return visitor" rather than a new one. But note again - we don't know anything identifiable about you. This is useful information because we know our site is good enough that people come back. If you want a more technical explanation you can look here.
However - you can opt-out of this bveahviour for this and other sites using Google Analytics. To do so, tell Google here.
Adaptive Image - when you come to our site, this cookie stores your screen size (and nothing else). This is then used to scale images so they look good on your screen - so if you are viewing this site on a mobile phone, then you'll get scaled-down images compared to viewing it on a desktop computer. This information is kept throughout your "session" - that is, the length of time you are looking at this site.
Drupal.tableDrag.showWeight - just like Has_js, this is made by Drupal. This one stores user interface preferences and is just a single digit.
