Cookie Policy

In compliance with EU Law, here is how “cookies” are used on this website.

Cookies are software tools that save information about what you do when browsing a website. While they can be used intrusively to gather information about your browsing habits, most of the use of these tools is benign, and often essential to the operation of the site. Typically cookies either pass information from one website to another, or forwards in time to remember how you used a site in the past. Here is how cookies are used at this website.

Analytics

This site uses the industry standard Google Analytics tools to gather anonymous information about the browsing habits of users. The tools tell us where in the world our visitors come from, which pages they read most, how they found the site, what browsers and operating systems they use, and so on. This information is useful in helping us improve the site in the future.

Spam prevention

The Bad Behavior anti-spam tool, which we use to help prevent spam comments appearing on this site, uses a cookie.

Social media

Those little buttons that allow you to easily share posts with your friends on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and so on use cookies to tell the social media site what information you wanted to share.

Comments

WordPress (the software on which this website runs) uses cookies to remember your name, email and URL so that once you have made one comment here you don’t have to type those things in each time.

Mobile Theme

A cookie (akm_mobile) is stored for 3.5 days to remember whether or not a visitor of the site wishes to view its mobile version. Learn more about this cookie.

Sharing by Email

Data Used: When sharing content via email, the following information is used: sharing party’s name and email address, IP address (for spam checking), user agent (for spam checking), and email body/content. This content will be sent to the spam protection software so that a spam check can be performed.

Protect

In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.

Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.

Data Recorded: Failed login attempts, which contain the user’s IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information.

The little widgets that allow you to click through and buy books from the Wizard’s Tower bookstore use cookies to tell the store website which book you wanted. Links to Kickstarter projects in which Juliet is involved also use cookies.
