Firstly, to store login and password details of the website administrator when they are logged in (i.e. me).
Secondly, if you leave a comment on one of the posts then the form creates a cookie to store your name and email address whilst you’re visiting the site to make leaving further comments quicker.
Thirdly, I recommend various Books, Magazines and Products via Google ads and Amazon. If you click one of these links and go to that provider’s website then a cookie is created by their website which lets them know that I sent you – basically like a referral letter.
Google also creates cookies on this site via it’s avert panel. This cookie is called _drt_ and it tells Google when you click on an advert and buy a product that you came from this site.
Other services such as Twitter, Facebook and Stumbleupon may also leave a cookie on your computer if you are logged into that service when you visit this site. It helps you “like” or “re-tweet” a page or post for example.
I am confident that all of these uses of cookies are completely safe and relevant.
