What are cookies?

Website cookies are small text files that are used by a website to store information in your browser (Google Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox etc). They are sent from a website's server and the users’ browsers. When you visit a website, it may send a cookie from its server to your browser. The browser then stores the cookie on your device in a cookie file.

We have limited control over 3rd party cookies and occasionally we may need to embed a tweet or a video to add context to our guides, as an example, when we provide a guide for adding quality captions in YouTube, we would embed a video within the guide, that may show the differences between auto-generated and manually edited captions, to discuss the differences and impact incorrect captions could have on users.

Can I see these 3rd party cookie policies?

Yes, of course. Twitter embeds cookies in an anonymous fasion, they do not use these cookies to identify you: Twitter for Websites Privacy Policy.
We will always embed YouTube videos with "privacy-Enhanced mode" which does not track you or personalise any content you see across the web: YouTube's privacy-enhanced Mode.

Can I control my cookies?

Yes. You can use your browser settings to control cookies, in several ways:

How do I change my browser's cookie settings?

Each browser has different ways of adjusting the settings, options may have slightly different names and they will likely appear in different locations in the menu options, please visit the page for the browser(s) you use to familiarise yourself with locating the correct settings for your preferences (each links to an external site):

Local Storage

We add a non-cookie token to your browser's local storage, only if you interact with the Theme toggle settings, this value cannot be used to identify you in any way, it simply sets a key of 'data-theme' and a value of either 'light' or 'dark' if you choose one of those options, selecting the System option will completely remove that token from your device. This token is functional, it is required for a user's selected theme to persist across pages and in no way can it cause any harm to a user, nor can it be tracked in any way. This site will respect your operating system preferences, so as an example, a user who has Dark Theme as their operating system preference will initially see the dark theme of our site and this does not require any interaction with the theme selection control, nor will it store a token in your browser.
