1.1.6 Cookie Use
A cookie consists of a piece of text sent by a web server to your web browser, which is then stored by your browser. The information is then sent back to our web server each time your browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify individual web browsers. It does not contain personally identifiable information such as your name or other personal details – but may enable us to identify and profile your activities if you are logged in to our site.
Accessing our free blog content
When you can access our free blog posts, a cookie is placed on your computer by our content management system (CMS) WordPress, which uses a session cookie. This temporary cookie is not used for tracking purposes, it’s an essential, “strictly necessary” part of providing content to you through our CMS.
We use persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you return to our site. These cookies are essential to use of our web service in recognizing your membership status, and as such are permitted by law.
We also use other web services provided by other companies to improve the experience for users of Optiform.com and to help us review how we improve our service for users and commercially.
How can I block cookies from these service?
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, while some browsers allow you to reject simply third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
If you want to manage privacy you can install the free browser plugin called Ghostery which gives you a chance to learn more about each service it identifies on a site and block their cookies or Scripts. It gives information on how they describe themselves, a link to their privacy policies.
