The different types of cookies and what each one is used for:
- First Party: These are cookies set by us and only usable by us, and help keep the site running as you would expect, such as keeping you logged in during a browsing session.
- Third Party: These are cookies set by third parties that we use. The only third party cookies we use are for evaluating our website (we use Google Analytics for this), and those that allow you to share things on your social media sites.
