Social media cookies
So you can easily share our content on social media, we have included a panel of sharing buttons. We use AddThis which provides lots of options in one neat package, and adds a number of cookies to the site.
These services are largely designed to track how many times a page has been shared, but can also be used to target and serve advertisements. Please note that we do not allow advertising of any sort, nor do we conduct advertising campaigns. The tracking allows us to assess the impact of the network, and the information will not be used for any purpose other than internal reporting.

Third party cookies

If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics (we’d prefer you didn’t though, as this data is incredibly helpful to us in improving our site).
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so, however, will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern sites
