What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text that are stored in your web browser and allow websites to “remember” information about you and your preferences. Cookies can be set to be used only in a single session or persistently for multiple sessions. Cookies may be set by a website you visit or by third parties that provide services to the website.

How we use cookies

The lcdr Universe website itself does not use cookies for normal site browsing. However, we embed content from other sites on some pages that may set cookies to remember your preferences.

We use YouTube embeds on some pages to display video, and we use reCaptcha embeds on some forms to protect against spam. These embeds may set cookies.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Ironically, we must also use a cookie to remember if you pressed “ok” on the cookie notice.

We use cookies solely to provide you with site features, and cookies are necessary for these features to work.

How to turn off cookies

Most browsers have options to manage and delete cookies. See for example this article or search the web for “how to delete cookies”. However, if you disable cookies, login for the forum won’t work anymore, as cookies are required to remember your login status.
