Cookies

We may sometimes place small data files on your computer. These are known as cookies. Most websites do this.

They improve things by:

  • remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs

Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.

To learn more about cookies and how to manage them, visit AboutCookies.org, or please read on to find out exactly how and where we use cookies.

How we use cookies

At present this site uses just one cookie:

has_js

When you arrive at the website a check is made to see whether Javascript is enabled in your browser. If it is enabled then this cookie is created. If it is disabled, no cookie is created.

Javascript is usually on by default and is used on the web to write small programs that provide functionality for the site. We use Javascript for the audio streaming controls on the audio clip pages. If you have Javascript disabled in your browser you will not be able to listen to the audio, but the rest of the site should function normally.

This cookie is deleted when you end your browsing session.

(A browsing session is usually ended by closing all your browser windows, though some browsers like Chrome can continue to run in the background until explicitly closed or the machine is restarted.)
