To make my personal website work properly, I sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or 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.
My personal website use:
- first-party session cookies, (which does not actually require informed consent)
- first-party persistent cookies to remember if you have commented on or replied to a post or a page. Neither your name nor your e-mail needs to be correct if you just want to comment. Your e-mail is required if you want me to get back to you directly and is not shared. If you want me to delete your information that you provided before, contact me from here.
- third-party cookies of embedded content from external domains which they use for their own purposes, like to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.
Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.
The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here. This is my personal non-profit blog and it does not contain ads. I don’t share its data with any other party.
Your consent is session based and not persistent. For withdrawal, please just close your web browser window and delete these cookies.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.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.
