The EU Cookie Law is all very hazy indeed but I’m going to include this page in an attempt to comply with it regardless.

This website uses small text files called cookies to store small amounts of data on your device which is accessible by the server this website is hosted on. They can have a range of uses such as keeping you logged in or remembering what pages you have visited.

By continuing to use this website, you are agreeing to have these cookies stored on your computer. If you disagree with this, please clear your browser cookies and get off the internet because just about every gosh darn website uses them!

Here’s a list of the cookies this site uses, just for transparency’s sake. This does not include third-party cookies such as Google’s and since the table is automatically generated, not necessarily all of them are active.
