About Cookies

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Many websites do this.

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer (including your mobile device) when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies are a standard part of the HTTP protocol that implements the World Wide Web (WWW), and are specified in RFC 6265.

We use first-party "session" cookies whenever you log in. By definition, session cookies are designed to expire when you exit your browser or log off. If you enable "Keep me logged in" (aka "Remember me"), we also store information in a first-party "permanent" cookie on your browser so that we can automatically log you back in when you visit our site even after you exit your browser. If you choose to use other sites (such as GitHub) for authentication to this site, then that other site will probably use cookies (and thus what they do with cookies will also apply). Please note that we can't control what other sites do.

The cookies we set are only used to support capabilities related to this site. Consent can be withdrawn - just delete the cookies on your browser. You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish. For details, see cookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work. In particular, logging into this site depends on session cookies (on this and many other sites).
