Cookies are small pieces of data stored in text files, that are stored on your device’s browser when a website is loaded. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors to allow the website to perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (also known as ‘first-party cookies’), or by third-party parties, such as those who serve third-party content and services to the website.

These are the cookies set:

  • Account: These are cookies set by WordPress used to identify if a user has registered and logged in, allowing registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions. Our website does not allow public registrations, so these cookies are only necessary for site administrators, moderators, and writers.
  • Preferences: These are cookies set by WordPress used to store user preferences such as account name, language, and location when logging in.
  • Cart Information: These are cookies set by WooCommerce to remember your cart information (products added to your cart) when you are browsing as a guest.

Other Third-Party Content and Cookies

The website embeds Google Maps for location purposes and Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for news, events calendar, or social media presence. These websites behave the same way as if you visited the site itself. These websites then may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with their content. You may refer to each of their privacy policy.

Instagram and Facebook

Instagram and Facebook page embed is available on the home page to display recent posts, galleries, and other announcements from Facebook. Facebook like, share, and comments are also used for blog posts.

If you do not feel safe with Google Analytics or for whatever reason, you can opt-out of Google Analytics services by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (gtag.js, ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) that is running on any websites using Google Analytics from collecting and sharing information about visit activity. You may refer to Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

Google reCAPTCHA

reCAPTCHA is a trusted service from Google that helps protect websites and apps from spam and abuse by blocking automated software and other malicious submissions to any form. However, reCAPTCHA collects personal information from users to determine whether or not they’re human and not a bot.
