How does the Cloud Under website use cookies?

Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time someone visits a Cloud Under website (e.g. the main website or the Cloud Under Blog), software by another company generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We cannot identify individual users.

This cookie will automatically be deleted by your web browser as soon as you close your web browser. To find out more about this topic, see Wikipedia page Cross-site request forgery.
